Competitive Program

Program Description

Any gymnast who wishes to participate in competitions must be part of the RhythMix Team. Being on the competitive team is strictly optional and is by invitational only. Of course being on the team carries additional responsibilities, costs and commitment, but it also brings lots of rewards including, but not limited to, the excitement of competition, fun being around your friends, goal achievement and self-confidence.  

Gymnasts are placed in competitive levels according to age, skill, interest, and commitment. Progression to the next competitive level is at the discretion of their coaches. RhythMix coaches are committed to determining the best level for each gymnast at each stage of her development in the sport. The ultimate goal of RhythMix coaches is for each gymnast to reach her full potential in rhythmic and to love and enjoy the sport for a lifetime. 

Level 3 is the beginner competitive level. The goals of the Level 3 program are to focus attention on skill development, not the competition score. Level 3 gymnasts compete with two of the rhythmic apparatuses in addition to the floor (free hand) exercise. Level 3 gymnasts compete with up to four gymnasts performing at one time. The routines may be compulsory or optional, but each club must have the same routines. Level 3 gymnasts compete at local and invitational meets.

Level 4 is the second competitive level of rhythmic gymnastics and the first competitive level of competing at State and Regional Championships. Level 4 gymnasts compete with two of the rhythmic apparatuses in addition to the floor (free hand) exercise. Level 4 gymnasts may compete with two gymnasts performing at one time. The routines may be compulsory or optional but each club must have the same routines.

Level 5 is the most advanced compulsory level.
