WHAT IS REGIONAL’S?

Regionals is a competition between some of the most talented gymnasts in a region. We here at Emerald City, are a part of REGION 3 gymnastics. That means, we compete with the states of, Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Wyoming.  Since our gym has both competitive girls, and boys, I’m going to split this information into 2 sections for my own sanity 😊

GIRLS

Levels, 7, 8, 9 10 & Xcel gold, platinum, and diamond are the only levels where you can qualify to regional’s. Your score at the state meet decides if you qualify, or not. Each level will either take a percentage of girls that compete at state meet, or have a qualifying score for regional’s

 Dsc2002 Opt.

BOYS

Levels, 6, 7,8 ,9 ,10, JD1, JD2 are the only levels where you can qualify to regional’s. A certain allotment from state is chosen to go to regional’s for each level.

 

Isn’t that a lot of fun info? But really, it’s great to learn how the gymnastics world runs and all the requirements for these higher-level meets. We have had both girls and boys qualify for regional’s this year as well as past years. It’s a huge accomplished for an athlete to qualify and we are so excited to have our athletes participate!
