Excel at Flips

At Flips, our Xcel program offers high quality training and competition opportunities for gymnasts ages 10+. It is a natural next step for our recreational Level 3 gymnasts or later start gymnasts who are looking to continue growing in strength and skill, while participating in a supportive, competitive program.

By design, the Xcel program is more inclusive, involves a less intense level of strength conditioning, and requires a lesser time commitment than our Junior Olympic training program. As such, Xcel is not intended to be a gateway to the JO program, and it is not a college or elite preparatory training program.

The Xcel gymnasts are invited to join the team by Flips coaching staff. They train approximately 6-9 hours per week and participate in 6 local area competitions each season. As part of our Flips competitive team programming, the Xcel team members also have the opportunity to travel for up to two competitions each season.

The Flips Xcel program continues the Flips philosophy to educate, and empower every individual gymnast through gymnastics and sportsmanship. This program will give the gymnast that is advance enough to compete the opportunity, without the same commitment of our USA Gymnastics Team. This is a great program that builds confidence, friendship and allows our gymnast the room to grow at a less competitive level. The Excel Team at Flips is a part of our Flips Family and is included in all of Flips and POOF events, activities and fundraising and more.

“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.” - USA Gymnastics
