FX - standing back handspring, front flip, back extension roll to handstand (straight arms), RO BHS back tuck, front handspring step out front handspring, and a side straddle leap. everything else you should have from level 5. BB - back walk over or back extension, 180 degree leap and split jump, handstand dismount, full turn. UB - clear hip and cast above 45 degrees ( i believe), baby giant, fly away. everything else you should have from level 5. V - front handspring. I believe that's it
There are no specific skills required to compete at Level 9 - it is an "optional" level, because each gymnast has the option of using the skills that work best for her to fulfill the special requirements for each event. Each routine is also required to have elements which fulfill the Value Part requirements, which are 3As, 4Bs, and 1 C. They are allowed to do 1 D or E value part per routine; any more than 1 incurs a .5 deduction per each unallowable element.
Vault - Level 9 has specific vaults which are allowed at this level, and which have various start values. usa-gymnastics.org has the Level 9 Vault table, which lists the allowable vaults, and their start values
Uneven Bars - the special requirements for Level 9 are:
1. 2 bar changes
2. 1 flight element, minimum B value part
3. 1 different flight element OR 1 element with LA (long axis) turn, each minimum C
4. Salto/hecht dismount, minimum B
Balance Beam - Special Requirements for Level 9 are:
1. Acro series consisting of 2 flight elements
2. Leap or jump with 180 degree split
3. 360 degree turn
4. Dismount, minimum B
Floor Exercise - Special Requirements for Level 9 are:
1. Acro series with 2 saltos or 2 directly connected saltos
2. 3 Different saltos within the routine
3. Dance Passage - minimum 2 different leaps jumps or hops directly or indirectly connected with at least 1 leap (one foot takeoff) which requires 180 degree split.
4. Minimum B salto as the last salto, or in the last acro series of the routine.
Level 9's have a start value of a 9.7 - they can earn .3 in bonus thru connecting certain elements.
If you can do it, go ahead. but its not required.
If you go to work in a good mood and have all the required skills and friends then you will keep getting promoted until you reach level 9.

Yes gymnastics is for all ages. There are classes from mommy and me classes to adult classes in certain gymnastics centers. I started gymnastics at a late age for gymnastics. I started at the age of 10 ( I'm 15 now) and I'm now doing competitive gymnastics. But since I did start gymnastics later I'm not at a very high competitive level. My coaches told me if I did start gymnastics at an earlier age like everyone else I could've been at least a level 9 or maybe even 10! But since I do other stuff like cheerleading at school and gymnastics and I'm in high school now I do prep op gymnastics which is gymnastics which is not as committed as being an optional gymnast. Gymnastics is good to start young since your body is really flexible and your not afraid to try new skills and to build motor skills. If you started late like me its also good because you work on flexibility, strength, endurance, and it helps you get disciplined and stay focus at school. Almost every gymnasts get straight As. Adult classes are also good to start since adults also need exercise and they work on flexibility and strength to work on bone strength and endurance. So yes gymnastics is for all ages, and you have plenty of choices to choose from like mommy and me, adult, rec team, competitive team, and prep op levels. Hope this helped. Jean
Elizabeth Anne Okino started gymnastics at the age of nine (9).
You can't de-level your skills in any way, only level them up. You can however avoid leveling that skill completely by all means.
