EAGLES TEAM PROGRAM
Eagles Gymnastics has a stellar reputation for its competitive gymnastics program. Eagles girls have been Missouri State Champions many times in its 25 year+ history and Eagles has had multiple Regional and National Champions.
Eagles believes Team sports can boost kids' self-esteem, coordination and general fitness along with helping them learn how to be an effective part of a team - to cooperate with and support each other. Being part of a competitive gymnastic team teaches discipline, self-motivation, time management, respect and concentration. In addition, the girls form close friendships that will last a lifetime!
Usag is the governing body for Junior Olympic and Olympic-bound gymnasts. Eagles participates in 2 USAG programs, the Junior Olympic Program and the Xcel Program.
Junior Olympic Program
The Junior Olympic Program is broken down into levels 1 - 10 and offers some of the strongest, most challenging competition at each level. Athletes competing at levels 1 - 5 compete Compulsory routines: each child competes the same exact routines on each apparatus and uses the same floor routine music. Athletes competing at Level 6 and above compete Optional routines: each gymnast competes their own unique routine on each apparatus and can choose their own floor routine music, though there are still requirements regarding what types of elements and skills must be included at each level. At Eagles, all of Eagles Level 6 Optional gymnasts compete with the same Eagles-designed Optional routine.
The Junior Olympic Program is a highly demanding program, requiring a lot of time and dedication. Due to the levels of precision and difficulty required to execute routines, Junior Olympic Program gymnasts will typically train between 8 and 20 plus hours per week. Former Eagles Gymnasts competing in this program have gone on to compete at college level at such institutions as Oklahoma, Alabama, Mizzou, Ohio State, Iowa State, SEMO and more.
