Levels 2 and 3 are often grouped together. Gymnasts continue to refine skills learned in earlier levels while working toward more advanced skills. On floor, some of the skills the gymnasts are working on include handstand forward rolls, walkovers, and handsprings. Handstand fall flat vaults and front handspring vault drills are the focus of vault. On bars, our gymnasts will be working on mill circles, underswing dismounts, and glide swings. On beam, handstands, cartwheels, split jumps, and 1/2 turns on 1 foot will be worked on.
