Questions about Team Participation at Ace
Do you know the most important quality for when placing gymnasts on team? It’s their passion for gymnastics and desire to be in the gym more than the once a week class coupled with an eagerness to learn new skills.
At Ace we have team programs for boys and girls that can satisfy those desires. Generally team commitment is for a full year, July-June, but some entry level teams may allow a September start.
Boys PreTeam: This year your son can choose to attend this once or twice a week. In the fall each of these practices are 2 hours long, while in the summer we have a 3 hour boys only in the gym on Wednesday evenings for the second practice of PreTeam, a super fun practice time with the current boys team members. Please click here for more information about boys team or PreTeam.
Girls PreTeam : aka Ace All Stars: This training group that will not be competing, and offers 1 or 2 practices per week , each for 2 hours. From this program girls could then move into either the JO or Xcel program. Girls ages 5-8 can enter this program.
Xcel Bronze: Girls can join this the entry level for Xcel team from the class program or Ace All Stars. Gymnasts should be aged 7-13. Summer practices are twice a week for 3 hours at a time, with fall practices a total of 5 ½ hours per week. This group competes in about 4 -5 meets per season.
Junior Olympic: aka JO : Girls would enter JO from Ace All Stars or possibly class. Level 3 would be the starting level having practice 3 times a week, each about 3 hours long. Please click here to read more about the JO program.
We hope you consider an Ace team program for your enthusiastic child.
