USAG Developmental Level 2

The Spokane Gymnastics Level 2 team is an introduction to competitive gymnastics, where girls are part of their team for the entire season.

Teams form in summer, and the girls enjoy a special team camp along with various team-building and fundraising activities.

Gymnasts perform two vaults, bar and beam routines, along with a floor routine to instrumental music choreographed by their coaches. They receive individual scores on each event, their all around score, and at competitions with multiple teams, their team score and ranking.

The USAG Developmental Level 3 Team competes at meets in Washington, Idaho and Oregon and if they receive a qualifying score in the regular season have the option to compete at the State Championship meet. The season concludes with a team banquet and sleepover after the final competition, typically late Spring.

The next step from the Level 3 team is up to Level 4. This is based on coach recommendation; factors include maturity, skills, the commitment and goals of the athlete and their support network, and ultimately what is in the best interest of each individual gymnast. It is not unusual for athletes to continue with the same team for multiple seasons.
