Xcel Team

 

 The goal of Xcel is to provide gymnasts of varying abilities and commitment levels the opportunity for a rewarding gymnastics experience. Xcel Team athletes must become members of USA Gymnastics in order to participate, which is currently $63 (2020-2021 Season).

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. A Booster club can really help supplement or even cover these costs! 

 

BGC is actively searching for a group of motivated individuals to start a BGC Booster Club. This Booster Club would organize fundraisers and provide volunteer service to support fundraisers. Funds raised would be managed by the BGC Booster club and directly benefit the BGC Xcel Team Families. As per Booster club law, these funds would be equally distributed to all Xcel Team members equally and they would be used to cover or supplement meet expenses and uniforms. Talk to Tiffany or Nicole if you want to help!
