The Future Stars National Championships showcase the USA's top 10-, 11-, and 12-year-old male gymnasts who perform special Future Stars competitive routines. Based on the results at the championships, USA Gymnastics identifies the Junior National Developmental Team, which includes the top 16 gymnasts in both the 10- and 11-year-old divisions and the top 14 gymnasts in the 12-year-old division. The top eight athletes in the 10- and 11-year-old divisions, and the top seven athletes in the 12-year-old division will be invited to a special Future Stars camp to be held at the USOTC next summer. The 2018 Junior Developmental Team is listed below.

In 1996 the Future Stars Program was introduced. The goal of the Future Stars Program is to identify talented athletes, their coaches and clubs and to provide them with educational and training support. The first year the Future Stars program targeted the 10 & 11 year old age group, in 1997 a twelve-year-old age group was added, and in 1998 an 8-9 year old division was included. The Future Stars program uses a special competitive routine format to evaluate the skill, strength and flexibility development of the athlete. These routines are progressive, developmental and educational in nature. The intent is to identify talented athletes and to get them started on the right developmental path to national and international success. The Future Stars program and routines are also designed to enhance and be complimentary to the age group competition program. (Source: championgym.com)

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.

The USA Men's team for the 2018 World Championships is led by our very own Yul Muldauer (Oklahoma University) and USOTC resident athlete Sam Mikulak (University of Michigan). Accumpanying them will be Akash Modi (Stanford University), Colin VanWicklen (Oklahoma University / Cypress Gymnastics), and Alec Yoder (Ohio State University). Allan Bower (oklahoma University will travel as the alternate. (Source: colorado-gymnastics.com)

State

We are proud to say that we have the largest and strongest team program in the state of Kentucky. We offer all of the competitive USAG Women’s Levels (2-10) as well as all of the competitive USAG Men’s Levels (4-10). Women’s levels 2 & 3 compete within the state of Kentucky while Women’s & Men’s levels 4-10 compete mostly within the region (Kentucky, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, & Indiana) with some travel nationally. Our lower levels work on perfecting their basics and technique through our compulsory program with a strong emphasis on skill mastery and excellence. We do this by helping them set goals and challenging them to always aspire to be their best. This approach helps them when they reach the optional levels (7-10) where we aim to help them set their sights on collegiate gymnastics (Level 10). While we understand not every gymnast in our program has aspirations of collegiate gymnastics we help all of our athletes reach their upmost potential; building them up to become healthy, happy & confident adults.

Girls as young as 3.5 years old may try out for one of our developmental teams after being recommended by an instructor or attending our annual tryouts. Our developmental teams focus on technical skill training, as well as further strength and flexibility work to prepare them for higher levels of competitive gymnastics. Our Girls Pre-Teams & Level 1 Teams as well as our Boys Level 3 teams also participate in exhibition style competitions throughout the Louisville area. We have performed in the past at Oxmoor Center, KyDzFest, the Kentucky State Fair, the Gaslight Festival, the Middletown Parade and the Louisville Zoo. All Developmental Team gymnasts also “compete” in the annual Spring & Fall Performance Days as well as both Champion Challenge and Super Bowl Challenge. (Source: championgym.com)
