An update for all Elite athletes, coaches and clubs:
The 2018 T&T World Championships selection procedures that were previously drafted by the Elite/Program Committee have not yet been approved by USA Gymnastics Board of Directors, as required by the Bylaws. Those procedures had been scheduled to be approved by the Board on February 7th; however, due to the recent resignation of USA Gymnastics Board of Directors we are unable to submit the procedures to the Board for the required approval until an interim Board has been seated.
As a result, the 2018 Winter Classic will unfortunately no longer be a selection event for the 2018 World Championships. The selection process will be revised, and the 2018 World Championships selection procedures will be distributed to athletes and coaches as soon as they are updated and have the proper Board approval.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
We still encourage all Elite athletes to compete in this event as a key part of the 2018 US Elite season, and results from 2018 Winter Classic may be considered as part of the Discretionary Criteria for the 2018 World Championships selection.
This competition will still be relevant to selection procedures for 2018 World Age Group Competitions.
