HUNTSVILLE, Texas, May 27, 2015 – The 2015 American Classic is scheduled for this Saturday, May 30, at 3 p.m. CT at the USA Gymnastics National Team Training Center at the Karolyi Ranch, an official U.S. Olympic Training Site. The competition is one of two competitive qualifiers for the 2015 P&G Gymnastics Championships, USA Gymnastics’ national championships, in Indianapolis, Aug. 13-16.

Women’s gymnastics has a variety of paths for athletes to qualify to the P&G Championships, including by earning a 54.000 for seniors or a 52.500 for juniors in the all-around at either the American Classic or Secret U.S. Classic. The Secret U.S. Classic is scheduled for July 25 at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Ill., and is the final opportunity to advance to the P&G Championships. Senior athletes can also qualify by earning a three-event score of 41.250 or a two-event score of 28.000 at either of these two events.

Team members and alternates for the 2014 World Championships and 2015 Pan American Games (July 10-26, Toronto, Canada) are automatically qualified to the P&G Championships.
