Xcel & Junior Olympic Competitive Teams
We offer two different competitive team programs. The Xcel Competitive Team is designed to allow a broader variety of gymnasts a competitive gymnastics experience. To be eligible to compete Xcel Bronze, our introductory competitive level, gymnasts must be 6 years old and be able to do a backward roll, cartwheel, round-off, and vertical handstand. All gymnasts begin competing at Xcel Bronze and progress to Level 2. After completing Level 2, gymnasts may choose to stay within the Xcel Program and advance to Xcel Silver, or they may switch into the Junior Olympic Program and compete level 3.
The Junior Olympic Team program is more competitive and is designed with long term progressive goals. Gymnasts must be tested by the Glastonbury Gymnastics Director in order to be placed on our Xcel or Junior Olympic competitive team. Our competitive team gymnasts work out between 4.5 to 8 hours per week, allowing them flexibility to participate in multiple activities.
The Glastonbury Gymnastics Club offers gymnasts the opportunity to compete at both USA Gymnastics sanctioned events as well as at YMCA Gymnastics events. We are very proud to say that we have trained local, state, regional and national champions!
