The Junior Olympic program was developed with the belief that all athletes, regardless of their potential, must have a solid foundation of basic skills in order to advance safely. The program allows the gymnasts to advance at their own pace, competing at more than one level in a year, if they so choose.
The Women's Junior Olympic Program is divided into three major segments:
Our program is a national USA Gymnastic program of levels that run alongside the Junior Olympic (JO) program. The Xcel program is a completely separate, alternative program that offers a flexible schedule to both coaches and gymnasts. The goal of our Xcel program is to provide gymnasts of varying abilities and commitment levels, the opportunity for a rewarding gymnastics experience.
