Xcel Team

Ages 6+

As of September 2020, Gymnastics BC adopted the USAG Xcel Competitive program to replace the previously offered Interclub Performance Plus and Performance Challenge categories. This program acts as a bridge between the Gymnastics For All Interclub Performance and Women's Artistic Gymnastics CCP Competitive programs.

The Xcel program is an alternative competitive program offering flexibility to coaches and gymnasts with less strict skill requirements compared to the traditional CCP competitive program. This allows gymnasts the opportunity for a competitive experience with less training hours making it perfect for the multi-sport athlete. It's goal is to provide gymnasts of varying abilities and commitment levels with the opportunity for a rewarding gymnastics experience.

The Xcel Competitive program is geared towards gymnasts that want to take their skills, training and commitment past the level of recreational gymnastics without the time commitment or strict skill requirements of the CCP Competitive Program. 

Gymnasts ages 6 and up have the opportunity to be a part of a team, learn and master routines and have the chance to attend competitions.

In the 2020/2021 Inaugural season, the first three divisions of the Xcel program was adopted; bronze, silver and gold. Additional levels (Platinum & Diamond) are expected to be added soon.

Gymnasts in the Bronze and Silver groups will learn routines set by their group on each apparatus and gymnasts in the Gold group will receive personalized routines.

At competitions girls will be grouped by division and ranked based on their score with 1st-3rd receiving medals and 4th-10th (based on number of athletes per award category) receiving ribbons. In divisions with a large number of participants, athletes will be split based on birth years.
