Level 6


I caught this picture while Andrew was waiting his turn to do the vault.

This year (since summer) Andrew has been training for level 6. There are 10 levels of gymnastics with level 10 being the top level. At each level there are age divisions. The division is determined by your age on Sept. 1st. Andrew will be competing in the 8-9 year old division. To see more about the levels and age divisions check out the website that Jay created for the gym.

Last year Andrew was a level 5 gymnast. The highest meet he could qualify was Regionals. A gymnast can only qualify at State for Regionals. A level 5 gymnast had to get a 48 for a score.

We traveled to Idaho for Regionals. It was a long drive but a lot of fun.

This year as a level 6 Andrew will need to get 44 at State (which is in March) to qualify.

Yesterday to kick off the season (Jan thru April)the gym hosted an exhibition meet. It is the only meet that is held in town and it allowed families and friends to come watch without having to travel all over the State to see their gymnast compete.

In the video you will see Andrew get a low score for high bar. He told us he had to go the bathroom....hmmmm....looks like he forgot some of his routine.

I love watching mens gymnastics. It is fun to see the strength and flexibility. This summer is the Summer Olympics. Men's gymnastics is one of the most watched sports at the Olympics.

We are looking forward to watching more of Andrew's gymnastics this season.
