Competitive Gymnastics

Flying High has various levels of Boys and Girls Competitive Gymnastics. We offer Pre-Team, Xcel Team, Compulsory Levels 3-5, and Optional Levels 6-10. We aim to have well-rounded gymnasts at all of our competitive levels. Many of our gymnasts are multi-talented and we encourage them to shine both in and outside of gymnastics.

Our “family” atmosphere creates an environment where all of our athletes feel success and support from their fellow teammates and coaching staff. We pride ourselves on not just developing great gymnasts, but also wonderful young ladies and gentlemen!

Class Descriptions

XCEL Team

XCEL is a new addition to Flying High’s gymnastics programming line-up. It’s an alternative USA Gymnastics competitive program.  We offer the Xcel Program for gymnasts who may have a more limited schedule but still want a competitive gymnastics experience and wish to improve their skills.  Xcel team is open to girls 11 & up who are currently enrolled in our Advanced, Pre-Team or Team programs.  This class is also a perfect fit for former team members and those who have experience with JO. An evaluation is required by a gymnastics instructor in order to participate in Xcel Team.  

Pre-Team Girls

When students have mastered all of the skills from the Intermediate class and have shown motivation and dedication to the sport, they are invited to join our Pre-Team class. In this class, students will begin to learn the USAG Women’s Gymnastics competitive routines on each event. Coaches will expect that students of this class will work hard to become members of the competitive team. Girls need to be evaluated by a Flying High gymnastics instructor in order to participate in Pre-Team.

Girls Team

Girls Team

Our competitive girls gymnastics team grows bigger and stronger every year. We couldn’t be more proud of all the hard work, dedication and strength our girls show inside and outside of the gym. Our competitive girls team levels include: compulsory levels 3-5, and optional levels 6-10.  

Pre-Team Boys

When students have mastered all of the skills from the Intermediate Boys class and have shown motivation and dedication to the sport, they are invited to join our Pre-Team class. In this class, students will begin to learn the USAG Men’s Gymnastics competitive routines on each event. Coaches will expect that students of this class will work hard to become members of the competitive team. Boys need to be evaluated by a Flying High gymnastics instructor in order to participate in Pre-Team.

Boys Team

Boys Team

Our Boys team continues to grow and we’re impressed by this talented group who put their heart and soul into their sport. Boys are invited to be members of our Competitive Boys Gymnastics team after having showing focus and willingness to learn in our Pre Team program, as well as mastering all gymnastics elements of that class. We offer Boys competitive gymnastics for level 4 through level 10!
