Our Competitive Team Program requires a year-round commitment to training and competition from both gymnasts and parents. Girls who show a strong desire and physical potential to be competitive gymnasts at a Junior Olympic level are asked to join by invitation. For new competitive transfer students, please contact our program director at (650) 294 4650 to schedule an evaluation.
USAG gymnastics has divided the Junior Olympic (JO) Program into 10 levels. At Peninsula, we begin taking athletes to competitions at Level 4. The minimum age for this level of competition is 6 years old. At Levels 4-6, all athletes across the country perform the same routines on all four events (vault, bars, beam, and floor). The emphasis in these levels is to master basic skills that will enable skill development in the future and to experience the thrill of the competitive environment.
