The Xcel program stands for poise, rhythm, execution and presentation. The program is an alternative to the Junior Olympic program and introduces the athletes to a basic level of the optional program. At GLC our Xcel program focuses on instilling a love of gymnastics, team camaraderie and dedication all while allowing the athlete to work out a limited number of hours.
