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 broad-based, rewarding, ongoing, affordable gymnastics experience outside the traditional USAG Jr. Olympic Program.
AGA’s Xcel program is designed to provide a positive, rewarding experience based on individual and team accomplishment. Our Xcel program seeks to give all athletes an opportunity to compete in a casual competition for awards, without a commitment to long practice hours while still being able to reach their full potential.
There are six levels in the AGA's USAG Xcel Program; Pre-Team, Bronze (Entry Competitive Level), Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond (Highest Level). AGA’s Xcel Program is not meant to be a path to the Junior Olympic program, rather it is an entity of its' own. Xcel gymnasts have the opportunity to work their way up the levels within the Xcel program, and is a fantastic program for that gymnast whose goal may be to eventually compete in Colorado High School gymnastics.
