Final Selection Event qualifiers updated
posted on 08/20/2009

For the Final Selection Event (FSE):

  1. Only athletes who are on the Official List of Qualifiers are allowed to enter the Final Selection Event. Athletes who previously appeared on the list but who did not qualify to J.O. or Visa Championships have been removed. Also, athletes were added who qualified by petition or by being named to the Junior National Team.

  2. Athletes may only enter the FSE in the event(s) in which they qualified.

  3. Athletes MUST have a valid U.S. passport to enter the FSE. The International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) requires all delegations to the World Championships and World Age-Group Championships to have an FIG license to compete. The FIG has set September 15 as the date we must give them a list of potential team members with passport numbers, therefore, we must have your passport number no later than September 15 if you plan to go to St. Petersburg. If you do not have a passport, please apply immediately and expedite the process so you will not miss the opportunity to be on the team.

  4. All athletes, coaches and spectators who plan to travel with the official delegation to St. Petersburg MUST bring their passports to Las Vegas. National Travel Systems will collect all passports for the delegation and take them to obtain visas for everyone. In order to make this happen, you must use another form of ID for your airfare to/from Las Vegas.
