Competitive gymnastics at Gotta Flip is a demanding sport of strength and agility. The Xcel gymnastics program is governed by the United States Artistic Gymnastics Association (USAG) and the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). Athletes will be trained for competitive competitions in Xcel levels Bronze to Platinum. Athletes will progress through these levels as set aside by the USAG. No experience is necessary to join the competitive gymnastics program as competition levels are divided based on age and ability level. Competitions will be local with one travel competition each year in the summer. Due to the individual aspect of this sport, flexible commitment schedules are available. However, team awards will be awarded at all competitions therefore we highly recommend that all gymnasts attend all competitions. Girls ages 6-18 are welcome to join our competitive gymnastics program coached by former Central Crossing High School gymnast and current Central Crossing, Franklin Heights nad Westland High School assistant gymnastics coach Haley Deal and former OCC Floor Exercise Champion, 2 time All-State Competitor and current Upper Arlington High School gymnastics coach Brittany Maynard. The Xcel program will serve as a feeder program for high school gymnastics programs.
