update from USA Gymnastics.....
With the launch of the new athlete registration season, the introductory athlete membership was applicable only to those athletes participating in the Xcel Program: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond. However, Women’s Program has decided to also include the Women’s JO ProgramLevels 1 and 2into that structure (reminder the new Level 3 was the old Level 4 and remains $49).
Therefore, the Introductory athlete membership which is $15 online, now applies to Xcel Program: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond AND Women's JO Program Levels 1 and 2. The website and forms have been updated.
As of August 1, all of the old levels will be dropped from the USA Gymnastics computer system and only the new levels will appear, which will make things a little less complicated for our members.
