This level is a transitional level for gymnasts who struggle with some of the requirements/skills of the Development Program. One of the main purposes of this level is to keep gymnasts included in the great sport of gymnastics and all the great things this sport can offer such as confidence, physical fitness, and discipline. XCEL has different tiers. We offer, Silver, Gold, Platinum & Diamond, with a gymnast mobilizing through as she learns more skills. XCEL Gymnasts will compete in four YMCA League Meets plus League Championships in March and YMCA State Championship in April if they qualify. Platinum and Diamond will attend Nationals, if they qualify for the National Event.
