Basic IHSA Level 9 Routines

“IHSA Level 9” refers to the version of USAG JO Level 9 that the IHSA has adopted with IHSGCA modifications for high school athletes.

The following sample routines were designed to meet all Element Group requirements but with the lowest-level skills possible. These routines are just examples, but may be useful as a basic skeleton for constructing routines in the new rules.
