Gymnasts are evaluated based on their physical skills, work ethic, and mental preparedness. Within the Team Program, the athletes will learn several life skills including respect, responsibility, good sportsmanship, among others. 

Minnesota Flyers Team Program is broken down into three categories:

INTERESTED IN JOINING TEAM?

Compulsory Team

 These groups work the fundamentals and foundations of gymnastics while preparing skill development for the optional levels. We follow a structured system that supports progression, but athletes do move at their own pace through these levels. Compulsory gymnasts compete in Minnesota and North Dakota. The highlight of their season is qualifying and competing in the USAG Compulsory State Meet every December.

Compulsory levels of gymnastics include USAG levels 3-5

Optional Team 

The USAG optional levels are designed to promote athlete creativity and support strengths of the gymnast. Because of the challenging skills and physical demand of these levels, gymnasts can have a demanding practice schedule. These levels are highly rewarding and offer many opportunities for self-development. Their competitions are throughout the region and out of state. We require that athletes are performing well in their academics. 


A highlight of competing at the optional levels are qualifying for a regional meet - competing against MN, WI, ND, SD, IA, NE and MO. At levels 9 and 10, girls have the opportunity to advance to the National level and compete country-wide. 

optional levels of gymnastics include USAG LEVELS 6-10

Competitive gymnastics is considered a "high risk" contact sport. Safety is our first priority in the gym and we take this very seriously. Our head team staff are certified and trained in concussion management through Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) HEADS UP Program.
