Xcel Gymnastics

The USA Gymnastics Xcel program was developed as an alternative competitive program offering individual flexibility to coaches and gymnasts. The goal of Xcel is to provide gymnasts of varying abilities and commitment levels the opportunity for a rewarding gymnastics experience. The program allows a wide choice in skills to meet requirements so selection may be based on an individual athlete’s strengths.

The focus of the Xcel program is sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, and fun. The emphasis in the Xcel program is on correct technique, form, and performance.

Let It Shine trains the following Xcel divisions: Xcel Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. 

Team Director: Megan Slowey

Who is Xcel for?

Xcel is a great program for gymnasts of all levels, abilities and ages who want to enjoy all the benefits that competitive gymnastics has to offer while have more flexibility and fewer hours than the commitment required by our Junior Olympic Program.   

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.

Areas of evaluation:
