Altius offers the Junior Olympic Program (Levels 3-10) and the Xcel Program (Silver, Gold, Diamond, Platinum) for girls, and Junior Olympic (Levels 4-10) for boys interested in competitive gymnastics. Girls and boys ages 6 and up are invited to join a team program upon showing skill readiness, and as space permits.
Altius team program coaches are USA Gymnastics professional members and are USA Gymnastics Safety Certified, and Medic First Aid & CPR certified.They are trained through attendance at National and Regional Congress, WI state education sessions, and Altius in-gym training sessions. The Altius coaches are a very enthusiastic group who enjoy guiding each gymnast through their gymnastics and personal development.
This program is by invitation only, and is designed for girls with a high level of talent and an uncommon drive to progress as a competitive athlete. It takes gymnasts through designated routines and structured progressions intended to give each athlete the opportunity to reach the highest levels in the sport. This is the program that produces college athletes and National team members. The program requires a strong personal and financial commitment along with stricter requirements than the recreational or XCEL programs. Gymnasts may transition to the XCEL program if it becomes a better fit for their development and/or interest level.
This program is designed for girls interested in transitioning from recreational classes into a competitive team program. It is less rigorous than the Junior Olympic program with a smaller weekly time and financial commitment. XCEL offers gymnasts the ability to train year round and participate in the world of gymnastics while leaving time for other interests and activities. Occasionally it may be possible for a gymnast to transition from XCEL to the J.O. program if she meets the requirements and is interested in increasing her commitment to the sport.
The men's gymnastics program is by invitation only, and is intended for boys with the strength, skill, talent, and drive to progress in a competitive setting. Junior Olympic moves gymnasts through designated skill routines and structured progressions. The program requires a strong personal and financial commitment along with stricter requirements than the recreational program.
