The meet has welcomed gymnasts from all over the US to include teams from as far north as Vermont and Maine, south to Florida west to Colorado, as well as teams from Bermuda. Generally there are 2 full days of level 9 and 10 competition including 400 plus Level 9 and 10 competitors, making it one of the top high level meets in the country. Do not miss out on all the fun!
