Very Important Information for Coaches of Athletes 18 and over

By Deb Kornegay, 03/20/19, 11:15AM EDT


As you may have seen, the U.S. Center for Safe Sport has created a new requirement that all athletes, age 18 or older, must complete the U110 to be in the field of play.  The course is free and must be completed prior to March 23, 2019.  This is a mandate from the USOC for all National Governing Bodies, not just USA Gymnastics. 


USA Gymnastics will not begin auditing athlete membership records for compliance until April 23, 2019. This is after L9/10 Regionals but before E/W and JO Nationals, Level 6/7/8 Regionals, and Xcel Regionals.  Please have your athletes who are 18 and over complete U110  immediately.  An athlete who qualifies to any Level 9 East, JO National Championship, Level 6/7/8 Regionals, or Xcel  Regionals  will not be allowed to compete in that competition without completing this course by March 23, 2019
