Junior Olympic team: comprised of gymnasts ranging in ages from 6 - 18; competing in USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic Levels 4 - 10. Team members practice anywhere from 8 - 20 hours per week, depending on competitive level. Our team travels to competitions throughout the state of New York as well as other states in the northeast. Current and past team members have achieved success at all levels including numerous state and regional champions, as well as multiple competitors at national championship competitions. Excel has also developed multiple gymnasts who have gone on to collegiate gymnastics teams.
XCEL Team: this is a USA Gymnastics designed program to provide a competitive option for students who wish to move beyond the recreational class program but are not able to commit to the intensity of a Junior Olympic competitive team, as well as former Junior Olympic team members who no longer wish to compete at such, but are not ready to move on from gymnastics completely. The Xcel Program is designed to offer a broad-based, affordable competitive experience outside the traditional Jr. Olympic Program to attract and retain a diverse group of athletes.
Pre-Team: is offered at Excel which is geared toward developing strong technical fundamentals of skills for future placement on one of our competitive teams. These classes are conducted in a more disciplined manner and may be longer in duration than our general recreational classes. Participation in pre-team classes and membership on the competitive team are by invitation only. Please contact us to have your child evaluated if you wish to pursue a spot on our team!
