Have you EXPIRED!!
All Professional and athlete memberships expired on July 31 - ALL members need to renew as soon as possible - Please check your expiration dates on your background and safety test as your membership will not become ACTIVE until everything is up to date
Once you have signed in go to Membership and then My Profile and check your information. PLEASE take time to update. ALL Regional mailings come from this database.
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 -
