Recreational Levels 1-5
Girls recreational classes are for beginner gymnasts to skilled gymnasts.
These classes teach gymnastics skills correctly in a safe environment, all with a professional instructor.
Gymnasts are evaluated 3 times during a 10 week session. Gymnasts will pass their level once they have mastered the “must master” skill for their level AND is at 90% for the rest of the skills in their level. It is completely normal for a gymnast to repeat levels, these skills take time to master. Required skills and gymnast evaluations can be found in your Parent Portal account.
