BASIC SKILLS ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM (BSAP) Designed for boys programs with classes which meet one hour per week. The BSAP forms the foundation of the USGF Men's Program. The four levels of the BSAP prepare the gymnast to participate in the Olympic Development Program (ODP) and the Junior Olympic Competitive Program (JOCP). BSAP is a list of skills which instructors check off and date to record the progress of each gymnast. Records of each student's progress in the program are kept on skill cards and wall charts with the date the skill is successfully performed. A n awards system is designed to recognize the successful accomplishment of skills of each level with patches, chevrons and certificates. Item No. 51 52 53

OLYMPIC DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (ODP) Formerly called the Skills Testing Program, the philosophy has always been to identify the most talented and promising gymnasts in the United States. The most important goal, however, is the education and training of both the gymnast and the coach while they are involved in the program and in any camps to which they might qualify. Finally the program is designed to place gymnasts on the various national teams for the purpose of international development and competition. 60 61 62 63

The objectives of this program are to establish a shorter time period of competition and better evaluation of the lower level athletes. Additionally to make transition from one class to abother easier, to de-emphasize winning and stress individual achievement at the lower classes, YET allow the top athletes to rise to their highest level of achievement, to reduce the required number of skills and streamline the evaluation process.
