Junior Olympic (JO) gymnastics is a competitive program run by USA Gymnastics for athletes interested in artistic gymnastics. In the JO program levels range from 1-10, with level one as the introductory level with the most basic requirements and skills. Gymnasts progress at their own pace, gymnasts must achieve a minimum score in competition in order to progress to the next level. A gymnast is not allowed to skip any levels but may compete in more than one level per year in every program but men’s artistic. In men's artistic, athletes compete in one level per year. IN the JO Program, levels 1-5 are compulsory level meaning the routines have a set elements and music with a couple of variations allowed for individual choice. Levels 6-10 are called Optional where each gymnast chooses from a set of elements and choreograph their own routines. These elements have skill ratings and they need to meet a requirement of certain rated skills for each apparatus.
XCEL is an alternative USA Gymnastics competitive program offering individual flexibility to coaches and gymnasts who did not want the higher commitment level/structure of the JO Program. The goal of XCEL is to provide gymnasts of varying abilities and commitment levels the opportunity for a rewarding gymnastics experience. XCEL gymnasts go to most of the same competitions as the JO gymnasts but compete in different sessions.
