All of the JAG Competition Programs are based on the USA Gymnastics Xcel and Junior Olympic Programs. Our programs and staff are committed to the positive learning environment for all of our athletes and we proudly support and follow the USA Gymnastics Safe Sport Policy.
The Xcel Program is designed to offer a broad-based, affordable competitive experience outside of the Jr. Olympic Program, in order to attract and retain a diverse group of athletes. The program gives an opportunity for athletes not previously involved with USA Gymnastics to enter a competitive program. The Xcel Program consists of 5 competitive levels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond). After their first month of participation, Xcel members are expected to make an academic years’ commitment to the program. The cost for the Xcel Program is figured into 12 installment payments covering classes from month to month.
USAG Junior Olympic Team
USAG is the governing body of the sport of gymnastics in the United States. It is the gymnastics world’s version of the NBA or NFL. Additionally, USAG is responsible for the selection of the Olympic Team and runs the Junior Olympic Program. Levels 1-2 are non-competitive levels. Levels 3-5 are compulsory levels (everyone performs the same routines on all 4 apparatus) and Levels 6-10 are optional levels (each athlete performs different routines that meet certain requirements). USAG’s Junior Olympic Program is highly demanding. Because of the levels of precision and difficulty required to execute the routines, USAG gymnasts will train between 9 (lower levels) and 25 (higher levels) hours a week.
