Gleasons aims to help each gymnast reach her goals through hard work and the pursuit of excellence and to use her gymnastics experiences in preperation for life after the sport.
Gleasons team gymnasts participate in the Junior Olympic Program, which was developed by USA Gymnastics (the governing body for gymnastics in the United States).
Pre-Teams: Petite Elites and Training Team are the pre-competitive teams here at Gleason's Maple Grove. Girls are selected for both levels from our Preschool and Recreational Classes based on specific ability tests. In these pre-teams the girls will be working on the USA Gymnastics Levels 1-3 guidelines to prepare for Level 3 which is the first level in which they will enter competition.
Compulsory Levels (3-5): All gymnasts across the state perform the same routines on each event (routines differ based on compulsory level).
Optional Levels (7-10): All gymnasts across the state are subjected to meeting the same set of requirements within the routine. The construction/choreography of each routine on any event is up to the discretion of the coach, so long as all skill/difficulty requirements are met.
