    My problem is I was in a level 2/3 split class, and I could not get my backbend kickover, but my coach moved me to level3 anyways. And I still have trouble with the backbend kickover…..

    I tumble locally and I am switching gyms to one a little more advanced and we disintegrated have levels at my old gym I am going to finish my last week perfecting these and then go to level 3 but my gym is only comp tumbling ✌

  • Sky January 12, 2017, 5:50 pm

    Same MG, my gym doesn’t have a bar or vault, it’s just beam and floor, and we rarely do beam.

  • Sky January 12, 2017, 5:51 pm

    Well, my old gym didn’t have those things, but I switched gyms. I go to Perfect 10.

    I am 12 years old and want to start going back to gymnastics. I’ve mastered some skills, but have completely forgotten others. If I go back, will they put me with the little kids?

    • gymnasticshq January 24, 2017, 11:19 am

      I am sure they will find a good class for you with older kids!

    • Zoe January 31, 2017, 3:47 pm

      I am also 12, I am shy, and was scared to be with just little kids ( I didn’t want to be the oldest one at my level) but I was put with smaller kids , but I still love it! They are nice and funny and a good time. If you ever look at the older kids, do NOT compare them to you! A lot of people do this and end up sad (because they were the same age and weren’t as good as the higher levels) but a recommendation is be proud of them and when ever you see them doing all the big skills, just imagine you doing those skills! I’m sure you will love gymnastics no matter what(like me) it’s a good work out and can get hard at times but no matter what it’s a good time!!!!

      • Madison February 22, 2017, 10:16 pm

        Same here! Nice to know other people feel that way!

    • Charlotte March 11, 2017, 2:15 pm

      No you will be with your age group, unless you’re going to do competitive. If you are any age can be in it.

    • L.A.T April 22, 2017, 10:05 pm

      Same im 9 and want 2 start going to gymnastics but im worried that i will be put in level 1 with the little kids.

    Is it to late to start gymnastics at age eleven

  • Belle March 5, 2017, 8:02 pm

    Is it to late to start gymnastics at age eleven?

    • Averi March 8, 2017, 4:26 pm

      Definitely not. Gymnastics is a sport for any age at all. I’m 9 and my sister is 2, and we both just started gymnastics.

    Wth you did not understand what if you don’t know what or how you do that

  • Kate April 1, 2017, 12:51 pm

    I am 10. I’ve never really done gymnastics. According to this website I’m in level two. I want to start in a gym but I’m afraid I won’t be as good. Also I can’t get my kick over, otherwise I’m level 3.

  • Crystal Pino Archuleta April 12, 2017, 9:03 pm

    Yes! My daughter can do all these and more she is so excited to be level 2 and work her way to level 3!

  • Tren April 16, 2017, 11:07 pm

    I am 13 and apparently a level 2… Because of my age I am scared to go to a gym. Should I be scared, and will I be with 2 year olds or my aged girls?

  • Tren April 17, 2017, 12:49 am

    What thing?

  • Anna April 25, 2017, 4:51 pm

    I am Level 3 on everything but bar, would I still be level 2?
