XCEL (schedule)

Xcel began in the state of Colorado in 1993 and was modeled after the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic program. Xcel provides a great alternative to the Junior Olympic (JO) program by allowing gymnasts the opportunity to compete and progress their skills in a low pressure environment, but without the heavy time and financial commitments required by JO.  Xcel athletes also have the opportunity to compete at an earlier level and are permitted to compete optional skills at an earlier level, thereby giving them a greater opportunity for individual success and achievement. It is also a great stepping stone to high school gymnastics.

GIRLS JUNIOR OLYMPIC (schedule)
From Xcel, girls can enter into the USAG Junior Olympic program.  USAG (United States of America Gymnastics), is the governing body for gymnastics in the US, and is responsible for creating and maintaining the rules and safety regulations of the sport.  The competitive Junior Olympic program is comprised of levels 4-10. Levels 4 and 5 are compulsory levels, in which each of the athletes within a level competes the same routine and they are scored on the proficiency of the skills demonstrated in the routine.  Levels 6-10 are optional levels, where athletes create their own routines using a set of required skills, each with their own point value.  Compulsory levels compete in the fall, while optional levels compete in the spring.  From the USAG Junior Olympic program, athletes can continue into the ELITE program and even compete gymnastics in college.

PRE-TEAM BOYS (schedule)

Boys interested in competitive gymnastics at Xtreme Altitude can try out for the boys’ team straight out of the recreational gymnastics program, or after being selected to participate in the Pre-Team program.  Pre-team boys attend class two times per week for 1 hour each time.  Pre-Team athletes are selected by the coaching staff at random times during the year based on skill.  Tryouts for the boys’ competitive team are in May of each year.

BOYS USAG (schedule)

Boys can move into the USAG Junior Olympic program straight out of our Boys Gym Adventures program.  USAG (United States of America Gymnastics), is the governing body for gymnastics in the US, and is responsible for creating and maintaining the rules and safety regulations of the sport.  The competitive Junior Olympic program is comprised of levels 4-10. Levels 4, 5, 6 and 7 are compulsory levels, in which each of the athletes within a level competes the same routine and they are scored on the proficiency of the skills demonstrated in the routine.  Levels 8, 9 and 10 are optional levels, where athletes create their own routines using a set of required skills, each with their own point value.
