Congratulations to all competitors. It was a TOUGH meet and our gymnasts put on a GREAT performance all across the arena,

Congratulations especially to Jackson Harrison (Arizona State) and Dallas Hale (Texas Armadillos), who qualified to the 2023 USA Gymnastics Championships, in San Jose CA August 24-27, 2023.

Good luck in your pursuit of the coveted national team spots, guys!

Patting ourselves on the back:

GymACT continues to innovate the sport of gymnastics as well as establish standards and traditions. The implementation of new rules brought on improvements benefiting our growing number of teams, individual athletes and the quality of their competitive gymnastics and spectators (enjoyment of the events and better understanding of the rules/scores).

Critics agree: EVERYONE wants to see more crosses on rings! ;)

Second Annual GymACT All Star Championships

We also hosted the second annual GymACT All Star Championships (hosted in tandem with the NAIGC National Festival, in Memphis, TN, March 30, 2023

The virtual competition qualification process made it possible for athletes to participate without added burden of traveling to any additional competitions. 5 athletes from each conference (East and West) were selected to compete in each event at an enthusiastic and well attended session of the NAIGC-hosted event.

Congratulations to all competitors and this year’s bragging rights go to team West: 315.85 (vs. East 310.25).

Arizona State: Back on top!

The team from Arizona State showed strength of numbers AND quality of gymnastics all year around. And their dominance did not waiver as they claimed this years national title. Congratulations to everyone in the program. Well deserved.
