This program has been developed to help our advanced recreational gymnasts continue to progress their skills on all events. This program is used to recruit gymnasts into our competitive USAIGC and Xcel team programs. Coaches will notify parents of their athlete's potential and advise them which appropriate team division will suit their child best. We attend New Jersey Gap Meets, to showcase our Junior Advanced skills at local gymnastics facilities and introduce them to the competition setting.
