Xcel Team Tryots



The Gymnastics Zone is pleased to announce that there will soon be a second Xcel Competitive Team!  Response to our 10 years & up Xcel Team has been so great that we will be holding tryouts for a new team for younger gymnasts ages 6-10.

Tryouts are being held on Friday, December 14th
from 4:30-6:30pm.


Please sign up at the front desk if you would like to attend tryouts.
 

PARENT MEETING:
Parents are required to attend a brief informational meeting during the first half of testing upstairs in the Party Room beginning at 5pm.

This is a wonderful opportunity for both our Recreational and Pre-Team gymnasts who love their sport and have a competitive spirit but can't put in the longer workout hours required for the Junior Olympic Team Program.

After tryouts, gymnasts will be notified via mail of their placement.

The Xcel Team competitive season runs January through March with Championship meets held in early to mid-April.

A team sleepover will be held on December 28th to welcome all new team members!

The program gives an opportunity for:

Class students to participate in organized gymnastics events.

Those athletes who have competed in the USA Gymnastics Jr. Olympic Program and have qualified to Level 7 or above but need a more basic introduction to optional competition.

Those athletes who have competed in the USA Gymnastics Jr. Olympic Program at the Compulsory level and would like to experience a basic optional program during their "off" season while they train skills to move up in the JO Program, if they wish.

Those athletes who have either "retired" from the Jr. Olympic Program or do not wish to train or compete at Level 7 or 8.

Athletes not previously involved with USA Gymnastics to enter the program.

Watch for this exciting new program to begin in the coming months!
