Danik gymnastics has earned a reputation for being Idaho's strongest and most consistently high scoring competitive team. We take our program seriously and strive for excellence. Our team is large averaging around 100 girls between Optional, Compulsory and Xcel levels. All of our levels are very successful in competition and continue to work hard and improve! Danik has been home to many past State & Regional champions and has had many represent Idaho in national competitions.
WHICH PROGRAM IS RIGHT FOR YOUR GYMNAST?
On the competitive side of gymnastics, our Girl's Team is divided into Junior Olympic and Xcel Programs.
XCEL is for gymnasts whose main priority is to have fun while still experiencing the competitive world of gymnastics. XCEL teams are as follows:
- XCEL Bronze
- XCEL Silver
- XCEL Gold
- XCEL Platinum
- XCEL Diamond
The XCEL levels are part of our competitive Team program, but their practices are shorter and less intense than Junior Olympic Levels. Our XCEL group is extremely talented and very successful.
Junior Olympic levels are the more intense competitive teams.
- Compulsory: Level 1 - 5
- Optionals: Level 6 - 10
These are the most competitive and advanced gymnasts at our gym. They are extremely dedicated and practice anywhere from 15 hours per week (Level 2) to 24 hours per week (Level 8). They have lots of fun but work very hard and face some of the toughest competition in the nation. Many of these gymnasts are working towards college scholarships or the elite program (those who go to the olympics).
