XCEL is an alternative USAG competitive program that offers individual flexibility to coaches and gymnasts. It is a route for athletes with varying commitment levels to get the opportunity to experience gymnastics meets with increased options for development.
The interest in this avenue of competition has grown considerably over the last few years.
There are now 5 available levels separated into Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond and Platinum divisions.
Here at IGC, we offer all female gymnasts this XCEL option as a way to showcase their skills with less of a time commitment than the Junior Olympic gymnasts. They still perform on all 4 female apparatus (vault, bars, balance beam, floor) and have a full competitive season. For more information on this program, visit the USA Gymnastics Website to learn all about it.
