ABOUT XCEL PROGRAM
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 commitment levels and abilities and the opportunity for a rewarding gymnastics experience that can continue through high school and beyond. The program uses “Divisions” rather than standard “Levels”, each Division allows wide range of skill difficulty, while meeting special-requirements to construct individualized routines based on an individual athlete’s strengths. The Xcel program focuses on sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, and fun. The emphasis in the Xcel program is on correct technique, form, and performance; while allowing gymnasts to increase their skill set and skill difficulty at their own pace.
At Metropolitan, our Xcel program focuses on the Team while challenging individual athletes to maximize their individual potential. Metropolitan has a very strong program with award-winning teams and gymnasts. Our Xcel athletes have won State and Regional team and individual event championships. Athletes who qualify for Championships meets have the opportunity to compete at State, Regionals, and Xcel Championships.
