Level 2 gymnasts are becoming committed athletes! Moving forward with many new skills, Level 2 students are introduced to one handed cartwheels, back bend kick-overs, round offs and split leaps. They will work on dive rolls on vault while continuing to refine the important fundamental straight, straddle and tuck jumps. On bars they will focus on pull overs, back hip circles and glide swings. Level 2 gymnasts will be introduced to many new beam skills including relevés, arabesques, tuck jumps, squat turns and cartwheels on the beam. Level 2 is the level where we start to see gymnasts distinguish themselves as athletes in the gym. They are working hard and have enough skills and physical strength to take them out of the large category of beginning gymnasts and into the more exclusive groupings of Level 3 and 4 gymnastics.
