We are excited to be starting an Xcel program here at Northpointe Gymnastics. The Xcel program is a competitive program that is run by USA Gymnastics. There are five divisions in the Xcel program: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. All of the Xcel divisions have optional rules, meaning each gymnast can compete routines made specifically for them. Whereas, in compulsory levels (levels 1-5), the routine is already choreographed and every gymnast must perform the routine exactly the same.
The Xcel program is ideal for not only entry-level gymnasts, but also older gymnasts who are looking for a fun way to stay in shape and compete in the sport with less demands on their time and bodies. And since high school gymnastics programs sometimes use similar rules as Xcel, it can be a way to prepare gymnasts to try out for a high school gymnastics team.
Gymnasts compete individual, personalized routines. Most athletes would rather compete routines that are customized to their age, strengths, taste and personality.
The Xcel Program can be less of a time commitment. The compulsory program can be time intensive, with its routines that require gymnasts to learn an exact set of skills regardless of their strengths. Gymnasts can spend less time in the gym but still be able to learn skills that allow them to compete.
Entry fees are capped at Xcel meets to make it more affordable.
