Level 4 Gymnastics Requirements with free checklist download

These are the Level 4 gymnastics requirements; Level 4 is the fourth level in the USA gymnastics level structure.  Level 4 is a compulsory level so each gymnast competes the same, identical routine. These are the skills that make up the new compulsory routine. Level 4 is the first required competitive level. Refer to our article outlining the gymnastics levels for more information on how they work.

To compete in Level 4 gymnastics a gymnast must be able to do the following skills on each of the four events and have reached her 7th birthday prior to the first competition.

We’ve starred the skills that are generally the hardest for gymnasts to learn and most often prohibit a gymnast from moving on to Level 4.

    If my daughter competed the old level 5 for two years scoring high enough to compete at state would she be allowed to compete the new level 4? I know it’s an odd question but it’s a long story.

    • gymnasticshq July 13, 2013, 11:07 am

      She would be allowed to compete either the new level 4 or the new level 5 compulsory levels. The new level 4 would be essentially staying at the same level, so she would probably want to compete the new level 5.

  • Sam February 27, 2014, 5:34 pm

    I am a gymnast. I used to compete in the level 4 but not anymore since they changed it. Is there any way I can compete in just vault and floor?

    • Tina March 5, 2014, 1:39 am

      I don’t think do sorry :-/

      • Lily September 3, 2018, 10:44 pm

        im excellent at gymnastics —— go check out my instargram @twistinglily_ Promotions ?????

    • Sage Peters June 9, 2018, 2:06 am

      You can scratch on an event. Usually it’s because of injury, or to make a friend not as left out when they scratch(A scratch in gymnastics is when you’re either not there, or you can’t compete in all events, so you present, touch or step onto the apparatus, get off, the present again.) Hope this clears some stuff up!

    • Soha April 1, 2019, 5:58 pm

      Yes some gyms can do that

    • Melissa Heck May 13, 2019, 9:15 pm

      You can but can’t move up a level

    • Reni February 1, 2020, 8:53 pm

      If you want to stay in the JO program you cannot. But you can if you move to the XCEL program

    • Evie Campbell November 1, 2020, 10:41 am

      Yes you could you would just get zeros on the other two events

  • Mckayla July 17, 2014, 2:08 pm

    I really want to be a gymnast and I can do a lot of skills but what level are 12 year olds that have been in gymnastics since the age of like 2 usually compete in?

  • gymnasticshq July 17, 2014, 6:35 pm

    Hi McKayla,

    It really depends–there are gymnasts of all ages competing at pretty much every level. If you want to be a gymnast, I say go for it! Regardless of age.

  • Deziree July 21, 2014, 12:34 am

    I wanna do gymnastics im 15 and i can a back bend and then i can kick over then i can touch my foot to my head and i can do cart wheels and and round off

    • Gymnast August 2, 2017, 6:03 pm

      So you can join any club! you will still have a high potential whatever the age. If you practice and practice in your free time you will soon pick up more skills which will help you to compete. The problem is I had this when I was younger, gymnasts who start only being capable of doing floor skills will tend to struggle with alarators but I’m sure if you try your hardest you will make progress to be the head of the game

  • yolo25 July 28, 2014, 10:25 pm

    Hey I was a gymnast when I was four but decided to quit I came back when I was nine I was a level two gymnast it’s been a year I am ten years old and I can do a backhandspring,round off back hand spring, a front walk over, back walk over, front hand spring, splits, handstand ,and other things

    • Kate March 27, 2017, 6:10 pm

      You should ask your coaches after the last meet of the season if they can help you try to reach the level 4 skills

  • yolo25 July 28, 2014, 10:33 pm

    Hey I was a gymnast when I was four but decided to quit I came back when I was nine I was a level two gymnast it’s been a year I am ten years old and I can do a backhandspring,round off back hand spring, a front walk over, back walk over, front hand spring, splits, handstand ,and other things I just need to know what level I am so I can see if I need to tryout for usag in spring please respond

    • Awesome Gymnast March 2, 2017, 12:32 pm

      Your probably a level 3, and you could probably compete level 3 if you get the bars valt and beam skills and it already looks like you have all the floor skills

  • Antonio August 2, 2014, 6:49 pm

    I have always wanted to be a gymnast. I could be a level 6, floor, if I back tuck my back extension roll. I have never been professionally trained and I am 15. What should I do this point?

    • gymnasticshq August 16, 2014, 10:30 am

      I think its never too late to take a class!

  • vpgcjess August 16, 2014, 3:51 pm

    I can do some but not all of these I took an online quiz because we dont have levels at my gym that said i was level 6 or 7 but i cannot even do all the level 4 requirements?! Im on a floor and vault squad by the way.

    • vpgcjess August 16, 2014, 3:52 pm

      I live in England if that helps anything

      • Margaret November 29, 2014, 9:09 am

        Don’t trust quizzes. If you can do all the requirements for passing out of level 1, you’re a level 2. If you can do that PLUS the requirements for passing out of level 2, you’re a level 3. If you can do the requirements for passing out of level 3, you’re a level 4 and so on and so forth.

        But since you live in the UK, look up the UK requirements and do the same thing. Listed above and on this website are USAG requirements

  • Briana Clarke September 5, 2014, 12:46 pm

    I did gymnastics for 4 years but my teacher quit when I was 8 so I stopped, I’m at a level 5 floor but haven’t done anything else, I can’t take lessons cause I cannot afford them what should i do?

    • gymnasticshq September 6, 2014, 1:42 pm

      Hi Briana,
      I would say keep practicing at home! Doing conditioning and practicing the basics (like handstands) will help you improve. And maybe the high school you will go to will have a gymnastics team which would probably be free or at a low cost 🙂

  • Beth November 12, 2014, 5:00 pm

    Briana, If you have a YMCA gymnastics program in your area you can talk to them. They offer financial assistance to girls whose families can not afford gymnastics, and this does include competitive teams.

    I would not recommend practicing at home. It can be dangerous and isn’t going to properly train you to compete in gymnastics. Certified instructors are trained to spot you when you’re learning a new skill as well as teach you how not to get hurt. Also, if you “teach yourself”, then begin training at a gym, you will have o be re-trained in proper technique, making it more difficult to learn the right way to do things.

  • Gwynn cook December 4, 2016, 10:50 am


    Is there height requirement for the vault table at level 4 meets? My daughter is struggling at a height setting of 2 we dropped down to a 0-1 height and she does great…..trying to get her confidence back. Are we allowed to set the vault at any number we find appropriate? Thank you!

    • gymnasticshq December 5, 2016, 8:47 pm

      Yep, the vault table can be at any height!

  • sara December 12, 2016, 11:45 am

  • Sarah Blair January 6, 2017, 9:22 pm

    I have loved gymnastics since I was six or seven years old. I stopped classes when I was little and started again this fall. I am on pre-team this semester and will be team in fall 2017. Right now I’m level 4 but I would love to be higher by fall. Do you have any tips?

  • Rachel February 6, 2017, 3:41 pm

    I am a level 4 going in 5 gymnast, but where I live we don’t have very serious gymnastics. I have never done a meet I have only done s,all club floor competitions, my dream is the go to the olympics but I am the on any competition teams, my club doesn’t do them. I went to a club that did do it but they never gave me a chance to show them how good I was, I can do roundoof backhandsoing and nearly an areal, how could I get them to give me a chance to try out for the gymnastics competition team because it is my dream to get in it, but what we were doing was easy stuff for me and we weren’t doing stuff to challenge me?

  • Hailey April 22, 2017, 10:15 am

    I can do almost everything except the round-off back-handspring back-handspring. Any tips?

    • Grace April 27, 2019, 8:38 pm

      I can do most of the skills and an aerial. Do you think I could still be in level 4?

  • meg May 8, 2017, 10:35 pm

    I really love gymnastics and want to do it. but my question is how much would u say its around for one year, and what can I do if i’m scared to do backhand spring on beam.

  • glitteryunicorncupcake May 16, 2017, 7:11 pm

    On a quiz it said I am level five. But I can do…
    handstand forward roll
    front tuck on trampoline
    handstand on low beam
    back walkover
    round off
    2 out of 3 splits
    back hip circle
    cast away
    all jumps( split, tuck, straight, leap, straddle) on trampoline all on beam all on floor
    What level am I? Please help or respond! Thanks!

    • Anonymous May 22, 2017, 8:09 am

      Glitteryunicorncupcake, quizzes aren’t necessarily that accurate. I’m a gymnast and I think you should probably be in level 3 or 4 (sorry to disappoint). In USAG you would be in level 3 and only move up once you get your round off back handspring, or in WAG you could be in level 4. Hope this helps!

    • Lexi April 2, 2018, 7:02 pm

      You would be around a level two gymnast or on a developmental team based on USAG requirements. If you are looking to join xcel groups you would be in xcel bronze.

  • glitteryunicorncupcake May 16, 2017, 7:15 pm

    I love gymnastics! A quiz said I’m level 5 but I can’t do a kip, front hip circle, giant or more than 1 back hip circle! Is the quiz fibbing or telling the truth? Please help or respond! Thanks!

    Hey, I was in level four a year ago but I got a bad leg injury that got me out of gymnastics for a while and I always really wanted to compete in the Olympics when I’m older. I’m 14 now and I was wondering if it isn’t too late to continue? and if its possible to still learn more things.

      it depends but you might want to get those skills because they might help later on.

  • Michaela June 22, 2017, 5:30 pm

    • Kate January 17, 2018, 5:31 pm

      you might want to try level 2 so you can learn vault and bars.

  • Cameron October 3, 2017, 11:38 pm

    Hi. I’m a level 2 but I can do everything except my mill circle. I can even do some of the level 3 stuff. Is it possible that I could advance to level 3 before my meet?

    Hi. I’m a level 2 but I can do everything except my mill circle. I can even do some of the level 3 stuff. Is it possible that I could advance to level 3 before my meet? I feel like a preschool class on floor (I can do most of the level 4 stuff on it). Please respond

    • Banana October 16, 2019, 12:29 pm

      I am a Gymnast but I go to a non-competitive gym so I don’t know much about this. But I am on an Acrobatic Show team and I know the feeling of being left behind. I have a lot of really strong and good skills but because I’m too tall they moved me to intermediate to be a base, but the coaches kid who is bigger than me by like 3 inches is on the advanced team. It sucks to feel like the standard held to you is bigger than everyone else’s. But I know that when the coaches kid cant do any of the things they ask her to because she can’t control her body in the air and the base can’t lift her up I will be moving up to join the advanced team as a base and she will be moving down to learn how to base. Keep working hard at that meet show those judges (and your coaches) how strong you are. Have fun, be focused and I bet you they will move you up in a month or a week.

  • Sapphire November 30, 2017, 3:11 am

    I need my back extension roll. any ideas on how to help

  • Kate January 14, 2018, 3:09 pm

    I’m Kate and i’m 10. I’m level 4 but I feel like other kids my age are ahead of me. My coach say I’m where I should be but I don’t think so.

    • Sarah February 7, 2018, 1:40 pm

      Hi!!! Most people that are younger and more advanced started when they were super young! Also they most likely had special training…. Keep doing what you’re doing and you’ll advance!!!

  • justine February 15, 2018, 1:52 pm

    can i skip level 3 (without competing) and go to level 4?

  • Annabelle February 24, 2018, 4:25 pm

    I’m a level 3-ish and I really REALLY need to get to level 6 in a year for personal reasons. Does anyone have any tips for advancing quickly?

  • Bri February 28, 2018, 8:06 pm

    I am 13 and I have been doing self taught tumbling for like my whole life. I can do a Back and front walkover, cartwheel, back tuck, I’m a dancer but I really want to become a gymnast. Is it ever too late to join gymnastics?

    • Liz March 3, 2018, 1:07 pm

      It is never too late to start gymnastics! But, have realistic goals and think about the gym you decide to go to… if you’d still like a chance at competing internationally at the elite level you’re going to have to work very very hard and a good gym can help with that!

  • Lexi March 24, 2018, 8:38 pm

    Can a gymnast be in xcel and switch to compulsory levels? Also can you skip level four and go straight to five, if so what/ how would you do so?

    • Olivia July 22, 2020, 11:11 pm

      I did Xcel Silver and switched to Level 4 and then went back to Xcel Silver. So, you can switch between the two.

  • Melinda Puser April 2, 2018, 4:42 pm

    MY daughter is 7 years old and has skills for level 5-6! Can she skip level 4 once she has competed in one meet scoring enough for state??

    • Lexi April 2, 2018, 7:46 pm

      No, a gymnast MUST compete a whole season at the least, of level four gymnastics before level five. But once in level five, they will compete one sanctioned meet And if get a 33 AA or higher they atamaticlly become a level six after that one meet.

      • Reni July 17, 2020, 2:37 am

        No you only have to compete 1 meet at Level 4.

  • Grace April 5, 2018, 8:23 pm

    Hey, I am 13, and I want to start gymnastics, and can do a front handspring, front walkover and more. But not a back handspring. Is it too late to start? I am afriaid I will embarrass myself.

    • Hazel and Katie October 7, 2018, 10:51 am

      Hi Maria, the only tip you can really give for backhandsprings is to just go for it. It is going to seem scary at first but we promise that once you’ve done it once, you’ll have the confidence. Just believe in yourself. As long as you can do 5 press-ups, your arms won’t collapse so don’t worry about going backwards and falling. If this doesn’t work and you don’t have self confidence then you can always stack up pillows beneath your head and slowly remove them until there are none left.

      You should tell your coaches how you feel and how badly you want to compete to help them understand it from your point of view. Show your coaches that you can do everything amd prove yourself to them.

  • Maddy June 10, 2018, 12:06 pm

    Hey, I have been doing gymnastics since I was 7 years old I did rec classes till I was 11 witch this year I just joined team. They put me in level 3 I have gotten all my level 3 skills and I have all my level 4 skils except a kip and a squat on I really want to at least get to work with the 4s because I’m older then everyone on my team and I get really embarrassed so if u have any advice let me know!

  • Annie July 26, 2018, 4:36 pm

    Okay soo… I am turning 11 and right now I am at a pre-team at my gym. We don’t compete yet and I really want to. I was looking into another gym. At that gym, I could move up to a Xcel Gold. But, at my gym, I really like my coach. What should I do? Also, I am working on a back handspring. This would be in about a year… just wondering. PLEASE RESPOND!

    • gymnasticshq April 3, 2019, 4:23 pm

      Hi Christy, You would not be considered a level 3 until you can get all the required level 3 skills on bars. Definitely talk to your coach to figure out what level you should be in.

I’ve been thinking about trying out for competitive, but I’m not sure if I’m ready because I can’t do some of the level 3 and 4 skill requirements, and I also think it’s a bit embarrassing to tryout since I’m 13. I’ve seen kids tryout for competitive and all look like they are ages 7-10. I really love the sport and I can’t imagine myself quitting, so why not tryout now before I’m too old? Please help, I’m really confused!!!

  • Maria October 3, 2018, 12:11 am

    Im a 11 year old gymnast who’s got everything that I need for level 2 gymnastics. I am in recreational gymnastics but I want to move up to competition BADLY. My coaches just don’t see that I have got the required skills to make it to level two competition. Everything on the checklist has been ticked off. Please help me because I really want it badly and don’t know what to do. Also, how do you get over the fear of back handsprings? However much I try I am too scared to fall back.
    Thank you.

    I’m almost 12, and I started gymnastics when I was 3 but then stopped for 5 years (because of a move). I started back again when I was 8 and I have been going, but recently I stopped going (I really don’t know why). Its been about 3 months since I’ve gone back to the gym, but I can still do most of my skills. Is that bad, that I’m not going to gymnastics?

    Also, I have been in recreational gymnastics. At the age of 12… Is that bad?

    • gymnasticshq April 3, 2019, 4:21 pm

      Hi Gracie, it all depends on your goals. If you love gymnastics and want to do recreational gymnastics because it’s fun then you should do it.

    I will be 13 by the next try out season but I have never competed before. I have most of the level 4 skills except the round off bhs and I am SO CLOSE to a kip, but I am afraid that I will be uncomfortable because I will be older and taller than everyone else

    • gymnasticshq April 3, 2019, 4:20 pm

      Hi! There are many gymnasts who are older and taller than other gymnasts in their level. If you love gymnastics then you should pursue it.

    What is the requirement for level 4 splits in floor routine? (Specifically when they are turning out of the splits) I am thinking that she is getting a deduction for almost being down, but then when she turns her butt comes off the floor just a little.

  • Emily July 10, 2020, 8:31 pm

    Hi, I’m 11 and I have all my level 4 requirements and almost all level 5 skills too. Do I have to stay in level 4 for two years? Or can I move on to level 5 after a year?

    Can anyone find a good website that shows level 3 and 4 gymnastics requirements in Australia??? The USA ones seem way harder than what I have to do in level 4 here in Aus?

    Hello. I was a YMCA member. First I got my Gymnastics achievement Award at about age 9
    I could do front and back walkovers, roundoffs, side and front splits, Balance beam cartwheel, back walkover, side splits, somersault, turning handstand.. And other things on the floor I cannot remember. On the uneven bars I could swing down and grab lower bar, turn around and swing back up to the taller bar and grab by my knees, adjust up to my waist and circle around the bar. What level would I have been.

  • Anonymous February 10, 2021, 1:56 pm

    My 9 yr old granddaughter is in her 2nd yearv L4, she was 1st place AA last year but with several injuries & lockdown since last year her move to L 5 didn’t work out. She has had a hard time this year but did recieve a 34.5 at one meet. Her coaches are putting her in XL without any conference with her parents, she has her skills for L4 & a few of L5 but there were only 4 meets this year. Can we make the coaches keep her in L4 , there are several others that are in their 3rd year at that level, so she can point out at the next scheduled meet. Can she survive a move if she gets a 34AA or hight at a reginal meet coming up. Thanks from OHIO

  • Kate May 12, 2021, 5:40 pm

    Ok so if you can do everything on beam, floor, and the one vault move but can’t do any on the bar and your coach won’t help you what do you do i have a pull up bar at my house but I have a hard time training on that thing I flip it over please help

  • Ella May 26, 2021, 1:59 pm

    What are skills you need to get to level 8

  • sadie July 28, 2021, 5:10 pm

    Hi! I’m an Xcel Silver gymnast, thinking about possibly switching to JO soon. I can do all of the skills except a glide kip (which I’m really close to and I’ve done one before) and a longhang kip (which I’ve never tried), and I’m very close to a front handspring on vault and back extension roll on floor. I was wondering if I would be level 3 or 4 if I switched to JO. I have all the level 3 skills. Also does anyone have any tips on kips? I can get almost to front support but then fall out of it, I don’t have enough momentum to get all the way up.
