All of Region 8's volunteer state and regional officers meet with USA Gymnastics new CEO.

Posted: 03.12.2018

I am proud to let you know that all 8 State Chairman and all 4 Regional Chairman met with 76 other state, regional, and national chairman, from all over the country, and USA Gymnastics new CEO Kerry Perry and USA Gymnastics Women's programs National staff members yesterday.

 

I came away from the meeting with renewed confidence that USA Gymnastics is doing the right things to correct past errors and to move forward to be better than ever! Better communication with athletes, clubs, coaches, parents, and judges has already began and more will start soon. Look for video during American Cup coverage this weekend.

 

This is a statement from the 88 volunteer chairman that met February 28, 2018 in Indianapolis:

 

USA Gymnastics holds the highest standard of care for athletes and members.

 

We have the desire to rebuild and to move forward.

 

We have the opportunity right now, in the history of USA Gymnastics, in our sport, and in our country, to lead, saying, we are going to get it right. By doing that, we will honor our athletes who have been impacted and we will honor all USA Gymnastics members and participants, including, but not limited to, athletes, coaches, parents, judges, and volunteers.

 

We will not be the organization that shuts the doors, changes the name, and puts a new face on the same institution.

 

At the end of the day, we have an opportunity to improve USA Gymnastics. We have an obligation to meet the challenge that has been set before us and to become a better organization. It is about sharing positive gymnastics stories and getting it right.

 

We will get it right.

 

Eighty-Eight Women’s Program USA Gymnastics National, Regional, and State leaders stood today to wholeheartedly support USA Gymnastics.

 

Here are some of the highlights:

 

  • Athlete Assistance fund has been set up to assist affected athletes
  • Athlete Task Force has been set up to help shape our future
  • The Ranch training center has been closed and USA gymnastics is working to set up a world class Training center for all the disciplines of USA gymnastics
  • Kerry Perry, CEO has set up and attended listening forums at clubs around the country with coaches, athletes, parents and professional members to discuss safe sport and ideas for the future of USA gymnastics

 

We would love to have your positive thoughts to help us move forward. If you have a special positive story about an athlete that shows how gymnastics can impact athlete's lives, please send it to me. If your club is making changes in your policies that may go over and beyond what Safe Sport is doing or you have an idea that will benefit our athletes/coaches and clubs please send it to me. We can not let the bad press from Nassar define who we are and take away all of the positive things that our sport provides. Be a part of making our sport better than it has ever been.
