Hi,
I have been trying to find a fact sheet/list of all the different gymnastics levels & what skills are required to obtain each level. From junior/lowest to senior/highest levels. My daughter wants to see what she has to work towards as a way to set goals & keep motivated but I can't find the list of requirements for WA. Also what is a great 'starting gymnastics' book for a 6 year old. Thanks

By the way, both of the links I provided are assuming you’re in a USAG program. And if so, just FYI- skills requirements are the same for every state. Have fun!

Those requirements are for USAG. She is from Australia. I am assuming WA is Western Australia. But the requirements are the same for all Australian States.

The requirements are not public, and are only available to qualified coaches. But I will do a basic list up for you and post it here.

This should be pinned on the Australian forum.
Good idea, we have had this question before. And you can’t just search it up.

I added level 7-10 for those who might be interested. But u til you have been involved for a while it probably makes little sense. But that way all the details are here for anyone who wants to look them up.
