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. The program allows a wide choice of skills to meet requirements so that selection may be 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.
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 have the opportunity to compete at the Xcel Championships.
