WHAT IS XCEL?
XCEL 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 gymnastics experience.
WHAT DO THEY DO?
XCEL gymnasts work on all four events: vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise. XCEL gymnasts train to compete in multiple meets throughout the season when it is safe to do so. There are 5 divisions: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. Placement is based on the team coaches' recommendation and the skills & level of difficulty each gymnast can attain. Routines are drafted with fluidity based on the ability of each gymnast!

Ms. J's Pre-Team
WHAT IS PRE-TEAM?
Pre-Team is an advanced program for gymnasts ages 5yr-6yr. It is a 60 min class that meets twice a week and focuses on building a strong gymnastics foundation. The goal of Pre Team is to prepare gymnasts for the competitive team in the future.
WHAT DO THEY DO?
During practice, the gymnasts work on flexibility, strength training, rhythm, and coordination. Gymnasts perfect their current gymnastics and dance skills as well as progress towards more difficult skills and skill combinations. Pre-Team gymnasts are also welcome and encouraged to perform or attend the numerous shows or competitions we will organize throughout the year.
How to join the team
Ms. J's Teams are invite only and are subject to a try-out.
Joining a team is a huge commitment in many ways. Each gymnast must show up to every practice prepared, both mentally and physically. We recommend that each potential team gymnast and their family take the time to carefully consider our Team Policies and discuss the big commitment before taking the leap.
