Xcel Team
The Xcel Program is designed to offer an opportunity for girls of all levels an affordable competitive experience outside the traditional program.  Xcel is a great option for girls interested in taking the next step in gymnastics. Learn more about USA Gymnastics Xcel Program.
 
Affordability
Our goal is to ensure the competitive program is affordable to those who wish to participate. In addition to monthly fees, expenses will include team leotard and warm-ups, USA Gymnastics registration fee, individual meet fees, and additional coaches fees.
Fundraising is available throughout the year to help defray costs. If you have ideas for fundraising, please feel free to contact us.

Commitment
Xcel gymnasts commit to a year-round training schedule. Our expectation is that their commitment to their training is a very high priority. Attendance and punctuality are very important.
 
How is Xcel different from the Jr. Olympic (J.O.) Program?
First of all the commitment to time in the gym is far less than the J.O. Program.  Xcel athletes may spend less time in the gym, but still get to enjoy competing and being part of a gymnastics team. Second, each Xcel participant can create their routines based on the skills they know and are confident with.
 
Is my gymnast ready for competition?
Our coaching staff will assess your gymnast's skills throughout the year and make a recommendation when skill progression indicates a student is ready. If you believe your gymnast is ready and he or she shows the desire to compete, please talk to the staff. A skill assessment can be given at any time.

Pre-Team
​Gymnasts who are invited to participate with Pre-Team class will be preparing to join the competition team the following year. This is an opportunity for recreational gymnasts to determine if they are ready for the commitment required as an Xcel Team gymnasts.
 
If you gymnast is interested in joining the Pre-Team class, please ask to set up a skill assessment with Coach Indigo.
