Those skills are level 7! That is pretty advanced for the term novice lol. The 180 split makes more sense a long side those skills. That is a high level to begin competing at. I was thinking novice = cartwheels and candlesticks! When will your dd get the chance to start competing and good luck to her. Keep stretching.This wasn't my dd competing. Although you are right, she is doing 15 hrs, but has only been on team about 18m so will be competing novice when she starts competing. In this region you move up to intermediate *if* you achieve a benchmark score. "Novice" is actually pretty tough, there were kids there doing bwo-bhs on beam and ro- bhs-lo on floor. I think it's generally deemed that if you only train once or twice a week you compete at floor and vault rather than wag. My child just happens to be caught in the middle as her strength is bars, and beam (except for the leaps :lol, so although not the most flexible or talented she doesn't want to do f+v,,but it's going to take a while for her dance and flexibility to catch up with her strength...
