Course Description:
     Prerequisite: age 6 years by date of birth, or successful completion of Junior Gymnast course on advice of instructor.
     This class is more skill oriented and physically challenging for this age group, and is identical to the 2012 USA Gymnastics Womens Level 1 syllabus.   Jr. Level 1 focuses on gymnastics fundamentals, creative movement, listening skills and coordination.  This class introduces the student to all Womens Level 1 skills, safety, and terminology.  Upon successful completion of the USAG minimum requirements for floor, vault, balance beams, and uneven bars, the gymnast will be eligible to progress to USAG Level 1. 
     A child may advance to the next level (Level 1) earlier than the specified age.  Advancement is recommended by the instructor when the student successfully completes a mobility evaluation with an average score of 8.0 or higher, or the student has attained her 8th birthday.  Recommended 1 or 2 classes weekly.
