Mikan Drill Progressions: What is your kids skill level RIGHT NOW?

The Mikan Drill is regarded as the game’s most important skill drill. Identify where your son/daughter is in this progression to determine their level of skill.  This is a college player (over 200X attending Basics) executing both the Mikan and Reverse Mikan correctly.
