TOPs Program Overview

TOPS (Talent Opportunity Program), is a talent search and educational program for female gymnasts ages 7-10 and their coaches. During the months of June and July gymnasts age 7-10 are evaluated on physical abilities at the state or regional level. These dates are set by your TOPS State Manager in conjunction with USA Gymnastics.

From there, athletes are invited to participate in the National TOPS test that is conducted in the month of October. Gymnasts will be evaluated on the same physical abilities tests along with some basic gymnastics skills. Athletes are then invited to participate in the National TOPS Training Camp which takes place in December of each year. Additional information can be found in the links in the left menu.
