    is the an ok routine for level 9 beam?

    Fulfills acro requirement. Needs a B dismount, gainer is an A. But to be up to level she will need an additional acro with flight to be up to level. Without knowing what else is in the routine I can’t offer much more!

    Level 4 vault

    that's a pretty decent vault, I wouldn't worry about. Let the coaches and time take care of it. It took my DD until level 7 to figure it all out. First season she did a front handspring she got an 8.0, Last time she did a front handspring she was regional champion.
