The compulsory gymnastic teams at Discovery Gymnastics are gearing up for the start of their 2011 season.

The Columbia based school's compulsory teams are required to perform a routine composed for their level by USGA (United States Gymnastics Association) on floor, bars, beam and vault.

At the beginning of the year, the gymnasts begin working on the skills required for the routines and spend several hours a week in the gym perfecting the routines for competition.

This year the team will travel to seven meets, including Murfreesboro, Gallatin, Sevierville, and Nashville, as well as Huntsville Alabama.

There will be 18 girls competing for Discovery in levels 3 through 6.
