Xcel Team: Bronze, Silver, Gold
ConXion utilizes the Xcel Competitive Program of USA Gymnastics to foster the unique development of each ConXion gymnast. Xcel athletes benefit from personalized routines that showcase individual strengths. Each season, Xcel athletes progress through the fundamental building blocks for advanced gymnastics training. In addition, all Xcel athletes have the option to qualify for regional competition each season, giving them the opportunity to compete with the best in their level and age division across the southeast. This experience has proven invaluable for those athletes who qualify, as they return home and prepare for the next season. Xcel Bronze, Silver, and Gold practices are held at both our Hernando and Olive Branch locations.
Optional Team: Levels 6-10
Our Optional Team is led by Emily Lay and Louis Robinson. Coach Louis has been an assistant coach at several colleges including University of Florida & Mizzou.

Several of our levels 8-10 have qualified for USA Gymnastics Regional and National training camps. Our Optional Team practices 20 hours per week and competes in 8 regular season meets, with the option for additional merit meets, and Regional and National competitions. All level 6-10 athletes practice at our Olive Branch location.

I was a competitive cheerleader my whole life, even for ConXion! I started coaching 5 years ago, and have coached at both ConXion locations! I am currently in Nursing School, and when I need a break - I coach!
I am 18 years old and currently a senior at Hernando High School. I plan on going to Delta State University or the University of Memphis and majoring in commercial aviation. I have a background of gymnastics, but I recently was a competitive cheer leader, then a high school cheer leader.
