Level 4 is where technical fundamentals, combined with the hard-earned strength and flexibility developed in previous levels, begin to transform into powerful skills and graceful sequences. Level 4 gymnasts master back and front handsprings, aerials, and round-off back handsprings. They will learn a front handspring on vault, while still concentrating on strong, hollowed body positioning. Students will strengthen fundamental bar progressions such as kips, clear-hip circles, sole circles, cast handstand and flyaways. On beam, focus is on handstands, cartwheel turns, leaps and adding back walkovers and various mounts and dismounts. Competency in Level 4 leads athletes to opportunities to participate in Performance Athletic Team.
