Updated Ruling for competitors who are
non-citizens living and training in the US.
Effective immediately, non-citizen athletes who are living in the United States and training in a U.S. gymnastics club will be eligible to compete and receive awards for all USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic sanctioned events including State, Regional, East/West and JO Nationals.
If a non-citizen athlete places in the top four (4) AA at J.O. Nationals, she will receive the award for her All-Around placement, however; she is not eligible to become a member of the US JO National Team. In this instance, the next US citizen in rank order will be placed on the JO National Team.
