The Junior National Development Team is determined through the use of a "Future Stars" National Championships/Evaluation held in the fall of each year. The competition targets the 10, 11, and 12-year old age groups of athletes and involves athletes being judged/evaluated on the six events using a basic skills compulsory routine composed of approximately ten basic skills elements placed together in routine form. In addition, there are events that involve evaluation on trampoline, flexibility, strength and body positions. The evaluations are done by a coach/Junior National Coaching Staff member and a NGJA judge working together to produce a score based on technique and execution.

Congratulations to Region 9’s Reid Holbrook for being named the JO NAL on Vault for the 2020 and 2021 seasons. The JO NALs (Junior Olympic National Apparatus Leader) serve as the head judge at Future Stars, The Blackjack Championship, and Junior Nationals each year. It’s a tremendous amount of work which Region 9 judges have had the honor of performing for many years. Dean Schott, Bob Busse, Mike Brey, John Scanlan, Eric Cramer, and Tom McNamee have previously served as JO NALs. (Source: region9-gymnastics.com)
