I hope that with cooperation of all the constituents, USA Gymnastics will be s your incoming chairperson of USA Gymnastics it is my pleasure and privilege to wri te an edi torial for the Marchi April issue of USA Gymnastics magazine. Having been involved in gymnastics since 1966 and working with athletes, coaches, judges, club owners, parents and supporters of the sport as a hobby, has always had unbelievable rewards for myself, not only giving kids an opportunity to participate and compete but also allowing me to cultivate friendships Ron Froelich worldwide. USA Gymnastics Chair I am fortunate that I served as a representative of the FIG on the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors for the last two years. It gave me an insight as to how the board works. I hope that with cooperation of all the constituents, USA Gymnastics will be able to come together as a team and work constructively for the benefit of all our sports' disciplines. We all can contribute to the well being of our sport by supporting the disciplines at all levels. It is up to every one of us to promote harmony, teamwork and support for our athletes. Without our athletes we would have nothing to offer going forward.

A

Our coaches and judges continually give of themselves unselfishly and we should support as a team and work them as they prepare and produce winners! constructively for I want to pay tribute to all the the benefit of all our administrators who are an important link in making sure that we can cater to all the issues that sports' disciplines. often plague our sports. Without the support of the club owners, who have an enormous investment, and the continued support of the athletes and coaches, we would be unable to produce the Olympians and World Champions in our sport. We have some way to go since the fantastic success in the Atlanta Olympic Games. However, our athletes certainly improved overall since the World Championships in Tianjin. Our job is to ensure we will be ready for Athens in 2004. In 2003, the USA will host the artistic World Championships in Indianapolis, Indiana. It is an enormous task and we will have to put our shoulder to the wheel as a team and make sure we have a successful event. I'm looking forward to working with all the constituents of the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors for the next four years. My hope is that we will service and become closer to our athletes, coaches, club owners and administrators. We are certainly grateful to our many fans and hopefully we will all have a successful 2001.

The recruiting process for college women's gymnastics scholarships is not quite as easy as it used to be. Helping high school-age gymnasts (beginning freshman year) to prepare for college and procure a scholarship has become an extremely timeconsuming, extensive, and complex task. Organization is a must!

Although the old road to recruiting seemed much easier years ago, it lacked thoroughness and accuracy. Today's access to modem technology and the highway of information are invaluable tools of research for making that perfect match between a gymnast, a college, and that college's gymnastics program. The old road garnered much less interest and popularity than it does today. Attitudes were different, competitive and difficulty levels were average at best, and the general quality of college gymnastics was limited. Highly trained club gymnasts often felt either "too old" and chose to retire before college, or felt that they could perform easily at an wlchallenging college level. They looked at only a few interesting schools. The NCAA or AIAW coaches

did all the work looking aggressively for candidates who would be the right match for their programs and institutions. Now in the new millennium, the dynamics of the road to a scholarship are very different: a. Increased number of qualified high-level gymnasts b. Increased number of available scholarships and monies c. Increased need for organization and high tech marketing d. Tendencyformore uninformed gymnasts to be passed by due to lack of aggressive research, promoting, and presentation e. Need for club coaches to be willing to play an

=;;~Ihey

To the best of my knowledge, there are currently 116 colleges offering women's gymnastics programs, and a few more to be added soon to the list. There is a place for almost every athlete with good gymnastics and good academics. It just takes time and work to find a match. From my experience, to successfully find that match I recommend that the gymnast should be competing at least Level 9 at the Regional level or above, with a 2.5 or better CPA. LOgically, the top Elites and National Levell0's require less work to place, yet I was amazed to see at least 15 gymnasts standing at JO Nationals last year with no commitment to a university! This should NOT happen. There are many great colleges across the country providing the best in education and gymnastics with money available from scholarships and other sources.


Below is a sample of the timeline we have followed in securing over 40 scholarships for our athletes. And although this is not 100% perfect, it is nonetheless a valuable guideline for planning and executing the necessary work ahead. Encouraging gymnasts to stay in the sport is so important because the rewards can be outstanding!

501 BLUES

The TEN. 0

Just imagine grips that fit with the comfort of your oldest, most faded jeans-from the first swing. Consider baby suede padding, NEW SOFT SWING blue foam insert for those who need a little extra softness , a distinctive wrist strap and you have a 501 BLUES. Most gymnasts want a grip that's soft and easy to break in. They also want them to be durable . The 501 does this better than any other grip on the market AND they do it with style and good pricing.

CLASSIC is the most durable grip on the market. We know - our customers talk. Of course, it takes longer to break-in The CLASSIC grips because of the low stretch factor of the heavy duty leather. In fact, in recent independent laboratory tests the TEN.O classic leather was compared to the leather in other popular grips and was found to withstand 18% greater pulling stress. If you are a hard training, big trick gymnast who doesn't like her grips to stretch or doesn't like to buy grips frequently we recommend using THE CLASSIC. Literally thousands of gymnasts do! You will love the baby suede padding, the custom designed webbing for a fresh new look, and the new soft swing insert.

Introducing the Newest Grip on the Bars! <.p

Designed and manufactured with assistance from National Team Coaches, the Just Right by Gibson is the newest idea in Ladies Uneven Bar Grips. The Just Right is cut slightly narrower for great contact with the bar and reduces side to side rolling of the grip for athletes with smaller hands The single buckle design assures a firm, tight fit at the wrist, and eliminates the constant adjustment necessary with velcro strap grips.

ne of the most awesome things about gymnastics is the thrill of doing a

new trick for the first time. Unfortunately, this is also one of the scariest parts of gymnastics. Dealing with fear in gymnastics is scary to just think about.

point. It's also something that is always around so you have to learn how to deal with it. One of the best ways to get past fear and learn new skills is by first learning proper progressions. ake sure you have proper matting and the equipment is set correctly. Throw in a couple of extra mats. You can never have too many mats if you're trying something new. If possible, use a pit. Also, lower the equipment so if you do fall you don't fall as far, or so you'll just land on your feet. ~et a spot or do a new skill in a belt. Have your coach help you ~ough the skill to get you more comfortable. The more times you do a skill with a spot or in a belt, the more comfortable you'll get with it. As you get better you can take the skill out of the belt or have your coach just stand-in and give you a light spot. This will also build your confidence. Eventually your coach will just be standing there for decoration, and you'll be doing the skill by ourself. here will come a time when you are going to have to make the leap by yourself. You might be thinking, "There's no way I can do this, I'm too scared!" At this point you need to trust your coaches. They would not have you attempt a skill, if they didn't feel you were ready to do it. Trust them and trust yourself. Chances are if you're ready to do it yourself, you've done the skill a lot of times with a spot or a little help. Do the skill just like you've done it hW1dreds of times with a spot. Once you corrunit to doing a skill
