USA Gymnastics University

A Message from USA Gymnastics:

I wanted to take a moment to share with you the USA Gymnastics University.
Please take a moment to view the NEW website as we are “Redefining Gymnastics Education.”
Not only will you have an opportunity to achieve certifications but will act as a resource for the gymnastics community.

USA Gymnastics University has also released NEW courses
· R103: School Age: Hands on Training HOTSA (this course is for recreational coaches and includes discounted pricing for member clubs)
· W200: Development Coaches course: Hands on Training HOTD (for women’s Level 1-4 pre team and team coaches)

Please feel free to contact myself and anyone in the education department to assist your state and area with any educational opportunities.
You will see below the most current live course schedule. We ask for your support in posting this information pertinent to your area on your state and regional websites.

I will be at National Congress and if you too are attending, ask for an opportunity to meet with you, explain the university, and discuss courses and products that would meet the needs of your community.
