The Xcel team does an excellent job of preparing athletes for high school competition. However, athletes can participate in the BGC Xcel Team no matter where they currently go to school. Homeschoolers? Yep. Surrounding communities? Yep. Your school has gymnastics, but their program isn't a good fit for you? Yep. You can be in Xcel.
BGC Xcel athletes are required to pay for all competitive meet expenses, including uniforms, team fees and coaching fees. Coaches will always try to choose the most affordable uniforms and attend the most affordable meets in the area possible, but our staff realizes that it can still add up.
The Fergus Falls Flippers Booster club may supplement or even cover these costs depending on available funds!
BGC will offer the following Xcel Team Practices for the 2021-2022 Season (Sept-May)
(Prices and Practice Schedules Subject to Change) :
Tuesdays and Thursdays 5- 8 pm - $150/ month
