Non-Compete Programs

Competing Programs (Ages 6 & up): Waterford Gymnastics Center offers competing programs in both the Xcel Training Program and the USAG Developmental Program.   

Our Xcel Program is an alternative USA Gymnastics competitive program offering individual flexibility to coaches and gymnasts. The goal of Xcel is to provide gymnasts of varying abilities and commitment levels the opportunity for a rewarding gymnastics experience. The Xcel Program consists of 5 levels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond). 

The USAG Developmental Program consists of compulsory levels 2-5 where everyone performs the same routines on all apparatus and Levels 6-10 where each athletes performs a unique routine consisting of specific skill requirements at their respective level. 

Team training requirements begin at 6 hours/weekly and increase as athletes progress through the levels.
