Xcel Bronze is a USA Gymnastics competitive level. It allows gymnasts to showcase their skills on a competitive level against other USAG gym clubs in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Bronze competitions are a fun and exciting opportunity for gymnasts to perform their skills on each event . Bronze team members meet once a week to memorize, practice, and perfect their routines, in addition to their recreational gymnastics class. Bronze participants typically range in age from 6-12.
1. Showcase Your Skills
Gymnasts work very hard to learn and perfect their skills. They practice many hours to master skills such as a round off on floor or a back hip circle on bars. While practicing and learning are fun, it is great to have an opportunity to showcase what you learn. Bronze competitions provide the perfect opportunity to showcase your gymnast's hard work in front of parents, teammates, coaches, and fans.
2. Gain Competitive Experience
Bronze competitions provide a great introduction to the competitive experience. Bronze competitors learn to perform their routine in front of a crowd. They experience the pre-meet jitters and learn to handle the nervous and excited energy. Competitors learn to perform in front of a crowd and in front of judges. They also learn that not everyone will receive first place or an award at every meet, which helps the gymnast learn the importance of personal best and goal setting.
3. Build Confidence in a Team Environment
Overall, Bronze Team is a great way for gymnasts to be a part of a team and increase their belief in themselves. Bronze gymnasts are able to encourage each other during class and competition as they progress. Gymnasts have the opportunity to learn new skills, advance to higher levels, qualify for State Meets, and reap the benefits of gymnastics. Typically gymnasts in Int/Adv or higher meet the skill requirements for Bronze. We would love to evaluate your gymnast for Bronze Team.
