placement in the competitive program
Each category and level of gymnastics competition has certain skill requirements. The score of a routine is arrived by at determining firstly whether the skill requirements have been met by the gymnast and secondly by the form and perfection displayed by the gymnast in the execution of those skills.
Accordingly, each gymnast will be placed in the competitive level best suited to her/his skill level, form, and maturity. The Head Coach will assign each gymnast to a category and level which will be challenging yet allow her/him to experience individual success.
All gymnasts progress at different rates; according to age, physical growth, maturity, etc., therefore, not all gymnasts can progress from one level to the next at the same rate. However, eve n within the same level, each gymnast who trains seriously is expected to progress and experience increased personal success.
The placement of gymnasts in competitive levels is the sole responsibility of the Head Coaches.
