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.
NSR coaches are committed to determining the best level for each gymnast at each stage of her development in the sport. A gymnast will not advance just to move her along or because others in her level have advanced. The ultimate goal of NSR coaches is for each gymnast to reach her full potential in rhythmic and to love and enjoy the sport for a lifetime.
