In the USA each *Gymnastic Sports use a similar number system to denote the level. Each level is more difficult.

In USA Men and Woman's Artistic Gymnastics, Rhythmic Gymanstics, Tumble and Trampoline Gymnastics and Acrobatic Gymnastics, The levels of gymnastics start at level 1 and go all the way to elite levels. (up to three elite levels) Levels 1-3 are typically designed for recreational and or competitive skill developmen and do not usually compete. Pre team helps you get ready for level four. Level four through six is compulsory, meaning that you all do the same routine. Level 7 through 10 are optional routines. For the Gymnastic sports that use music the lower levels all use the same music and around level seven the coach athlete get to choose the music.

Skills used in Optional Routines are selected from a manual of skills that list all skills and ranks them in difficulty. The more difficult skills have a higher point value. You make up the Optional routine to maximize the point value of the routine by selecting highest value skills the athlete can safely do and perform with least amount of mistakes possible. If music is part of the Gym sport it selected by coach/athlete.

Elite level is the highest and the rules are same across the world. This level is used in Intnerational Competitions.

Some competitive Organizations in USA for Woman's Artistic also include levels of Preparatory Optional (Prep Op) 1,2,3, bronze, silver, gold, and platinum in which you have your own routine and music.
