Optional
(Levels 6 – Elite) Team


Thank you for showing an interest in our Competitive Program. All American’s Competitive Team has a long standing tradition of outstanding gymnasts. Many of whom have participated in numerous State, Regional, and National qualifiers. We are honored to have many State and Regional Champions. We are very pleased with all of our competitive gymnasts, no matter what level they achieve. The time and commitment it takes for a gymnast and her family to become a competitive athlete is something to be cherished and not taken lightly. We realize the dedication of our team and hope that all of our girls know how proud we are of them!

Our Optional Program consists of gymnasts at the competitive Levels 6-Elite. These girls have progressed through the Compulsory Levels, with a complete mastery of these levels to move to the Optional Levels. Our Optional gymnasts compete December – May against girls at the State Level, Regional Level (The States of Texas, New Mexico, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming), at Westerns (west ½ of the country) and eventually at the National Level. Our Optional gymnasts workout on average 22 hours a week and train year-round for skill mastery on all events: Vault, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam and Floor Exercise. An Optional gymnast is no longer trying to master a national routine, but individual routines judged on skill mastery, artistry, and difficulty.
