The goal of the MSGA Gymnastics Team is to provide talented young ladies with the opportunity to train and compete in a positive and productive atmosphere. MSGA offers Women's Artistic Gymnastics in compulsory and optional USA Gymnastics Levels 3 - 10 (USGA Junior Olympic Program) and Xcel. 

Junior Olympic Program (JO) - In our JO program, girls start competing at MSGA as young as 6 years old. The girls will compete on Bars, Beam, Floor and Vault. After receiving the required score and their coach's approval, athletes will advance up the USAG level system from Level 3 to 10. Levels 3 -5 are Compulsory Levels, meaning all athletes at any particular levels are doing the exact same routines. Level 6 and up are the Optional Levels, meaning each athlete will have their own routines based on some guidelines for each level. The JO program is time intensive and has a substantial financial commitment. 

Xcel Program - The Xcel Program is a USA Gymnastics sanctioned program designed to offer a broad-based, affordable and competitive alternative to the traditional USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic competitive programs.  The purpose of the Xcel Program is to present recreational gymnasts the opportunity to participate in competition and/or provide Junior Olympic competitive gymnasts the opportunity to continue competition without the intense time commitment.  

The Xcel Program:

  • Allows girls to set and achieve individual gymnastics goals.
  • Presents the experience of team comaraderie.
  • Provides flexibility for girls to engage in other extra-curricular activities, sports, or family time.
