XCEL TEAM PROGRAM
AGI’s Xcel Team Program is for any athlete with a love for the sport of gymnastics who is interested in competing! Our Xcel Team Program is perfect for a wide variety of athletes and is the perfect training environment for those seeking to see what competitive gymnastics is all about, athletes involved in multiple sports, athletes who cannot commit to hourly or physical requirements of the AGI Junior Olympic Team.
The flexibility of the USAG Xcel Code of Points allows coaches to grow skills within each competitive tier while customizing routines to suit gymnasts strengths! Xcel athletes are required to attend a minimum of 4 local competitions each calendar year so that they may qualify to the Illinois State Championships at the culmination of the season!
