NYS Gyneral Membership Meeting

The NYS General Membership meeting took place in Providence, RI over the weekend at the Region 6 Congress.  Details on the membership meeting can be found HERE.

The Qualification scores for 2018 are as follows:

Xcel / Level 2 : 30 AA

Level 3/4/5/8/9/10 : 32 AA

Please also note: The annual voting ballot results are heavily taken into account for each State Championship. Judges may officiate at as many State Championships as the Committee determines necessary. There is not a maximum number of State Championships for each judging official.  The NYS Committee has the best interest of the State membership and athletes on hand and has the right to determine the judging officials for the New York State Championship.  No judging officials that serve on the NYS Committee are not involved in deciding the officials at State Championships.


As we enter competition season a friendly reminder on the apparel requirements for coaches from Rules and Policies:

--Dress in attire reflecting the best image of gymnastics. 

--USA Gymnastics prohibits clothing that promotes drug or alcohol use, is vulgar, obscene or worn in a manner that draws attention away from the competitive environment. 

At State meets and above, the coaches' dress code is as follows: 
a. Athletic shoes with rubberized soles. Athletic warm-up pants or "Docker-syle" pants (No jeans). 

b. Athletic or tailored shorts that are of a reasonable length. No holes, tears or short shorts. 

c. Collared shirts, business casual shirts or T-shirts with or without gym logo. (No spaghetti straps, low-cut tops or midriff revealing shirts). 

d. No hats or visors
