Definition: Compulsories

Compulsories: A routine in which the elements are pre-determined by an organization such as USA Gymnastics (or other national federation) or by the FIG. Routines that are specified and designated by the gymnastics federation for certain levels of gymnasts and which all gymnasts at that level must perform. Compulsory routines are no longer a part of international Elite competitions.  They are used in the U.S. at the beginning levels of gymnastics competition (Level 4, Level 5 and Level 6) and as a part of Elite testing.  Also called mandatory routines.
