Xcel Prep: Ages 5 and up
Gymnasts for this class are selected to prepare for our Xcel Gymnastics Team. Gymnasts in Xcel Prep will find an increase in strength and flexibility work, as well as perfecting the basic skills essential for competitive gymnastics. From January through April, four Corridor Classic meets are offered to these gymnasts. Corridor Meets are held with other local gyms and are designed to be a fun way to introduce gymnasts to the competitive side of the sport.
Classes are two hours in length. Gymnasts have the opportunity to attend one or two classes per week.
Xcel Team: Ages 5 and up
Xcel Team members are selected in the spring from the Xcel Prep class. Xcel is part of the USA Gymnastics program. The majority of our competitive gymnasts start with the Xcel Bronze program and then progress to either Xcel Silver or move to our Junior Olympic (JO) Team. Xcel is an option offered to those gymnasts who have the potential to be competitive gymnasts, but who may not be able to make the financial or time commitment required for the JO team. Our Xcel Team has the opportunity to work with our highly trained coaches, who inspire these young ladies to perform at their highest potential, while enhancing their self esteem, strength, coordination and allowing them to build lifelong friendships. Twisters competes Bronze through Diamond levels.
Classes vary in length with level competing. Most gymnasts attend two or more classes per week.
