NCAA College Gymnastics Recruiting
How to get Recruited and be a Collegiate Gymnast
Our gymnastics recruiting service can help you get recruited and be part of the NCAA gymnastics championships. Our website is full of information and resources to help you work your way through the recruitment process.
A good place to start is the Gymnastics Scholarships page.
You might be the best gymnast at your school, but if you’re not in the top 3 percent, then don’t expect the NCAA gymnastics coaches to come to you. You have to make it happen by applying to as many colleges as possible. This is where we come into the picture. We will prepare a professional athletic profile on your behalf and send it to every NCAA gymnastics coach in Division I and II. We can also send your athletic profile to NAIA colleges as well.
Remember, you won’t make your dream come true if you don’t do everything you possibly can to get recruited. You must have a detailed professional athletic resume prepared, and you must get it into the hands of the NCAA gymnastics coaches.
We do this for you. It’s fast, efficient, and above all, it allows you to compare gymnastic scholarship offers from many different colleges.
College Gymnastics History
NCAA women’s gymnastics was one of the original nine sports that the NCAA introduced at the NCAA women’s championships in 1981–1982. The inaugural championship was won by the University of Utah which still dominates women’s gymnastics.
Teams and individual athletes qualify through preliminary competition in five regions. The winning team in each region advances and seven other teams are selected as at-large entries on the basis of their regional scores. The top 12 competitors in each event who are not on the qualifying teams also advance to the finals.
The first men’s NCAA gymnastics championship was held in 1938 which the University of Chicago hosted and won.
College gymnastics grew in popularity in the 1960s, and in 1965, the NCAA found that it had to conduct qualifying meets.
