This is the first level of the progressive boys program. At this level we begin teaching basics: body positions, rolls, cartwheels; approach to the vaulting techniques, basic walks, jumps and balance positions, support positions and pull-over on the uneven bars and basic jumps on the trampoline. Strength and flexibility are also incorporated. All skills are presented in a fun positive atmosphere.
Prerequisite: Mastery of Beginner/Advanced Beginner skills or evaluation by a Team Central staff member.
Once the gymnast has mastered the advanced beginner skills and terminology of the sport they are ready to be introduced to a more challenging curriculum. The skills will require more flexibility and strength. Gymnasts also begin working on the high bar.
