USAGym updates

I hope everyone is having a good season so far.
The Men’s Program Staff has many exciting things going.  At this time, I want to share a couple of them with you:
  1. The NCAA Release of Information form is now electronic. Regional Chairs will no longer collect the paper form at Regional Championships.  I would like every state that has a website to put this link on their website and bring attention to it.  Also, please email a note out to all of your coaches to let them know about this and instruct them to have their parents complete this for their L8-L10 athletes that will be vying for a shot to go to JO Nationals.
2.The Academic All-American Recognition Submission: please put a link up to the new AAA Recognition link: https://usagym.org/pages/men/pages/academic_allamerican.html
The deadline for this is now February 1.  Please email your coaches to remind them of this as well.
This is all for now.
Have a great day!

Misha Tsitsilin Memorial & Funeral

January 4th, 2016 by olssonf No comments »


It’s a dark day in Northern California. Some of us are lucky enough to have called him a friend.

With a heavy heart, we announce of the death of Misha Tsitsilin, and the fundraising effort going on in order to pay for funeral expenses.   

Misha was hit and killed by a car on Saturday, January 2, 2016 at 7:00pm while riding his bike in San Jose.  There is a fundraising drive going on (see link below or donate directly at San Mateo Gymnastics-checks to Janny Ratner). Our hope is to raise enough money to bury Misha in his home town of Voronezh, Russia, next to his family.

Thank you so much for your help, even a small amount counts.


Or, direct donations are accepted at San Mateo Gymnastics (checks made out to Janny Ratner), 1306 Elmer Street, Belmont 94002

A Memorial Service will be planned in the Bay Area.
