Empire Gymnastics Competitive Team

Empire offers two types of competition tracks in competitive gymnastics, Xcel & Developmental program. Empire utilizes both tracks seamlessly and will move athletes according to their skill level progress, maturity, flexibility and coachability. We strive to do what is best for each individual athlete. And know that each athlete's path to success is unique.

Xcel Program:
The Xcel Gymnastics Program and Competitions are sanctioned by USA Gymnastics. There are currently 6 levels in the Xcel Program; Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond & Sapphire. The routines are based off requirements that have been set, however these requirements are filled based on the athletes individual strengths.

USAG Developmental Program:
Levels 2-5 are Compulsory Levels. All gymnasts in these levels perform the same routines set by the USA Gymnastics. Levels 6-10 is referred to as optional gymnastics. These levels have more variety in the individual routines but they still have set skills they are required to do. The skill difficulty increases along with each level. The USA Gymnastics Developmental Program (in which we are a member of) sets the guidelines for each level.

Both programs are invite only.
