    Mini-Congress

    The 2022 Alabama USA Gymnastics Mini Congress was held at Mountain Brook Gymnastics on June 24-25. There were sessions for several tracks including Rec, Pre-School, School Age, Tumbling, Compulsory, Ninja, Business and Management, and Health and Athlete Wellness. On Friday, we had the R103 Hands on Training course taught by Sandi McGee, our National Instructor from Geronimo Gymnastics.

    Over 60 coaches, judges, and gym owners attended over the two days of Mini-Congress. Many thanks to our presenters and clinicians for their time and effort to provide great content for those attending. Thank you to: Sandi McGee Geronimo Gymnastics), Cheree Baker (Prattville Y), Helen Nabors (Mountain Brook), James Linderholm (Huntsville Gymnastics Center), Sarah Smith (Huntsville Gymnastics Center), Gayli Craver (State Judging Director), Jeff Osborn (Geronimo Gymnastics), Pam Kitchen (Region 8 Xcel Chair), Lisa Nondorf (Planet Gymnastics), and a special thanks to Dr. Sloan Beard (The FARM). All of them were outstanding!

    We also would like to thank Mountain Brook Gymnastics for allowing us to use their facility for our Mini-Congress and to Leila Owen for staying with us on Friday in case we needed anything.

    It was a great educational and networking experiences as we had coaches with all experience levels.

    Mark your calendars for the 2023 Alabama USA Gymnastics Mini-Congress as we have it tentatively scheduled for May 19-20, 2023.


    Awards Reception

    We took a break on Friday evening at Mini-Congress to recognize many of our Alabama USA Gymnastics athletes and teams at our Awards Reception at Beeson Hall at the Harbert Center in downtown Birmingham. The hall was beautifully decorated by Sarah Smith and Sandi McGee and we had a wonderful program edited and printed by Jessica Sedgewick.

    All our 227 regional qualifiers were invited to the event and 97 attended along with almost 200 family members and other guests. Also invited were our 2022 Graduating Seniors and several of our 21 seniors were present as well.

    We also awarded our Club of the Year banners to Armory Athletics (Compulsory), JamJev Gymnastics (Xcel), and to Mountain Brook Gymnastics (Optional).

    It was a chance for us to celebrate and honor our athletes and clubs for their season and all of us on your Alabama USA Gymnastics State Administrative Committee are so proud of them and their accomplishments this past season.

    Mark your calendar for the 2023 Alabama USA Gymnastics Awards Reception that we have scheduled for May 20, 2023.

    Alabama USA Gymnastics Athlete Registration Fees Due

    Since this is the time of year that most of you have your athletes renew and your parents pay their annual fees to the club, this is just a reminder that the registration fee for Alabama USA Gymnastics for all compulsory and fall athletes is due annually by September 1 for Compulsory athletes and due by January 1 for Optional/Xcel athletes. If a gymnast changes levels or competes compulsory and Xcel or Optional in the same competitive season, they only owe the registration fee one time per competitive season.
