The Xcel Program was created as a national program that allows gymnasts to begin competing at a lower skill level than the Junior Olympic program. As designed through USA Gymnastics: “Xcel is an alternative USA Gymnastics competitive program offering individual flexibility to coaches and gymnasts. The goal of Xcel is to provide gymnasts of varying abilities and commitment levels the opportunity for a rewarding gymnastics experience.”
The developmental team program is based on the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic Program. This Program consists of five levels, level one being the easiest and level five being the more difficult. Each level has specific skills and routines that the gymnast will be periodically tested on after being mastered.
Parent and child participate together in this movement exploration class. It is a wonderful way to introduce hand-eye coordination, motor skills and listening skills. Parents follow along with their child through age appropriate circuits that can include trampoline, low balance beam, and low bar.
THE NINJA ZONE
Children learn a combination of flips, rolls, jumps, and kicks. Strength and agility are tested through obstacle courses and various training techniques. A progressive level system evaluates and advances children on their skill and knowledge of core values as described in The Ninja Zone creed. The levels of The Ninja Zone are defined by the headband colors of White, Yellow, Green, and Blue.
