Is being 13 in Xcel silver old? My DDs the seccond oldest on on her team but I’ve heard other gyms have older girls. Do you think she is too old?

This varies from gym to gym, but overall you will see a broad range of ages in all xcel levels. The oldest age group at our silver xcel state meet this year was 14 1/2 and up, so plenty of "older" gymnasts!

She is definitely not too old. There may be some meets where most of the silvers are on the "younger" side, but yes there are plenty that are 13 and older.

Nope, Xcel is pretty diverse and open to all ages. That’s what’s fun about it.

That would definitely not be too old in our area. You see all kinds of older girls in Xcel Silver.

My DD16 was 12 when she was a Silver -- turned 13 a couple of months after the season ended. She was often in the oldest age group at meets but was never the oldest gymnast there. That's one of the perks of Xcel!

Don’t adults ever compete in Excel?

In Australia sometimes adults compete in the levels program (similar to US JO).
