    For Coaches Dance/Leap Passes for Xcel Gold

    My DD just completed the first half of her season as a level 5, and will finish the remainder of the season as an Xcel Gold. She just learned her choreography this week, and her dance pass is split leap, split leap. I have looked at the requirements for an Xcel Gold floor routine, and the way...

    For Coaches Xcel gold floor tumbling pass ideas

    Hello. I'm new this season to Xcel. I have a gymnast that is gold. Her tumbling is a big struggle for her. Her first pass is a ROBHS. My hang up is her 2nd pass. Her front handspring is very weak so a front tumble pass is kinda out till we fix it. She doesn't have an aerial, and her front salto...

    For Parents Xcel gold instead of compulsories?

    Since I'm still fairly new to all this, I'd appreciate any opinions! We had a meeting tonight and HC is having the new girls on the team do Xcel gold then eventually score out of 4/5 then go to either 6 or 7. Is this common? DD did two meets at level 3 while on the pre-team this spring and now...

    I recently competed last week and my coaches decided to change my bar routine a bit. I was wondering if this is enough for xcel gold because it is really short. So it's pullover (hopefully a kip I am so close I think I will be able to get it by the 25th -my next meet), back hip circle, squat on...

    Does anyone know what the qualifications have to be for Excel Gold Regionals? Is it the top 3 that go or is it a score you need to attain?

    HA! My dd won gold on tramp today at 3rd qualifier!

    And I say HA only because she wasn't going to compete tramp this year, but had a change of heart. Last year she was consistently middle to bottom of the pack. Last qualifier she was 3rd and this time she won! Happy shocker! She also placed 3rd on Double mini, which was the opposite kind of...

    WAG Xcel Gold Floor Tumbling Requirements

    I'm in Xcel Gold and I was looking at the requirements for our floor routines. Our coach told us that it would be fine to have our first tumbling pass as a robhs and the second a front hs. The requirement says "1. 1 acro connection min two flight elements." Wouldn't that mean robhsbhs or robhs...
