Level 1 is designed for the beginner gymnast. Focus is on teaching proper techniques, body shapes and positions. This level places great emphasis on fundamentals, safety, and fun.
Boys learn skills on the six men's Olympic events: floor exercise, pommel horse, still rings, vault, parallel bars, and high bar. Trampoline is used periodically in classes as a supplemental training tool.
