Competitve Gymanstics

At United Gymstars and Cheer, we are proud to have competitive teams comprised of dedicated gymnasts who possess an unparalleled mindset and a drive for excellence. Our teams work hard, have fun, and achieve greatness both as individual athletes and as a cohesive unit. While our competitive teams are invitation-based, we encourage anyone who has an interest in competition to reach out to their coach for more information.
 

Our competitive teams are designed for gymnasts who are passionate about taking their skills and performance to the next level. Through rigorous training, personalized coaching, and participation in competitions, our teams provide an avenue for gymnasts to showcase their talent and strive for excellence in the sport they love.
 

PRE-TEAM

The Pre-Team Program serves as an important stepping stone for young gymnasts who aspire to compete in gymnastics. It offers a structured training environment that prepares them for the more rigorous demands of competitive gymnastics while fostering their love for the sport and developing key foundational skills.

Our pre-team gymansts are often found in our recreational program as coaches see talent within their students. 

If your child is intereted in competeing one day and has a strong desire to commit to training, please reach out to your coach or see the front desk for evaluation. 

XCEL TEAM

The USAG Xcel Program is a competitive gymnastics program offered by USA Gymnastics (USAG), the national governing body for gymnastics in the United States. The Xcel Program was introduced as an alternative to the traditional Development Program and is designed to provide gymnasts with a flexible and inclusive pathway to competitive gymnastics.

The Xcel Program offers a range of competitive levels, allowing gymnasts of different ages and abilities to participate. The program consists of six levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Sapphire. Each level has specific skill and routine requirements that increase in difficulty as gymnasts progress through the levels.

One of the primary advantages of the Xcel Program is its flexibility. It allows gymnasts to enter the program at any age and level, based on their current skills and abilities. This means that gymnasts who start gymnastics later or those who want a less intense and more individualized approach can still participate in competitive gymnastics.

COMPULSORY TEAM

The USAG Compulsory Program is a standardized competitive gymnastics program offered by USA Gymnastics (USAG), the national governing body for gymnastics in the United States. The Compulsory Program serves as the foundation for gymnasts, providing a structured progression of skills and routines.

The Compulsory Program consists of a set of routines and skills that gymnasts must perform at each level. These routines are designed to assess the gymnast's technical proficiency, strength, flexibility, and execution of fundamental gymnastics skills. The program ensures that gymnasts develop a solid foundation of skills before moving on to more advanced levels.

The Compulsory Program is divided into several levels, including Levels 1 through 5 for women's artistic gymnastics. Each level has specific requirements for skills, routines, and difficulty. Gymnasts progress through the levels by mastering the skills and routines of each level, often competing at local, state, regional, and national levels.

OPTIONAL TEAM

The Optional Program requires a higher level of dedication, training, and commitment as gymnasts work to refine and perfect their skills and routines. Gymnasts often spend significant time in the gym, practicing and conditioning to meet the demands of the higher-level skills and performance expectations.

Competitions in the Optional Program occur at local, state, regional, and national levels, providing gymnasts with the opportunity to advance and compete against other skilled athletes. Performance in the Optional Program can also be a stepping stone for gymnasts aspiring to compete at collegiate or elite levels.

Unlike the Compulsory Program, where gymnasts perform predetermined routines, the Optional Program enables gymnasts to select and perform their own skills and sequences on each apparatus. Gymnasts in the Optional Program often choose and incorporate more difficult and complex skills into their routines, pushing their technical abilities and aiming for higher levels of difficulty and execution.

If your gymnasts is currently on team at another gym, please reach out to discuss your team transfer. Both of our gyms are located in military communities

and we welcome gymnasts as they transfer teams.

Please reach out to discuss options as your family searches for a new gym family.
