The attached form has been approved by legal, and is ready to be sent out to Women’s Program membership. This form is intended for any high school aged athlete (grad year 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023) that is interested in college gymnastics. Below is the timeline for this project:
4/15: NCAA tab on website live with athletes listed
Once the form is received back to me (no later than April 10th), athlete names will be added to the list for the website as well as passed onto my NCAA contact. Once the webpage is set-up and live, I anticipate it to look similar to the current National Team webpage. There will be a hyperlink attached to each athlete’s name that will take you to their online bio, which is why it is so important that these be filled out. Athletes will be able to enter in any social media webpages specific to them (personal webpage, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube). These will prove helpful to recruiters, as they will still be able to see any videos of routines or skills that have been uploaded.
On the night these girls would have competed in their senior session of the WV State Meet, the State would like to recognize them. Girls, this is an unusual time, and we would have loved to have watched you tonight. However, we know you are all headed down bright paths and wish you good luck in your future.

I wish I could put into words just how essential your presence alone is in the gym. Your perseverance, work ethic, and determination never goes unseen. The fact that you have never given up and worked through so much adversity says so much about you. Your leadership will be missed along with your contagious smile and humble, caring personality. Your Flipstarz family wants to wish you the best of luck at Fairmont State. We cannot wait to follow you on your next journey. All of your coaches are so proud of you and we know you will continue to have a positive impact on all of your teammates; past, present, and future. You have changed the lives of others just by simply being in theirs. We will miss you and love you so much! Your Flipstarz Coaches and Teammates
As my niece, I can’t thank you enough for giving me the opportunity to fall in love with the sport all over again. I will cherish every memory and will never take a moment for granted. I’ll be forever grateful for the time I was able to spend with you in and out of the gym. I am so excited for you to experience collegiate athletics. I know you will succeed at anything and everything the future throws at you. I’m so proud of you! Love you! Chelsi
Hello Region 7, In light of the recent development regarding the announcement from USA Gymnastics cancelling sanctions through the end of March (this is across all disciplines) we wanted to touch base with you to let you know we will be discussing options for rescheduling State meets that do not have qualification implications. We are in the process of scheduling a meeting to discuss the logistics of how athletes will qualify to the Level 8, 9 and 10 Regional meets now that there will not be a State meet. This has been a very trying time for all of us and we are doing our best to make decisions that fit all aspects of the dynamics this situation presents. Please know, as always, the participation in any of these events is your choice. Our current action plan consist of the following: 1. I will be having daily/weekly conference calls with USA Gymnastics officials and all Regional Chairs to continue to discussing the future of Easterns/Westerns and JO Nationals, as well as to update them on our Regional meet qualification processes as they develop. In the event that April sanctions are also cancelled we will also being discussing plans to determine qualification to these National level competitions. 2. I will also be holding daily/weekly conference calls with all SACC’s and Regional personal to discuss the logistics of the rescheduling State meets where possible. At this point, the plan is to move forward with the Regional meets until we are told we can not move forward either by the venue, the meet hosts or any higher power that can shut us down.
We are aware of the complexity of the situation, we are attempting to be proactive in managing and decision making as we move forward. Keep in mind this is an evolving situation, no one knows the extent to which this will affect our meets going forward. That said, rest assured we will do our best to organize the competitions within our States and Regions as best we can. Please give us some time to develop a plan and we will inform you of those plans as frequently and quickly possible. We appreciate your patience, your flexibility and please remember to wash your hands 🙂 Visit your Regional website (information regarding Regional meets will always go here 1st), State websites, Region 7 facebook page and all other social media available within your State for updates as well. Jennifer Bortz. Region 7RACC
