Level Testing lets kids showcase their skills and progress to the next level if they’re ready!
Our class level testing program exists to let each student learn the sport of gymnastics in a safe, child-oriented way allowing all of our students to learn skills at their own pace and to reach their potential in gymnastics, this is done with no charge to the gymnast.
Approximately every six weeks on a Saturday the students have the opportunity to come to the gym and show our coaches how well they learned the skills in their level. If a child passes each skill she will be awarded a ribbon and start working on the next levels’ skill set. If skills are not mastered, the student, parents, and coach know what skills to work extra hard on and can try at the next level testing to pass these skills and move to the next level.
Of course, all the students who participate in the level testing will receive a participation ribbon for their hard work!
These clinics help students improve their skills at several advanced gymnastics skills.
Skills Clinics at Texas East Gymnastics are hour-long sessions that give our students an opportunity to learn several advanced gymnastics skills or improve a challenging skill needed for passing their level testing. The students will be totally immersed in that one skill for the entire clinic to ensure cognitive understanding, recognize his/her strengths & weaknesses during that skill, and to develop a plan to master the skill.
Students will be introduced to drills which work the pre-skills necessary to build up to the desired larger skill. These drills will also help them gain a better understanding of what is needed to progress in the desired skill. They will then be given practice skills which can be continued at home in order to continue progress beyond the time allotted at the clinic.
Skills Clinics are usually offered every 4 to 6 weeks. Students can choose to work on one of the four skills offered at that time. Some of the more advanced skills offered include cartwheels, kickovers, back handsprings, and pullovers. Sign up is available at the front desk the week of the Skills Clinic.
