We Need Your Help!!!! UIC Gymnastics

Hi Gopher Gymnastics Fans,

Many of you may have already heard that UIC (Illinois - Chicago) has announced they will be dropping both the Men's and Women's Gymnastics teams at the end of the 2019 Season. UIC just hosted the best NCAA Championships in many many years and the Athletic Director made this announcement 8 days after all the gymnasts were back on campus to start the academic year. Very bad timing.

Thank you to Dale Bullivant and North Shore Gymnastics for hosting the 2015 Regional Future Stars testing and Regional Clinic. We had record number of athletes attend both events.

A special thanks also goes to CJ Maestas from the USOTC for being the guest athlete of this event and to Andrei Kan of Swiss Turners Gymnastics for being the Master Clinician. The weekend was also highlighted by Coach Burns and his University of Minnesota Athletes there working with those Junior athletes.
