WOMENS ARTISTIC PROGRAM - JUNIOR OLYMPIC 

As of July 1, 2015, Gymnastics Canada adopted the Junior Olympic Program that was developed in the USA. The JO Program was developed with the belief that all athletes, regardless of their potential, must have a solid foundation of basic skills in order to advance safely. The program allows gymnasts to advance at her own pace. It is divided into 3 major segments: Developmental, Compulsory and Optional.

A. Developmental - Levels 1-2

Gymnasts compete compulsory routines to develop skills progressively. They compete for a score, receiving gold for a score of 9.0 & up, silver - 8.0 & up and bronze for 7.0 & below. Focus is on participation and personal bests. Maturity, Commitment & Dedication are major factors in determining how fast a gymnast will advance.

B. Compulsory - Levels 3-5

Compulsory routines are a pre-choreographed series of skills that each competitor must perform. The philosophy of these routines is for the athlete to practice towards perfection of these basics. The athletes are divided into age groups at competitions.

C. Optional - Levels 6-10

Gymnasts compete optional routines on each event, The Federation of International Gymnastics (FIG) produces the rules and guidelines for these routines. The book "Code of Points" dictates what each routine must contain (composition), the value of what is done (difficulty), and how to evaluate how well it is done (execution).
