Regional VIII and USAG Update

2016 Region VIII Championship Allotment Information

Once again it is that time of year that we need to get your gyms number of athletes at each level.  This form will serve as BOTH YOUR GYM ALLOTMENT INFORMATION AS WELL AS YOUR STATE CHAMPIONSHIP ENTRY FORM.  All level 4 – 10 athletes in your club that will be competing at the state championship need to be listed on this form. This information will be used to determine the number of athletes your respective state has at the 2016 Region 8 Championship.  The state allotment numbers are determined prior to state championships based on the numbers from the sheets returned to the state chairman NOT the number of athletes at state championship.  In addition, the number of Level 8 – 10 athletes will help to determine Region 8 allotment for the 2016 JO National Championship as per the JOPC mandate.

2016 General Club Allotment And State Meet Entry Form
Form Must Be Emailed to your State Chairman no later than Monday, February 1

A gym that does not turn in this form to their state chairman by the required date, will void their athletes opportunity to attend the 2016 Region 8 Championship not their athletes opportunity to attend State Championship.   (Late entries will void an athletes opportunity to attend the 2016 Region 8 Championship.)

USA Gymnastics State High School Championship

The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and USA Gymnastics, have joined forces to expand boys high school gymnastics opportunities across the country. To complement the existing state high school gymnastics programs, USA Gymnastics is activating its national network to create a state championships framework that works in concert with local high schools, school districts and state associations. The USA Gymnastics Men’s Program has also produced a “How To” manual to help clubs establish a High School Boys Program for all of their competitive High School age athletes. The Boys High School Manual covers all of the steps necessary to establish a gymnastics program relationship with local high schools and school districts.

We are excited to announce that this year each state in Region VIII will  be hosting a State High School Gymnastics Championship in conjunction with your state championship as part of USA Gymnastics High School Gymnastics initiative.
