Milwaukee Lands 2017 USA Gymnastics Championships
Scheduled for June 27-July 2, Junior Olympic competition will be staged at the Wisconsin Center for the entire six days. The junior and senior elite competition will be held at the BMO Harris Bradley Center from June 29-July 1.
“Milwaukee will be the perfect host for this event,” said Steve Penny, president of USA Gymnastics. “Summertime is a beautiful season in Milwaukee and I am sure everyone will enjoy being there.”
Performances in Milwaukee will also determine berths on the junior and senior U.S. National Teams for acrobatic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, and trampoline and tumbling. For rhythmic gymnastics and trampoline and tumbling, the competition will be part of the selection process for the 2017 World Championships.
In addition, the USA Gymnastics Championships will be part of the selection process for the U.S. teams that will compete at the 2017 World Games, the equivalent of the Olympic Games for sports and events not included in the Olympics
The Junior Olympic division has several different levels, and national titles will be awarded for each level and age group for each discipline.
VISIT Milwaukee is working in conjunction with USA Gymnastics on the championships. This is the event’s first trip to Milwaukee, which hosted the 2003 U.S. Championships for men’s and women’s gymnastics.
“Milwaukee is excited to welcome the USA Gymnastics Championships. As a great sports destination with passionate sports fans, we look forward to giving the athletes a memorable experience,” said Paul Upchurch, president & CEO of Visit Milwaukee.
The competition schedule will be available in the near future and tickets will go on sale in 2017.
