The 2021-2022 Membership Season is Now Open: When professional and instructor members renew their membership this season, they will find a change from the traditional membership options.
USA Gymnastics recognized the need to provide a membership program that was a bit easier to understand. We are eliminating the broad membership terms of "professional" and "instructor" and are replacing these terms with new membership categories that more accurately identify the roles each member serves within the sport.
While the membership renewal process will not change, the membership selection process will appear slightly different. When professional and instructor members renew memberships this season, they will select from member categories such as competitive coach, recreational coach, judge, club owner, meet director, etc.
Additionally, membership opportunities will now be available for volunteers, medical providers and photographer/videographers who may be participating in USA Gymnastics sanctioned events.
Click here for full details.
New Course Requirements: This season, USA Gymnastics will introduce two new educational courses that certain membership roles will be required to complete as a condition of membership. Click here to review which roles will be required to complete the U112: Tough Coaching or Emotional Abuse course and the U113: USA Gymnastics Safe Sport Policy course.
Congratulations to our Level 9 athletes for a great Regional competition. All 3 gymnasts qualified for Level 9 Eastern Nationals.

USA GYMNASTICS ANNOUNCES NEW TRANSGENDER AND NON-BINARY INCLUSION POLICY
INDIANAPOLIS, November 17, 2020 – USA Gymnastics today introduced an updated policy for transgender and non-binary inclusion. The policy is intended to promote a safe and inclusive environment for athletes of all gender identities, while protecting the privacy of trans and non-binary athletes.
“Our top priority is and must always be the safety of our athletes, including their emotional and psychological safety,” said USA Gymnastics CEO Li Li Leung. “Inclusivity plays an important role in creating safe and welcoming environments for our community members, and this policy will help ensure athletes who identify as transgender or non-binary feel at home in our sport.”
The policy, which is based on current medical science and consistent with anti-discrimination legislation, makes several changes to the 2015 policy, including:
While USA Gymnastics’ updated policy will apply to nearly all member athletes, ‘International Track’ gymnasts – defined as those who, in the next 12 months, intend to qualify for the Junior or Senior National Teams, who may represent USA Gymnastics internationally, or who qualify to any event where a National Team is selected – will continue to be governed by the International Olympic Committee’s policies.
To create the most inclusive and effective policy possible, USA Gymnastics’ officials and members of the organization’s Athlete Health and Wellness Council conducted a review of available research on transgender athletes as well as best practices and existing inclusion policies adopted by national and international sport bodies. Much of that research is available under the resources section of the policy. USA Gymnastics also solicited input directly from the transgender athlete community.
“We are grateful to the members of the Athlete Health and Wellness Council as well as those in our gymnastics community who contributed their time and expertise to this policy,” said Kim Kranz, USA Gymnastics’ Chief of Athlete Wellness. “This policy is part of our commitment to help create an inclusive environment within our sport. Everyone should have the opportunity to participate in gymnastics with the knowledge that they will be safe and have their dignity respected.”
USA Gymnastics announces ‘USAG Development Program’ as new name for the Junior Olympic Program
INDIANAPOLIS, October 21, 2020 – USA Gymnastics today announced that “USA Gymnastics Development Program” will be the new name for the development program formerly known as the Junior Olympic program.
USA Gymnastics made the decision to change the program name following increased restrictions around the use of the title ‘Junior Olympic’ earlier this year. No substantive programming changes will accompany the change in name.
“USA Gymnastics remains committed to supporting athletes of all levels across all disciplines as they strive to reach their goals in and out of the gym,” said Stefanie Korepin, Chief Programs Officer. “Under the USA Gymnastics Development Program, we will continue to provide the same top-tier competitive structure and programming initiatives that our community members have come to expect, while looking for new ways to innovate and adapt, as we explore opportunities to improve the gymnastics experience for all participants.”
This summer, USA Gymnastics issued a crowdsourcing request to the gymnastics community and received hundreds of suggestions for renaming the program. Though the organization held a public vote in August and announced a winning submission, concerns about the name’s acronym ultimately led USA Gymnastics to opt instead for another popular submission, the USA Gymnastics Development Program.
If you have been wondering about the Executive Leadership Team (ELT) and who they are, feel free to visit this page for individual bios, as well as a “Meet the Team” video from Virtual National Congress.
USA Gymnastics is excited to share that an Athletes’ Council webpage has been created under ‘About’ on USAG’s website (link below). Visitors can learn more about the role of the AC, how it is structured, and who currently represents each discipline. More importantly, athletes will be able to quickly and easily identify who their representatives are, and we are working to add contact information to streamline the process of getting in touch with AC reps. To increase transparency, meeting minutes will also be available from this page.
In order to learn from the mistakes of the past and the mishandling of the horrific abuse perpetrated by Larry Nassar, we must listen with open hearts to Maggie’s story, and the experiences of other survivors – so that we can better understand the impact it had, and the circumstances that led to it and enabled it for too long.
Because of the bravery of Maggie and other survivors who have come forward, there have been transformational reforms across the sport. Within USA Gymnastics, under an entirely new leadership team, we have implemented stronger policies and preventative measures, launched multiple educational efforts, and made sweeping organizational, leadership and personnel changes. Most importantly, we have prioritized changing the sub-culture within our community that allowed this to happen. We owe these survivors an incredible debt of gratitude for sharing their stories, and igniting these changes across the sport.
And yet, despite these changes, we recognize that the work is not done. We must keep listening, keep evolving and keep improving – and we are committed to doing so.
