Kansas USA Gymnastics Mission Statement

The mission of KS USA Gymnastics is to promote, educate and guide USA Gymnastics clubs in Kansas to the highest level of achievement and to provide useful information and services to clubs involved in all aspects of gymnastics instruction.  We strive to encourage education for gymnastics professionals of all levels and promote excellence with regard to the development of our athletes.

Kansas Judge’s Cup

The Kansas Judge’s Cup is an annual competition sponsored by the Kansas Judges Association. It is for all gymnasts Levels 3-10. The Judges volunteer their time and fees, and the money raised goes toward continuing Judges education and for sending a Level 7 All-Star Team to the National Judge’s Cup. The top six athletes from the KS Judge’s Cup in the All-Around, regardless of age group, represent team Kansas every year at the National Judge’s Cup. The location of the National Judge’s Cup changes every year.
