Raleigh School of Gymnastics is proud to have one of the top USAG programs in the State of North Carolina! There are 10 competitive levels in the USAG program. There are Levels 1- 5, which are Compulsory levels that require all gymnasts to perform the same routine, and are judged according to a model of perfect execution and presentation. Level 6 has Compulsory Elements that must be performed, however the Coaches determine Choreography of the routines. Levels 7, 8, 9, 10 and Elite are Optional levels, in which gymnasts perform routines based on difficulty, execution and composition. We also participate in the USAG XCEL program as a bridge between levels 5 and 7. Each level in the J. O. Program has its own rules regarding age and minimum standards for mobility. In addition to a minimum entry age, there are also various age divisions within a level.
