Our goal is to provide the best training and education with the Future Stars Program. We want to recognize up-and-coming athletes, encourage their continuity and success, and focus on developing skills to progress to the elite levels. The Future Stars Program does not include international competition opportunities. We offer competitive and recreational opportunities to our athletes. Our competitive team will compete at the Region 9, Regional, Sectional and National level. Our competitive team athletes will be able to compete at the Olympic Games.

Future Stars

The Future Stars Program is an athlete development and education program. The Future Stars Program consists of five age groups: 8-year-olds, 9-year-olds, 10-year-olds, 11-year-olds, and 12-year-olds, who perform selected skills and compulsory routines on the six men's events plus trampoline, strength and flexibility evaluations. The 8 and 9-year-old divisions participate up to the Regional level while the 10, 11, and 12-year old divisions can qualify to the National level.

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. (Source: usagym.org)
