USAG TEAM PROGRAMS
Team UP (abbreviated from "Ultimate Performance") is our competitive gymnastics team program, which includes
our pre-competitive Stars programs, Junior Olympic and Xcel teams. Team UP is a year-round commitment open to gymnasts
who have advanced through training classes and have the desire to join a competitive team. We are always looking
for children who love gymnastics and are interested in being part of our team program!
However, we never push our class students into competition to have a larger team. Instead, we develop athletes
who truly want to compete! Gymnastics is an awesome sport no matter what the goals of the students are, be it recreational
or competitive. If you feel your child wants to be part of our team program, we will lay out all the options and
let you decide. No Pressure! Please fill out the form at the bottom of the page if you are interested!
Junior Olympic Team Program
Team UP competes within the USAG circuit, the official sanctioning body and the top-tier of gymnastics in the United
States. Participation leads to state, regional and national competition. The Junior Olympic (JO) program consists
of 10 levels. Team UP gymnasts can start competing JO at Level 3.
We do not compete JO Levels 1 and 2 because these are beginner levels geared towards helping young gymnasts develop
into strong competitors once they reach the skill level 3 or 4. We have incorporated all the skills in Level 1-2
and much more into our class program so that our gymnasts acquire the skills, strength and flexibility needed for
The Junior Olympic compulsory levels (1-5) focus on physical and mental preparation for the USAG compulsory routines.
The optional levels (6-10), focus on each individual gymnast's personal goals within a team atmosphere. Each level
has specific requirements and movement standards that each gymnast will need to perform consistently in order for
success. We help all gymnasts perform to our high standard of technical quality.
Xcel Team Program
The USAG Xcel program is a national program with uniform rules and guidelines that provides an affordable competitive
experience outside the traditional Junior Olympic Program. Xcel offers the same team experience traveling to meets,
earning awards and making lifelong friendships. However, Xcel is more flexible, less demanding and more affordable
than JO. Team UP's Xcel program competes in the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) gymnastic circuit in Wisconsin.
Xcel is a great team program for gymnasts who also do other sports or who love competitive gymnastics but do not
want to commit the time necessary to compete in the Junior Olympic program. Optional routines are choreographed
for each gymnast, which is also excellent preparation for high school gymnastics. There are 5 levels within the
Xcel program. In order of difficulty, these are Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. Xcel is a great program
for athletes who want to:
- Compete as a gymnast while doing other sports or activities
- Continue with competitive gymnastics with lowered cost and time
- Focus on the skills that are the gymnast's greatest strengths.
- Eventually join their high school gymnastics team
- Compete against a wide variety of athletes with similar ability levels
