USA Gymnastics - Most National Titles

Prior to the formation of USA Gymnastics, the national governing body for the sport, gymnasts competed for the AAU. Please refer to the following notes when classifying the champion:

From 1963-70, separate AAU and USA Gymnastics champions were recognized so two champions may be listed for the same year.
