Wondering if a gymnast is ready to move up? Here’s help.

I get a lot of questions from people about move-ups, so I thought that now was a great time to share the way that I do them. These lists are comprised of the four things that I think are important when making the decision of whether a gymnast is ready to move up: 1) the skills for the next level 2) working the skills for two levels above (not perfected) 3) a concept of the skill for three levels above 4) set expectations for how all of these skills are performed.

These sheets outline the set of move-up requirements I would use for levels 3-10 and also a pre-team level.

If you’re looking for a way to get your staff, parents and gymnasts all on the same page about moving up – and want to create a solid plan for the future –  these lists are the perfect place to start.
