I, along with 5 of our region’s state chairs and all our technical chairs, went to Indianapolis to a meeting on February 28 with USA Gymnastics. We had a two day meeting with 76 other state, regional, and national chairman, from all over the country, USA Gymnastics new CEO Kerry Perry and USA Gymnastics Women’s programs National staff members of USAG.
This meeting was very informative. We came away from the meeting with renewed confidence that USA Gymnastics is doing the right things to correct past errors. We also believe their plan moving forward will make USA Gymnastics better than ever! Greater communication with athletes, clubs, coaches, parents, and judges has already began and more will start soon.
This is a statement from the 88 volunteer chairman that met February 28, 2018 in Indianapolis:
USA Gymnastics holds the highest standard of care for athletes and members.
At the end of the day, we have an opportunity to improve USA Gymnastics. We have an obligation to meet the challenge that has been set before us and to become a better organization. It is about sharing positive gymnastics stories and getting it right.
88 Women’s Program USA Gymnastics National, Regional, and State leaders stood today to support USA Gymnastics.
Here are some of the highlights of the meeting:
We would love to have your positive thoughts to help us move forward. We can not let the bad press from Nassar define who we are and take away all of the positive things that our sport provides. Be a part of making our sport better than it has ever been.
