Competitive Team

Competitive gymnastics is a specialized sport that demands many hours of work and dedication.  It is also a passion.  The girls on our competitive teams learn to work hard and set goals.  They learn commitment and team work, they make friends and memories and they have experiences that last a lifetime.  At Elite Gymnastics & Aquatics, we offer competitive and semi-competitive teams as well a parents association, ECGA, to help with fundraising and provide support for parents and families.  Elite also hosts two home meets each competitive season.

All team members of KC Elite train and compete under programs designed by the USA Gymnastics committee.

Competitive Team – USAG Xcel

Elite is now offering the Bronze, Silver, Gold, & Platinum Divisions of the Xcel program. The Xcel Program is designed to offer a broad-based, affordable competitive experience outside the traditional Jr. Olympic Program.  Xcel is a unique gymnastic opportunity where the athlete’s strengths are capitalized upon to create individualized routines for all apparatus. This system is focused on learning and developing new skills while enjoying the competitive aspects of gymnastics. It is a more personalized approach to all levels of gymnastics not just the highest levels. Additionally, Xcel promotes the perfecting of basic skills, learning of new and more challenging skills, artistry, creativity, persistence, achieving goals, good sportsmanship and camaraderie.  We are very excited about this new addition to our competitive team and the opportunities that it offers our athletes.  These gymnasts are selected through our Invitational Class Program.

Competitive Team – Levels 3-10

Elite offers competitive gymnastics beginning at Level 3. Beginning at Level 3, all athletes are required to obtain a USAG competitive registration number and all competitive events are sanctioned by USA Gymnastics. At this level, girls spend 9-23 hours in the gym each week and attend 7-12 meets per competitive season.  Elite teams attend both local and out of town meets.

In the past 40 years, Elite has been proud to have State Champions, Regional Champions, Western National Champions and National competitors who have placed in the top ten in the nation.  We have had athletes compete at the Elite and Collegiate level and many have received scholarships.   In 1996, the coaching staff was recognized by the Kansas House of Representatives for Outstanding Contribution to Gymnastics.
