About Level 2

Level 2 has a minimum age requirement of 5 years of age, and is the first competitive level that Emeth offers. Level 2 has competitive opportunities up to but does not include State Championships. In compulsory levels, every gymnast’s skills and routines are the exactly the same. There is no focus on individuality, but instead the emphasis is placed on training and mastering the core skills that lead up to the more advanced optional levels. Each successive level progresses in its level of difficulty.
