The USAG Xcel program began in 2013 to offer athletes more flexible rules and fewer training hours then the Developmental Program (DP). The goal of the Xcel program is to allow athletes to progress at their own pace and have fun with the sport. They have the opportunity to perform skills within their level on all four events (vault, bars, beam, floor) and create routines that demonstrate those skills. The Xcel team practices 2-3 times per week and follows all USAG guidelines.
The Xcel program has five competing levels; Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. Levels Silver through Diamond can qualify to compete at the PA State Championships. Athletes can begin competing at age 5. Our current team has an age range of 5 through 16.
