XCEL is an alternative USAG sanctioned competitive program offering an accessible, yet challenging level of competition – with less time and financial commitment than the Junior Olympic program. XCEL team members work on progressively difficult gymnastics skills within the levels of Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond, while they develop strength and confidence; challenging themselves by competing within a local region against XCEL teams from other gyms. The goal of XCEL is to provide gymnasts of varying abilities and commitment levels the opportunity for a rewarding competitive gymnastics experience.
