AGI’s TOPs Team consists of age-eligible AGI Junior Olympic and Xcel athletes who wish to explore the elite developmental process who have aspirations to eventually become an Elite Athlete and/or USA National Team Member.
TOPS State testing, which takes place every June and July combines both Physical Abilities and Basic Skills on events. Only 300 Athletes ages 8-10 will qualify nation-wide to test at the National Level in October, where they will vie for placement on the TOPs National Team. TOPs National Team Training Camps are held in December. Athletes attending the National Team Training Camps may be invited to further Developmental Training Camps.
Not every child fits the criteria for the TOPs testing participation, however it DOES NOT mean that they will not become high-level, successful gymnasts. Everyone invited to the AGI Team Programs has the opportunity and the potential to be very successful in this sport, however every child must follow the path that works for them. We recognize that every child invited to the AGI Team Program is unique and we make it our mission to provide each child with a curriculum that will benefit their needs.
