ACPR EXCEL TEAM
2016-2017

 

The Xcel Program is a national program that runs alongside the JO (Junior Olympic) gymnastics program.  It is a separate, alternate program. The Xcel Program is composed of divisions instead of levels.  The Xcel program also has scores that the gymnasts need to earn before being able to advance, but in addition JO scores can be used for entry into an Xcel program division.   ACPR’s Excel Team coach is “Miss Holly”.
