My daughter is a seven-year-old level 3. She has been doing exceptionally well in her first year of competition, is strong, and has acquired higher level skills with minimal uptraining. (competes kips, climbs the rope with legs piked, can do back tucks) The gym she is at is very much on the one year - one level plan with few exceptions. I am considering approaching them about an accelerated plan for her and I am wondering what the appropriate or typical accelerated path is. My idea is she could do 4 and 5 next year by training both over the summer and trying to score out of 4 at her first meet next year. Is this something gyms are receptive to? A gymnast I know socially competed one meet at 5 and then went to 7, is that more typical?
