Xcel athletes are required to attend a minimum of 2 practices a week with the opportunity to add a third day if desired. This team is a great fit for athletes who
participate in other extra-curricular activities while still getting the competition experience. These groups require less practice time commitment with more flexibility than our Development Program.

Much like our other teams at IGN, we have high expectations of the girls. Our top priorities are teaching:
1. RESPECT- to our teammates, our coaches, other teams, and to themselves: what this looks like and how we can show this
2. RESPONSIBILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY- being able and motivated to complete assignments at in the gym (and at home) by working to their fullest ability and giving their
maximum efforts (effort towards goals will always be rewarded versus outcomes)
3. REWARDING EXPERIENCE- We try to make practices and assignments fun yet challenging. We make every effort to make gymnastics enjoyable while still being able to get a
lot done in the gym while creating lasting friendships. We set goals as individuals and as a team to help set our focus at each practice. We give our best efforts to get the most out of our time
together. We are not only teaching gymnastics skills but are working hard to build strong character within our athletes.
