Gymnastics Skills Assessments
Due to the progressive nature of the sport of gymnastics, the class level is based on skill ability as well as the age/maturity of the athlete. Evaluation tools are used to determine the placement of participants in class levels. Evaluations will be conducted a few times each year, separate from class times. All participants will start in Intro 1 or 2, depending on age, until they are evaluated by the gymnastics lead instructor.
