PURCHASE YOUR AAU MEMBERSHIP BY OCTOBER 1ST!

We are making a big change for this upcoming competitive year. Starting this 2021-2022 season, we will no longer be competing under USA Gymnastics. As some of you know, there has been a lot of scandal, betrayal and abuse that was allowed under USAG in the elite level.  As more and more new information comes to light regarding these situations, we no longer feel that Gemini should be associated with USAG. With that being said, this year we will compete under AAU (Amateur Athletic Union). It has been around for 126 years, and their motto is “Sports for all, forever.” Here is some general information about competing under AAU gymnastics:

  • Xcel levels are THE SAME under AAU as USAG
  • Coaches will take a “Positive Coaching Alliance” class to coach under AAU
  • Registration fee per individual athlete is $14 for the year
  • We will still compete 4 meets during the season- meet schedule will be announced as soon as we know
  • All meets will be local
  • State meet will still take place with an option to compete at a National Meet
