USA Gymnastics believes that every boy should have the opportunity to “play the game” and be part of a team regardless of skill level. Xcel for boys is the next step for a male gymnast in the earlier stages of learning gymnastics who is interested in competing in team competition at a recreational level.

Who is Xcel for?
The Xcel Program is designed to offer a broad-based, affordable competitive experience outside the traditional Jr. Olympic Program to attract and retain a diverse group of athletes.

Xcel is a great program for gymnasts that:

  • Are at a variety of levels, abilities, age and commitment levels and want to enjoy the benefits gymnastics has to offer while having more flexibility than the Junior Olympic Program.
  • Have a passion for gymnastics and want to stay involved in the sport for the long term, but do not necessarily have national or elite level competitive goals.
  • Are busy with other activities or sports but still want to be active in the sport as a competitive or non-competitive gymnast.
