The distinction in levels from 1 to 4 allows each gymnast to compete in a bracket that matches their ability:

  • Level 1 caters to those who are new to gymnastics or have never competed before.

  • Level 2 is perfect for gymnasts who are relatively new to the sport but might have some club-level experience.

  • Level 3 suits those who may have competed in county or regional competitions previously.

  • Level 4 is designed for advanced gymnasts who have experienced high-level competitive environments.
