INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Feb. 6, 2017 — The 2017 Secret U.S. Classic, the final qualifying event for women's gymnastics for the P&G Gymnastics Championships, will be staged at the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Ill., for the fourth time. Scheduled for July 29 at 6:30 p.m., the Secret U.S. Classic features some of the USA's top female gymnasts, and tickets go on sale Feb. 10 at 10 a.m. CT.
 
Many of the country's top gymnasts use the Secret U.S. Classic as a final tune-up for the P&G Gymnastics Championships, while other gymnasts are hoping to qualify for the national championships. The P&G Championships is the national championships for USA Gymnastics and determines the U.S. champions and the U.S. National Team. The 2017 P&G Championships takes place Aug. 17-20 at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. For more information, go to pgchamps.com.
 
The July 29 competition schedule is 1 p.m. for the junior session and 6:30 p.m. for the senior session. All times are Central and subject to change.
 
All-session ticket packages, which include admission to the junior and senior elite sessions along with the Hopes Championships, range from $79-$129; prices vary according to competition session and location.

The Hopes Championships takes place Friday, July 28, the day prior to the Secret U.S. Classic. The Hopes Championships has two age groups, 10-11 year-old and the 12-13 year-old, and athletes advance to the Hopes Championships from the Hopes Classic (July 7 in Huntsville, Texas, at the USA Women’s National Team Training Center at the Karolyi Ranch, an official U.S. Olympic Training Site). The top 18 from each age group qualify to the Hopes Championships assuming each athlete achieves a minimum qualifying score. The Hopes classification is just below the elite level, and the Hopes Championships, previously known as the U.S. Challenge, is the culmination of the Hopes athletes’ season.
