Get Involved

Our teams can usually be broken up into 3 main categories:

Acro Performance, Competitive Gymnastics, and Competitive Dance.


The Roots Acro Performance Teams,

affectionately referred to as RAPT, is a fast paced and flexible track for students who enjoy the thrill of performance, but are not necessarily interested in the travel requirements for competitive routes.   


Here at Roots we host both Men's Competitive Gymnastics, as well as Women's Competitive Gymnastics. Our Men's team is Level 3+ in the Developmental Program. The Women's Team begins with Xcel and then progresses into Girls Developmental Program.


The Roots Acro Dance Teams, (R.A.D.) are the perfect fit for the serious dancer. Students on the R.A.D. team travel to compete as well as attend several dance conventions. In addition, they also perform locally.



Roots Acro Performance Teams


Director: Mara Lee Stark

     The Roots Acro Performance Teams are an unique opportunity to pursue gymnastics skills without the intensive requirements of many competitive programs. In these teams, students have multiple chances each year to showcase their skills on stage and work together with their teammates to learn and perfect choreography. 

Boy's & Girl's

Competitive Gymnastics

Competitive Gymnastics


Director: Ben Palmer

     The Developmental Program is organized into ten different levels of training or competition. Each level has multiple age groups and opportunities for participation and competition. Competition is carried out at the local, state, regional and national levels through USA Gymnastics sanctioned invitational meets and championship level meets. The Men’s Developmental National Championships are held in May of each year for eligible athletes in Levels 8, 9 and 10 who have qualified through their Regional Championships. The season culminates for eligible Level 10 athletes at the P&G Gymnastics Championships.


Girl's Xcel

Director: Erin Beaudette

     The Xcel program is an alternative USA Gymnastics program offering individual flexibility to coaches and gymnasts.  From USA Gymnastics “The Xcel Program is designed to offer a broad-based, affordable competitive experience outside the traditional Developmental Program to attract and retain a diverse group of athletes.”  The Xcel program is broken up into 5 levels beginning with Bronze (our preteam level), Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond.  Your child will progress through the levels at her own pace, not necessarily as a group.  We have a list of skills required to compete at each level and as your daughter masters those skills she will be moved into the next level.  The coaches will conduct monthly skill evaluations to track each gymnast's progress.

Girl's Developmental



Roots Acro Dance Teams


Director: Mara Lee Stark/Katie Thompson

     For the aspiring dancer, the Roots Acro Dance Teams offer the ability to pursue advanced dance techniques and bring those skills to the main stage. These teams travel across Montana and neighboring states to compete with their routines. R.A.D. is the perfect path for the student who takes their love for dance seriously.
