The Xcel Program is designed to offer a broad-based affordable competitive experience outside the traditional Jr. Olympic Program to attract and retain a diverse group of athletes.
Xcel Levels differ from J.O. levels because they have more flexible requirements. A gymnast can be working upper level skills on one event and competing at a lower level on all the other events. There is also an option to specialize in one event.
Silver (comparable to J.O. levels 2-4)
Gold (comparable to J.O. levels 4-6)
Platinum (comparable to J.O. levels 5-7)
Diamond (comparable to J.O. levels 6-9)
Gymnasts compete at local invitationals, State championships with a qualifying score (varies yearly), and may qualify to Regional Championships from the State Competition. Only Gold and above Bay Island gymnasts participate at Regional Competitions.
