levels & competitive gymnastics
Woman's gymnastics is comprised of four events: Vault, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam and Floor Exercise. That is the Olympic Order and the one that we follow.
Now you know if your daughter starts her competition on bars, her next events will be beam, then floor and she will end on vault. The next time you see gymnastics on tv, pay attention.
At a meet your daughter will be given a score on each event and at the conclusion of the meet you add them all up to get her "All-Around" (AA) score.
Awards are given at the conclusion of the meet to the highest scores on each event and the All-Around.
