USAGymnastics Updates:

Good morning.

I would like to send out some reminders and updates that you will find very helpful as we approach Championship season:

Academic All-American Recognition Award Application

Please highlight the 2018 Academic All-American Award on your website with a link to the information.  Also, shoot out an email to your coaches asking them to get with their high school athletes to see if they are eligible to apply for recognition.  Since making the Academic All-American Recognition Award application an online submission, it has been a great success.  In 2017, we had over 500 submissions – a record!  Here is the link:  https://usagym.org/pages/men/pages/academic_allamerican.html.  Note that the deadline for submission is February 15, so getting the information out to the community is time sensitive.

State Championships High School Results

Do not forget to email me the high school results from your State Championships for posting.  The High School Manual, https://usagym.org/PDFs/Men/MemUpdates/HSManual.pdf, covers all aspects of capturing and reporting High School results within your USA Gymnastics State Championships, but should you have any questions regarding the High School Program, please contact Dennis.

Apparel Update

In a recent turn of events, USA Gymnastics no longer has a relationship with Under Armour. We are very excited about the interest among other reputable apparel partners to sponsor our National Governing Body. However, in the interim, please follow the below guidelines to ensure your State/Region is in compliance with the current National Office practices:

State and Regional Apparel Guidelines – updated January 19, 2018 & in effect until further notice from USA Gymnastics.

  • NON-COMPETITIVE APPAREL OPTIONS:
    • Knowing that many of you have a significant amount of Under Armor(UA) branded apparel from the past couple of years, for the remaining competitive season, it is okay to continue to wear UA branded items.
    • As States and Regions are placing apparel orders for next season (2018-2019):
      • First option would be to choose our very valued and important National Partner, GK.
      • The second option at this time is to choose unbranded apparel.
    • Once a new apparel partner is named, the above guidelines will change, and we will communicate those guidelines as soon as possible.
  • COMPETITIVE APPAREL OPTIONS:
    • There is no significant change in guidelines for competitive apparel.
    • GK apparel
    • non-branded apparel

If you have any further questions regarding apparel or any sponsorship questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Adrienne Evans, Marketing Manager, at aevans@usagym.org or (317) 829-5465.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact anyone on the Men’s Staff.

Have a wonderful day!
