All About Gymnastics By Hazel Ethier Commitment Strength Perseverance Bravery Are just a few words that describe gymnastics. There are 10 basic levels of competitive gymnastics. Levels 1-3 are the beginner levels. These girls, on average are 4-10 years old. They compete short routines on all 4 events. Level 4 gymnasts are the next highest level. These girls compete slightly longer routines with more difficult skills. This is a level 4 floor routine. Level 5 is the next most difficult level. This level requires the gymnast to do multiple back handsprings, and jump to the high bar. Level 6 is the last level of compulsory. Which is when the gymnasts are given a specific routine to compete. In level 6 the gymnasts now perform a round off back handspring back tuck on the floor, and a back walkover on beam.
