Our Competitive Team Program requires a year-round commitment to training and competition from both gymnasts and parents. Boys and girls who show a strong desire and physical potential to be competitive gymnasts at a Junior Olympic and Xcel level are asked to join by invitation. Compulsory & Optional Girls also participate in ballet classes once a week to enhance flexibility, grace, and musicality. For new competitive transfer students, please contact our program director at (650) 571-7555 to schedule an evaluation.
USAG gymnastics has divided the Junior Olympic (JO) Program into 10 levels. At Peninsula, we begin taking athletes to competitions at Level 4. The minimum age for this level of competition is 6 years old. At Levels 4-6, all athletes across the country perform the same routines on all four events (vault, bars, beam, and floor). The emphasis in these levels is to master basic skills that will enable skill development in the future and to experience the thrill of the competitive environment.
Boys Team is made up of a special group of families and athletes who work together through the common bond of Men’s gymnastics. By choosing to be a part of the Peninsula Gymnastics Boys Team your child will be given the chance to experience something rare in this busy day and age: forming friendships and learning life lessons through dedication and hard work. These boys train from 15-20 hours a week preparing for several competitions hosted by USA Gymnastics, the governing body for our sport in the U.S. The Peninsula Gymnastics Boys Team has the opportunity to compete in State and Regional meets around California and the country.
Our Xcel Team program focuses on building positive thinking and creates the ability for gymnasts to exceed their own expectations by pushing themselves and pushing each other as a team. The program focuses on a less demanding schedule in a non-stressful environment and caters to everyone’s individual needs.
