USAG: http://usa-gymnastics.org AAU: http://aausports.org Not all states have AAU. Apparently you can get a scholarship under the AAU program too (check out post http://www.gymchat.com/messageboards/viewtopic.php?t=25016 - scholarship at Division I college, but then opts to go Division III because the coaches were mean), so it must mean you can go to the level 10 level at least.

There's a video on the USOTC now on the AT&T blue room sports: http://attblueroom.com/sports/teamusa/mediaplayer.php?pid=112544 "Episode 9 - Back at the USOTC" It is an awesome facility. Lots of sports use it, including men's gymnastics and trompoline gymnastics too.

Like when Shawn is finished with her floor routine and comes down the steps from the podium, Nastia Luikin's dad/coach congratulates her, and Shawn looks at Nastia who is concentrating on her floor routine coming up next and notices that and gives[ Read More... ]
