The Xcel Team is an alternative optional USAG team program that meets the needs of many gymnasts by providing a team atmosphere and competition experience without the strenuous time and financial commitment of the more rigorous JO program. The optional nature of the program also allows gymnasts to develop original routines that fit their own talents and personalities. Placement in the Xcel team program is by invitation based on coaches recommendation for athletes that have the required strength, flexibility, skill and work ethic. Xcel has 5 divisions; Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond.

All gymnasts new to team will start at the Bronze level which is located at the Issaquah Team Gym. Bronze gymnasts are handpicked from our Aerials/Springers Class program through coaches recommendations or some who are transitioning from the J.O level 2 team that meet the Bronze skill requirements. Xcel Bronze practices 1.5 hours 2x per week and attends mandatory gymnastics meets and require competitive fees, team apparel, and family volunteer time.
