The Xcel Program is an alternative USA Gymnastics competitive program offering individual flexibility to coaches and gymnasts. The goal of Xcel is to provide gymnasts of varying abilities and commitment levels the opportunity for a rewarding competitive gymnastics experience. With fewer hours in the gym, our Xcel gymnasts are able to enjoy competitive gymnastics and other activities at the same time without having to choose one activity over another, but don’t get us wrong- our gymnasts work hard to be the very best. They also have tons of fun!
