Many gyms have different requirements for skills beyond what is outlined by USAG for Xcel Gold. Based on our gym requirements you'd be fine on floor. Beam: need cartwheel or BWO and full turn. Bars: need squat on to jump to high bar. Vault: need half-on or front handspring over the table.

I my season also just started I had my first silver meet of the season on November 20, 2022. I was just looking toward the future since I would like to level up this year.
Assuming that your silver team is similar to USAG L3, and gold is approximately "L4 or better" I think that you're in great shape. Lots of L3s who will move to L4 are still requiring a spot on their BHS right now. Your skills seem much more advanced.

Get a FHS over a table, figure out how to squat on/leap to high bar, get a good beam cartwheel, get a decent kip. Seems like you could get those skills in a couple months with solid coaching. Easily over summer when you're not messing around with routines.

Of course, that assumes your gym doesn't have super high standards for gold.
