Hello! I am trying to come with routines. I am an adult who just got my AAU membership, so that I am able to compete in adult competitions when they are available. Can someone out there help me with skills values? They follow the same letter values A, B, C, D, and E, like in USAG.

In the AAU, for each of the events minus Vault, I will need to have 2 B skills and 5 A skills as requirements. Anything above B skills will void my routines.

I just need a few examples of skills if anyone can help. I have registered to compete in a meet in April in North Carolina.

Thanks for any help that anyone out there has to offer.

Happy Flipping :)
