The Xcel Program is a USA Gymnastics sanctioned program designed to offer a broad-based, competitive alternative to the traditional USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic competitive programs.
The purpose of the Xcel Program is to present recreational/developmental gymnasts the opportunity to participate in competition and/or provide Junior Olympic competitive gymnasts the opportunity to continue competition without the intense time and financial commitment.
The interest in this program has grown throughout the country as well as locally in gyms throughout Massachusetts. As our gymnastics program here at the Tumble Kids Billerica has expanded in the last several years, we have re-organized our classes to reflect the needs of our students as they progress. We feel that offering the Xcel Program option for our students will help them to continue developing and improving their skills.
