The Eastern Championships includes top gymnasts from Regions 5-8 and the Western Championships has the top gymnasts from Regions 1-4. The number of age divisions for each championships was determined by the respective committees.

Below are the top results from each of the age division. Results will continue to be updated throughout the weekend.
