Region 5’s Regional Elite Team Program serves the Regional Gymnastics Community as an extension of the National Team Program of USA Gymnastics.
The Regional Elite Team Program adopts the philosophy, policies, directives, training methods, and technical information of the National Team Program for its use as a support program.
The Regional Elite Team Program addresses “Coaches Education” and “Athlete Development”. The following are areas of its main focus:
- The identification and selection of talented athletes and coaches through competition and evaluation.
- The further education of talented athletes and coaches through Training Camps, Clinics, and Workshops.
- Provide guidance and assistance for athletes and coaches with elite performance abilities.
A Regional Coaching Staff helps administer and communicate the directives and technical material stemming from Junior and Senior National Team Camps as well as technical knowledge of the Junior National Coaching Staff.
