How do the high school gymnastics levels equate to club levels?

Medium = level 5

Superior = level 6

High Superior = level 7

Bonus High Superior = level 8

Does this sound right?

I thought the medium, superior etc. corresponded to skills. Like a medium is a B, superior a C or something like that.

the high school that my DD would attend when she is old enough would require at least to be at the optional level. Most however are at least a Level 8 getting ready for L9 or better - most gymnasts here that are in High school usually are at the level 9 ability when they enter high school and want to be on team anyway.

I think high school gymnastics depends a lot on the state and such. If you list skills, I am sure coaches could give you a better equivlent.

Yeah, in one of the commonly used systems, they are skill ratings. I wouldn't say they correspond all that well to the USAG code, they do I guess in a sense but since connection rules and value part requirements are so different, I honestly never even thought about it that way until now.

There aren't really levels in high school gymnastics, although some places have JV and varsity competitions (seems pretty unusual though). Everyone generally competes under the same rules/requirements.

Thats right, the medium superior... correspond to the skill levels. One thing that i noticed that was different, is that the jumps are ranked a lot higher in USAG. I don't remember what it was that i was looking at the other day, i think it was a straddle jump on beam. In usag, its a C. In highschool, its a medium or superior. It was something like that anyways that really surprised me. I didn't compete high school, but i competed MAGA which uses the high school skill rank thing.

Straddle jump on beam got downgraded to a B for the next quad. It's a C if it is 1/4 turn straddle jump (landing sideways on beam), or done sideways on beam. If it's done facing lengthwise, it is a B. FYI, not that it really matters.
