Xcel Divisions – Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond
Xcel is a USAG competitive program offering individual flexibility to coaches and gymnasts. The goal of Xcel is to allow gymnasts to build on their strengths and work at a comfortable pace to ensure a positive and rewarding gymnastics experience. Emphasizing poise, rhythm, execution, and presentation, the Xcel team is open to gymnasts who have mastered gymnastics basics on each apparatus.
The Recreational Team is for gymnasts invited to join team who are interested in advancing their gymnastics skills without competitions. The main focus is building confidence, coordination and self-esteem, while emphasizing strength, flexibility and skill attainment. The goal is for Recreational Team gymnasts to join our competitive program but it is not required.
