TEAM TRYOUTS

New Teams Start June 12th, 2023

Our team is a high performance gymnastics team. We believe that hard work is fun. Our athletes start at Xcel Silver (instead of Level 2/3) as it allows for a less intense introduction to competition. Our athletes then progress into Developmental (formerly JO) Level 4 and then progress to Levels 6 – 10.

Our company mission is to help create happy… healthy… confident young leaders through the world of sport. Our competitive team goal is to provide quality gymnastics training that gives athletes what they need for upper level success. We define upper level as Levels 9 / 10 and beyond.
