We're one week into 2018 and have already seen some amazing gymnastics in both club and NCAA! This weekend we've got five competitions, one of which contains both a club and college portion.
Elevate the Stage is an exciting series of gymnastics competitions and we will be live-streaming every location that contains an NCAA component! To kick off the series, No. 2 Utah, No. 4 UCLA, Washington, and Stanford will meet for an exciting quad competition on a podium stage. Utah and UCLA are coming off of great season openers — both were at home, and will be looking to continue their momentum for a strong road score. Stanford has a meet on Monday, January 8, and Washington will be opening their season in Reno and will look to make a splash right off the bat.
Note: We will have live streams of all four events along with a fifth highlight stream including commentary from Sam Peszek and Rose Kibala.
