XCEL Team Levels

There are 5 levels to the USAG Xcel Program. The Xcel Program is designed to offer a broad-based, affordable competitive experience outside the traditional Jr. Olympic Program. All routines in this program are optional routines. The Bronze, Silver, and Gold levels will choreograph their routines for Bar, Beam, Floor, and Vault based on USAG or KC League rules, but the Platinum and Diamond levels will create their own routines. Each level has a competition and practice leotard, warmups, and a bag for the athletes.
