COMPETITIVE gymnastics

Thrive Gym believes in a healthy sport/life balance, a concept that our team coaches prioritize. We are committed to a positive coaching philosophy that uses gymnastics as a vehicle to build physical strength, confidence and self respect in your child. We love to use gymnastics to teach life lessons that our gymnasts will remember long after they have stopped competing. We are also committed to helping each child achieve their definition of success, not ours.

Thrive Gym strives to create a community that supports each other and provides each of our gymnasts with a sense of belonging and camaraderie. We want our children to know that whatever happens in life, they will always belong in our gym. Our goal is to create a sense of family and togetherness where our gymnasts lift each other up, talk each other through the tough moments and celebrate each other's success.



The Xcel League was developed by USA Gymnastics as an alternative for the Junior Olympic Gymnastics League. The Xcel league is a more relaxed recreational league that allows children to compete in gymnastics without the intense time required for the D.P. League. Gymnasts are able to progress through 5 levels of competition.​

  • Levels Currently Offered: Pre-Team, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Sapphire​

  • Annapolis only

  • Practice Length: 2-5 hours​

USAG Developmental program

The program allows gymnasts to advance at their own pace, competing in more than one level in a year if they choose. This program is broken up into 3 segments including Developmental (Level 1-3) , Compulsory (Level 4-5), Optionals (Level 6-10).​

  • Levels Currently Offered: Pre-Team, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9​, 10

Mini Team was created for gymnasts ages 3 to 5 years old who show great listening skills, physical strength, mental toughness and the desire to one day be on a competitive team. While the end goal of Mini team is to advance through our competitive program it is not always the path everyone takes. During their time on Mini Team, gymnasts will learn how to follow directions, work independently, ask questions when they do not understand something, work well with teammates, how to be a good teammate, and how to make good decisions. These are all things that will not only help them in gymnastics but in the outside world!

  • Ages: 3-4 yrs

  • Annapolis only

  • Practice Length: 1.25 hours

  • Practice Frequency: 2 days a week



Pre-Team is founded on teaching proper gymnastics technique, learning respect for coaches and teammates, enhancing physical strength, living a healthy lifestyle, accomplishing self confidence, and having FUN. This is for girls who wish to one day be on competitive teams. Pre-team focuses on strength training and fundamental skills required at the competitive levels. Pre-Team will participate in an in-house competition at the end of the season. At the end of their season, Pre-Team athletes may be invited to transition into one of our competitive leagues!
