USA Gymnastics is the national governing body for the sport of gymnastics in the USA. It gets this designation from the International Olympic Committee and the International Gymnastics Federation. USA Gymnastics sets the rules and policies that govern gymnastics in this country. Training and selecting the US Teams for the Olympics and World Championships are just two of the many responsibilities of USA Gymnastics.
The ultimate goal in the sport is to become a USA National Gymnastics Team member. To become a member, a gymnast must first work his or her way through a series of qualifying meets. The preliminary meets range from USA Gymnastics-sanctioned competitions organized by private clubs, to state, regional and national qualification meets. Each meet gives the athlete the opportunity to meet minimum qualification scores and/or placement requirements established by USA Gymnastics. Gymnasts meeting the requirements are then eligible to compete in their respective US National Championships, the most prestigious and significant competition of the year.
This is a competitive team program that mainly derives from the recreational gymnastics program. Young team groups are formed at an early age and develop the skills needed to compete at the local, state, regional and national levels. USA Gymnastics is the governing body that sets forth the rules and policies for competition. Here at Shenandoah Tumblers, Inc., we begin competing our girls/boys at level 3 and they then have the ability to advance through the elite level of competition. It is at this point where Olympic hopefuls and college gymnast are produced. These gymnasts can train as much as 16 hours per week during the competitive season and attend upwards of 15 competitions.
