Help CA Gymnastics
On behalf of over two hundred and fifty gymnastics centers across the state, we are seeking the reopening and reclassification of California Gymnastics Centers.
Recognizing that gymnastics centers are a distinctive part of our economy, it is our belief that less restrictive guidelines can be developed by the State of California which would allow us to restart operations in a manner that maintains the safety of our participants, coaches, parents and community at large.
We respectfully request that gymnastics centers be reclassified independent of gym/fitness centers giving our industry the opportunity it deserves to restart successfully and safely again.

Hello SoCal Gymnastics
I hope all of you and your families healthy! With the endless barrage of changes that the COVID-19 pandemic continuers to impose on. our families, lives, and businesses, I am pleased to announce that the SoCal State Committee will proceed with planning a 2021 Spring Season. I am aware that there are obstacles to consider when planning for competition in this pandemic. It is my strong belief that if we all worked together we can find a way for our industry to overcome and adapt in these trying times.

CEO Li Li Leung opened the 2020 USA Gymnastics National Congress, which was held virtually August 8-9, with a short address that outlined key organizational initiatives and goals for the sport and community.

2020 Fall Season
SoCal has cancelled the 2020 Fall Compulsory Season and instead will be offering a 2021 Spring Compulsory Season.
With counties’ varying re-opening dates, a Fall Season will impact a club’s timeline to SAFELY prepare for a return to competition. In addition, meet site venues for qualification and championships are currently unavailable, and conforming to social distancing requirements will impact the financial feasibility of such events.
Because there is no safe, logical, and equitable way to host Fall 2020 Competitions, we will instead give the compulsory athletes an opportunity to compete all the way to a State Championship level in the Spring Season.
2021 Competition Season
The SoCal 2021 Competition Calendar is being organized! As you plan your event, keep in mind that there will be a Spring Compulosy State Championship Meet!
