Rankings: Club Gyms With J.O. Qualifiers Committed To Top-25 NCAA Teams

Last week, we ranked the impressive list of 286 clubs that had qualifiers at 2017 J.O. National Championships. Now, it's time to check out how these clubs stack up in terms of their gymnasts' NCAA commitments to top-tier schools.

The rankings take into account the number of gymnasts from each club who are committed to top 25-ranked NCAA schools, the final 2017 rankings of the respective NCAA teams, and the overall number of gymnasts who qualified from each club. See the master list of commits from JOs here.

North Stars topped the charts with having nine of their JOs-qualified gymnasts committed to top 25-ranked schools. WOGA had six, and Cincinnati Gymnastics had four.

What's The Difference: The Tkatchev Family

You know those skills where the gymnast swings around the high bar, lets go of it, flies impossibly high in the air with her legs perfectly positioned and her toes perfectly pointed and then catches it on the other side? Those are the Tkatchev skills, a family of skills done on the uneven bars with a seemingly exponential number of names and nuances. Here’s the gym-nerd’s guide to knowing your Tkatchev from your Ray, Galante, Ricna and all of the rest of them, because knowing those tiny, tricky differences makes watching gymnastics even more of a delight. 

SEC Gymnastics Preview: Individuals To Watch In 2019

The SEC is known for having the top gymnastics teams in the NCAA, and with that comes some of the top individual gymnasts. Now that the NCAA Championships will only include eight teams instead of 12, some teams that are used to contending and advancing to NCAAs will end up sending only individual gymnasts to the national postseason. Therefore individual competition may be more competitive than ever before, especially in the ultra-competitive SEC.

Big Ten Power Michigan Starts Their Gymnastics Season Strong At Exhibition

The University of Michigan Women’s Gymnastics team is usually the team to beat in the Big Ten, and if their exhibition meet on Saturday, December 2, is any indication of how their year will go, this season will be no exception. The team squared off with three other Michigan teams at 2 PM in the Crisler Center, marking the fifth year in a row Michigan has competed against Eastern Michigan for an exhibition meet in this location. The Wolverines competed against Central Michigan as recently as last spring but has not faced off against Western Michigan since 2011.
