Xcel is a program for gymnasts to compete against other gyms on the Western Slope. It is less intensive than the USAG Junior Olympic (J.O) Program and requires a smaller commitment of time, travel, and funding. The levels in Xcel are Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond. The Bronze and Silver levels are closely related to USAG J.O. level 3 in skill requirements.
Enrolling your gymnast in Xcel does not mean they will not be able to compete USAG J.O. in the future if they continue to progress in their competitive gymnastics. We will continue to do our best to ensure your child gets the best coaching possible and is learning challenging skills. However, Xcel will allow them to compete whether or not they have all the skills needed for their level. A routine in Xcel can be changed and modified to help your child perform to the best of their abilities.
Practices are Tuesday and Thursday from 5pm to 7pm. We will require each gymnast to commit to both practices a week. The Xcel meets start in March and the state meet concludes the season in June. Gymnasts will continue to train year-round and are highly encouraged to attend camp during the summer to learn routines. Colorado West Gymnastics participates in 3-4 meets per season.
Fees Required for Xcel Participation-
Tuition (2 practices/week- 2 hours each)-$165 Every 4 Week Session
USAG Introductory Athletic Membership-$25 Yearly
Leotard for Competition- < $50 One Time
Meet Fees- < $100 Per Meet

*To become an Xcel gymnast, USAG requires the gymnast to register as a Introductory Athletic Member. This is not the same membership required to compete in the USAG J.O. Program and it is significantly less expensive.
*Before the competitive season starts we will order a matching tank leo for each gymnast. This fee is not included in the tuition.
