The 2019 Women’s Junior Olympic National Championships is being hosted by:
USA Gymnastics, Visit Indy, Indiana Sports Corp and Sports Indiana
The Junior Olympic National Championships is the culmination event for the competitive season. The competition features twelve age divisions (Junior A, Junior B, Junior C, Junior D, Junior E, Junior F, Senior A, Senior B, Senior C and Senior D, Senior E, Senior F), which are determined by birth date. These gymnasts are vying to become Junior Olympic national champions in the all-around, as well as in all four events: vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise.
USA Gymnastics has eight regions, and the top seven gymnasts in each age division from each region’s Regional Championships advance to nationals. The winning Regions will also be determined at the conclusion of the competition. The top four all-around athletes in each of the twelve age-divisions are named to the 2019 Junior Olympic National Team.
The U.S. Junior Olympic National Championships is one of the national championships of USA Gymnastics, the sport’s national governing body in the United States. Many Junior Olympic champions have gone on to make the U.S. National Team and represent the United States in international competition and/or to compete in collegiate gymnastics. Many of the country’s top gymnasts are former participants in the Junior Olympic program, including 2012 Olympic team champions Jordyn Wieber and Kyla Ross, 2009 World vault champion Kayla Williams, 2008 Olympic team silver-medalists Shawn Johnson and Samantha Peszek, and 2004 Olympic team silver-medalist Courtney McCool, to name a few.
The hotel booking link will be available February 1, 2019.
All athletes who have qualified to JO Nationals or Eastern/Western Championships MUST link to the following web site to complete their bios. These surveys are used by USA Gymnastics for information and promotional purposes, including posting pictures and bios of the winners. The National Championships Meet Hosts may also use these bios to publicize human interest stories about the athletes.
Most importantly, it allows us to provide information on the high school-age athletes to the NCAA* coaches in attendance. Even if you are already signed with a university, we are asking you to complete the survey, as it’s important that the collegiate coaches are aware of who has already committed to a university.
* Information about all high school–age athletes will be distributed to the NCAA coaches in attendance. Any information regarding GPA, SAT/ACT scores, as well as personal information such as addresses and phone numbers will be considered confidential, and will only be given to accredited college coaches.
