Perry Juniata Gymnastics is a member of the USA Gymnastics organization. The USAG is the national governing body for gymnastics in the United States. Established in 1963, USA Gymnastics is responsible for selecting and training national teams for the Olympic Games and World Championships.
The Women's Junior Olympic Program is divided into three major segments.
- The Developmental Levels 1 through 3 may be used as a non-competitive and achievement-oriented program for use within a gym's pre-team program, or they may be used as an introductory/recreational competitive program. States may also offer State Championships for these levels.
- The second part consists of Compulsory Levels 4 and 5. Both of these levels are progressive in nature, building upon the skills required at the previous level. Competitive opportunities are provided up to and including the USA Gymnastics State Championships.
- The third segment is Optional Levels 6-10. Levels 6, 7 and 8 have difficulty restrictions, while Levels 9 and 10 have no restrictions in the skill choice.
