Junior Olympic 

Compulsory & Optional

JO Compulsory Levels (1-5)

Compulsory means routines on all four events are the same for every competitor nationally at their specific level.

Practice: 3-5 sessions/week

JO Optional Levels (6-10)

Optional means routines differ by gymnast, but maintain a set of guidelines for skills, difficulty and dance elements for each specific level. The guideline requirements are nationally based so that gymnasts can potentially qualify to compete in Regional and National competitions at certain levels.

Practice: 5-8 sessions/week
