Boys Gymnastics Teams
Competitive Gymnastics is a rewarding sport that fosters strength, focus, teamwork, determination, and personal satisfaction. We're proud of our teams and our coaches. Exxcel's Boys Teams have won many individual and team awards, as well as state, regional, and national titles.
We select team coaches very carefully – creating a unique combination of discipline, structure, hard work, nurture, and fun to bring out the best in each of our athletes. Exxcel's team coaches have years of experience training and competing athletes at the highest levels, and many also bring their own international competition experience.
At the team level, gymnastics is also a demanding sport that requires time, energy, dedication and commitment. We understand however, that there is life outside the gym. For that reason, there are varying levels of commitment within the Exxcel Boys Team program to suit different goals and lifestyles.
If you have specific program questions or would like to request an evaluation, please contact Rustam Vakhitov our Boys Team Coordintors at (617)244-3300.
