Pre-Team Level 3 uses the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic Level 3 guidelines to teach young boys the fundamentals of competitive gymnastics. Level 3 gymnasts develop strength through apparatus work, learning JO Level 3 routines, and conditioning. Each of these classes are intended to be fun while maximizing the potential for each gymnast! Classes are held 2 times per week, and are intended to help athletes prepare for Junior Olympic competitive level 4. Pre-Team gymnasts are given the opportunity to perform in 2-3 exhibition-type meets per season to show family and friends the skills and routines they have developed!
