Artistic Gymnastics – Team
Legacy’s Boy’s and Girl’s Artistic Team has several different tracks to choose from. Our elite level coaches can train kids ages 5 and up, ranging from 4-25 hours weekly. Team is invite-only and is offered to athletes who show an interest in competing. This is a year-round sport with competition season typically beginning in January and lasting through May for the higher levels. Legacy has a state of the art facility and we have designed our gym to be the safest place to train all our athletes. We have the only foam topped airbag pit currently in the country, along with several in-ground trampolines and resi pits. In addition, we have invested in the best vault table and Moscow spring floor used by the most elite athletes (Simone Biles) in the country so our athletes can train on the best equipment! We also incorporate strength training and conditioning to ensure all our athletes have the strength needed to avoid unnecessary injuries. All our coaches are professional USA Gymnastics members, and have undergone both background checks and live scan fingerprinting. As parents, you can rest assured we have your child’s best interests at heart.
We have the following team programs:
– Pre-Team: This group is made up of athletes who are preparing for competition and who may still be deciding whether competition is something they want to do. Children are offered additional hours to learn more advanced skills and maneuvers. Pre-Team athletes may filter into one of our teams: XCEL or Junior Olympic.
– USAG Junior Olympic: Legacy offers competition levels 2-10 for girls and 4-10 for boys. These levels are based on testing and skills athletes have acquired. Typically an athlete trains between 6-25 hours weekly depending on the level they will be competing. The J.O. Program is broken into Compulsory (levels 3-5 for women, levels 4-7 for men) and Optional (levels 6-10 for women, level 8-10 for men) and the athletes rotate through the four events for women and six events for men. In the compulsory levels, all the athletes are required to do the same routines on each event. When they reach the optional levels, the athletes are free to create their own routines and are only required to have certain elements (skills) within those routines.
– USAG XCEL: XCEL is a modified version of USAG Junior Olympic and is a wonderful program for children who do other activities or sports. The training schedule is less intense and less rigorous but allows the athlete to still compete. There is no compulsory level in the XCEL program so athletes are free to create their own routines with certain elements (skills) required within those routines.
