Gymnasts for this class are selected to prepare for our Xcel Gymnastics Team. Gymnasts in Xcel Bronze will find an increase in strength and flexibility work, as well as perfecting the basic skills essential for competitive gymnastics. From January through April, Bronze gymnasts have the option to compete. Meets for this level are fun and a great way to introduce gymnasts to competition.
Classes are two hours in length. Gymnasts have the opportunity to attend one or two classes per week.
Xcel is part of the USA Gymnastics program. The majority of our competitive gymnasts start with the Xcel Bronze program and then progress to either Xcel Silver or move to our Junior Olympic (JO) Team. Xcel is an option offered to those gymnasts who have the potential to be competitive gymnasts, but who may not be able to make the financial or time commitment required for the JO team. Our Xcel Team has the opportunity to work with our highly trained coaches, who inspire these young ladies to perform at their highest potential, while enhancing their self esteem, strength, coordination and allowing them to build lifelong friendships. Twisters competes Bronze through Diamond levels.
Classes vary in length with level competing. Most gymnasts attend two or more classes per week.
