Did ChalkBucket help you?... help us too.

If you can't help financially... tell a friend about us!

It depends on how all the 9 yo girls did. It will be the top 15-20 scores for A camp and the next 15-20 for B camp. It seems like a weaker year than usual so the scores could be anywhere.

No, but the coaches may receive the info as early as today. Last year 27 9 year olds were invited to the A camp and about the same to the B camp. The cut off last year for the A camp for 9 year olds was 79 and for the B camp was 73.

I dont think the cutoffs are posted anywhere.. I had a 10yrold there and we should find out anytime before Sunday as far as teams. I am not sure about the 9yrolds. I do know that Gary announced at the start of the 2nd day of testing that the 10yrold scores were exceptionally high this year.. There were a lot of talented gymnasts testing. Congrats to all that made it there and good luck.. The wait is so hard on everyone.

lol no kidding from what i heard they may have taken kids that didnt do so well on abilities but exceled at skills and placed them on "A" team... so i don't know how these past cut off scores will even be a factor now

This is becoming more intersting than who won the Olympic bid for 2016 (Rio if you don't already know) and I don't even live in the usa.

SO I am guessing the criteria for scoring and allocation to A or B teams is not cited ahead of testing. Odd.

We got our results of who made the teams & cutoffs for each camp today. They did have a certain number which was the combined cutoff score (weighted phys abilities & skills score) for each age group. They then ALSO added in any athletes that received a certain score for the skills portion. I cant imagine they added too many more of those athletes- most of the gymnasts that were very successful at skills (these kids that were "added" had to average about a 9.0 on skills) also did very well at the physical abilities.
