XCEL is is a modified version of USA Gymnastics (the governing organization for competitive level gymnastics) for gymnasts who wish to continue improving in our program. The XCEL Team is an alternative to our Girls Competitive Team to accommodate different goals and schedules for each individual athlete.
All levels of XCEL (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond) are customized to meet and fit the abilities of each individual gymnast. The gymnast is allowed to express her creativity by choosing the skills she likes best and creating her own routines on each event! The XCEL program is less intensive than the Girls Competitive Team, and while there are a handful of in-state meets offered for XCEL gymnasts, Old Pueblo’s XCEL athletes will be given the choice whether or not to compete. We have had great success getting XCEL off the ground this first session, but we would love to build our XCEL team even bigger!
