Individual Event Specialist Rules:
The Regional and National Staff have made a distinction between a specialist and an all-arounder competing only one, two, or three events (generally, but not always due to an injury).
A specialist must attain a qualifying score on the event(s) and declare specialist status before competing her first event at state. Specific qualifying scores are:
Level 7 & 8 to State: 8.0 minimum on qualifying event
Level 9 & 10 to State: 8.5 minimum on qualifying event
Level 9 & 10 to Regionals: 9.0 minimum on qualifying event
If a gymnast enters the championship as an all-arounder, she cannot compete as a specialist at regionals. A gymnast that registers for state in the all-around, but is unable to compete all four events at state, may touch out the remaining events and petition entry into regionals as an all-arounder only. This effectively eliminates the possibility of scratching the last event at state for the sole purpose of qualifying as a specialist at regionals.
Mobility requirement for a specialist is 8.5/event for all levels.

Level 3 Floor Music Clarification
The re-mixed version of the Level 3 violin music is now available on iTunes for $0.99. Please be aware this re-mix is NOT required to purchase. It is the same song you received with your original purchase. The intensity of the violin note that occurs during the handstand bridge kick over has been reduced. You may continue to use the original version with no repercussions. iTunes has replaced the original version with the re-mixed version. It can be found on iTunes listed as Level 3 violin. Hopefully, this clears up some of the confusion.
Thank you, USA Gymnastics
