Participation in our Level 4 and higher USAG competitive teams is by invite and try-out only. These athletes train year round, 9 to 15 hours per week depending on their level. These teams require a high level of commitment from both the athletes and their families.
Women’s Team Program
- Level 3 is our girls’ introductory “Compulsory” competitive team level. Lower in intensity and with fewer required practice hours, this is a great place for gymnasts to test out the competitive atmosphere. Level 3 team is comprised of the 4 & 5-year-old “Super Stars” and older gymnasts from our Basics program who are showing promise as competitive gymnasts, who show outstanding work ethic and attitudes in their regular classes and/or who want to compete but cannot make the commitment to higher level teams . Level 3 gymnasts must be 5 years old to compete. Most competitions are local, but opportunities are opening up for out-of-state competitions.
- Level’s 4, 5, and 6 are the current “Compulsory” levels of competitive USAG gymnastics. Gymnasts at this level must be proficient in the skills necessary to perform routines which are designed by USA Gymnastics. USAG levels are progressive, building upon the skills required at the previous level. The Girl’s compulsory competitive season is September through December.
- Levels 7, 8, 9, and 10 are the “Optional” USAG gymnastics levels. Optional Level gymnasts follow USAG guidelines and compete individually choreographed routine. Levels 7 and 8 have competitive opportunities up to and including the Wyoming State Championships and Level 8 gymnasts who qualify may compete at the Regional III Championships. Currently, Level 8 is the highest level we compete at Frontier Gymnastics. However, the Level 9 competitive season culminates at the Western Championships and the Level 10 at the Jr. Olympic National Championships. We are striving to develop girls to compete at these levels in the next few years. Girl’s Optional Season is January through as late as April/May.
Men’s Team Program
- Level 4 is our introductory Men’s Team level. As with the girls compulsory program, gymnasts at this level must be proficient in the skills necessary to perform routines which are designed by USA Gymnastics. USAG levels are progressive, building upon the skills required at the previous level. Our team members train 5 hours per week and compete in Wyoming and Colorado. Level 4 boy’s competitive season culminates with the Wyoming State Championship in March.
- Levels 5 and 6 are more advanced compulsory USAG levels. These athletes train 10 hours per week, compete in Wyoming and Colorado, compete at the Wyoming State Championships and may qualify at State to compete at Men’s Region IX Championships. Our boys’ season is from November or December through March or April.
