Xcel Competitive Teams

Xcel brings competitive gymnastics to gymnasts in a program that embraces all skill levels – beginner through advanced. It is a personalized competitive program starting at the first entry division.

Xcel Divisions: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond

Xcel offers two different entry divisions, Bronze and Silver, allowing coaches to place students appropriately based on their skills and gymnastics experience. In addition, there is flexibility in skills to fulfill the event requirements.

Who is Xcel for?

The Xcel program is designed to offer a broad-based, affordable competitive experience outside the traditional Jr. Olympic Program to attract and retain a diverse group of athletes.

Xcel is a great program for gymnasts that:   

  • Are a variety of levels, abilities, ages and commitment levels and want to enjoy all the benefits that gymnastics has to offer while having more flexibility than the Junior Olympic Program.
  • Have a passion for gymnastics and want to stay in involved in the sport for the long term, while not striving for the goal of being a Level 10 or elite gymnast.
  • Cannot be in the gym the number of hours that the Junior Olympic Program requires because of other activities or sports but still want to be a competitive gymnast.

 

Xcel requires an evaluation. Please contact Jaime Prince at jprince@lisgym.com

Areas of evaluation:

  • Work Ethic
  • Mental Focus
  • Attention to Detail
  • Attendance
  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Attitude
  • Ability to Perform New Skills
  • Parent Behavior

 

Xcel travel days for competitions can range from Friday- Monday. There is a chance your daughter will have to miss school, depending on what day their competition falls on. Commitment to a full season is needed to enroll in the Xcel Program.
