    Xcel Gold help

    if you're a coach or a gymnast in Xcel gold you probably know about the new rule where you can't do two back hip circles on the same bar. So, I have to compete a double back hip circle but for some reason I get so dizzy I can't connect my squat on. Help my meet season is coming up!!

    Anon Moving up to Gold or staying in Silver?

    I am a 7th grader who was a first-year Silver last season. I was the highest-scoring gymnast on my team and placed very well at States (and missed Regionals by a hair!!!) Because of this, my coaches think that I could do Gold if I am up for the challenge. My beam and bars are ready for Gold...

    WAG Xcel gold casts

    In xcel gold, do all my casts have to be above horizontal on bars or can just one. I have to bend my arms to cast high enough and would like to only do that once and then have small straight arm casts.

    Anon Xcel gold to Xcel platinum struggle?

    Do you feel that there is a big jump in scoring requirements from xcel gold to xcel platinum? If one struggled with the jump from silver to gold but then scored well when repeating gold, would you expect a similar struggle when moving from gold to platinum?
