Mobility Requirements 2016-11-08T20:22:02+00:00

Girls mobility requirements set by USAG and Emeth Gymnastics.

Starting with the 2014-2015 competition season, Emeth is changing their past policy of having additional scoring requirements in favor of removing Emeth’s requirements and relying strictly on the USAG requirements. This allows Emeth to place a higher emphasis on the mastery of skills and maturity required in the next level. Emeth feels this will help coaches, gymnasts and parents to focus on striving for excellence in their training, efforts to do their best in competition, and their actual skills rather then defining themselves solely by a score.

USAG’s official Mobility requirements can be found here in detail. Below are  simplified versions

Girls Team:

  • There is no score requirement at New Level 2 in order to be eligible to move up.
  • In New Level 3 & 4, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, athletes are required to score a minimum of an 8.5 on each event and a 34.0 All Around before being eligible to move up.
  • In New Level 5, athletes are required an 8.3 on events and a 33.5 All Around
