What Gymnastics Opportunities Are Available in Bemidji?

★★★ GYM BIN run programs:


USAG Jr. Olympic Program (JO Program) - United States Of America Gymnastics (USAG) has a Jr. Olympic Program that consists of Level 1-10. Each level progresses in skills and routines (Olympians are Elite Gymnasts which is the advancement out of Level 10.). Levels 3-10 are competitive with levels 4-10 advancement only being achieved with success at meets. Levels 3-5 are compulsory levels, meaning that there is a compulsory routine that must be done by all gymnasts at those levels. Levels 6-10 are optional levels, meaning the gymnasts create their own routines. Gymnasts range from age 7-18. The JO program is an intense, demanding competitive program for those gymnasts who wish to highly excel in gymnastics. The following are a part of the USAG JO Program:

Rising Stars (levels 1-2)
Bemidji Aerials (levels 3-10)

  USAG Xcel Program - This is a competitive program that is a USAG program but is a more relaxed, less intense program.
