Form for athletes looking for NCAA Gymnastics Scholarships
NCAA rules now allow the recruiting of athletes in the 8th grade and above, therefore the “Soph/Jr” form is now for Level 9 & 10 athletes who are in 8th grade and higher. Be sure to put your athletes graduation year in the Academic Information section. Once you hit SAVE at the bottom of the form, information goes into a database that Region 8 USA Gymnastics will send to all NCAA colleges with gymnastics programs in November.

Athlete Memberships - ALL Clubs need to double check all of their athletes registration on line for the following
Membership is current (with a JULY 31, 2016 expiration date)
LEVEL MUST BE CORRECT
BIRTHDATE MUST BE CORRECT
SPELLING OF NAME MUST BE CORRECT
Correct address so that they will receive the USA Gymnastics magazine.
All of this is much easier now with the new system. Changes are a push of a button. If the athlete moves up a level or moves from JO to Xcel or Xcel to JO, please update online.
Meet Directors will pull the roster for your club when you enter a competition and use that information to enter your athletes in their meet - if the level or birthdate or name spelling is not correct, your athlete will be entered in the meet incorrectly. It is not the responsibility of the meet director to know the correct level or birthdate of your athlete - IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK YOUR ATHLETE ROSTER ON THE USA Gymnastics NATIONAL OFFICE WEB SITE -
