USAG JO Team
USAG Junior Olympic (JO) is a competitive program nationwide under guidelines of USAG. This program involves increased commitment and practice time compared to our other team programs. Training hours vary by level from 9 to 24 hours per week. We compete compulsory levels 3-5 and Optional levels 6-10. Gymnasts generally enter from Pre-Team or Xcel Bronze at young ages.
Xcel is a competitive program nationwide under guidelines of USAG that allows gymnasts to compete in a fun, recreational setting. This program involves less commitment and less practice time compared to USAG JO. We offer Bronze (6 hrs), Silver (8hrs), and Gold (9 hrs) levels. Gymnasts generally enter from HotShots (age 4-5) or Pre-Team (age 6-7). Some gymnasts will move to USAG JO program from Xcel. After completion of Xcel Gold, our gymnasts compete in the JOGA league.
Jersey Optional Gymnastics Association (JOGA) offers girls the opportunity to compete at a highly competitive level in club gymnastics while still participating in activities outside of gymnastics. The JOGA league follows the same rules as high school gymnastics, thus preparing gymnasts to compete in both JOGA and high school gymnastics. Most levels train 9 hours per week. We offer Levels 1-7. Gymnasts generally enter from Advanced Rec Classes, Xcel Gold, or USAG JO.
