Canton Gymnastics Team
USA Gymnastics has two competitive tracks: XCEL and the JO Program. XCEL encompasses levels Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond while JO includes levels 1-10. At Canton Gymnastics our competitive levels begin at USA XCEL Bronze. Once a gymnast reaches XCEL Gold they have the option to continue through the XCEL track or switch to the JO track beginning in level 4 and moving up from there. Currently our competitive team practices between 2 and 4 days a week depending on their level and competes at 5 regular season meets with State meet during the post season followed by Regionals for those who qualify. At CGC we compete during the Spring season which runs from January to April.
GymStars is a hybrid recreational-competitive program. GymStars practice twice a week for two hours a day and compete in three local GymStar meets each Spring. It is a great alternative for those who want a more competitive gymnastics experience but do not want the same level of financial and time commitment that is required on the competition gymnastics team. It is also great for those who are interested in joining the competitive team in the future.
