Another busy weekend has come and gone for #teamdelta! Our Season One Team Excel Final for our Ruby, Sapphire and Diamond teams took place at our Clayfield venue.
Excel – The Final!
It was super exciting to have over 100 gymnasts competing in the Excel Final this year! The Excel structure is Optional based which means gymnasts can choose skills that ‘suit’ their ability. If your flexibility is not great, the current ALP system says you MUST be able to do skills that require flexibility, in the Excel system the requirement for example is a leap or jump instead of just a leap or a leap requiring less split, thus allowing the gymnast to compete something she is great at, rather than something she is struggling with due to the morphology of her body.
The Excel program allows coaches & gymnasts to choose skills that compliment the gymnast and allow them to show off what they can do well, not what they can’t do. Within the Excel program there are three divisions that partly correlate with the current levels; Ruby, Sapphire and Diamond.

We hope you all enjoyed the Excel Final as much we did! We look forward to more Clubs joining the Excel format for Season Two to make for an even more exciting Final!
