COLLEGE GYMNASTICS SCHOLARSHIPS
With very few NCAA institutions offering College Gymnastics Scholarships, competition is very tough. You must be competing at the very elite level, as many Olympians will be competing in College between Olympic cycles. Coaches will be able to make an initial evaluation of your ability through quality video and a professional marketing program. Due to the limited opportunities, being prepared early is almost more important in securing a College Gymnastic Scholarship than any other sport.
Your academic grades need to be considered too, as different Divisions have different Academic qualification criteria. Academic grades are the backbone of your College experience, perform well in the classroom and you can play on the team. High School grades and SAT exam results can be used to your advantage to secure a combination of Academic and Athletic Scholarship.

College Gymnastics was introduced as one of twelve new sports to the NCAA in the landmark 1981-1982 season. The Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) conducted a large push against the NCAA for sole governance of the sport, they were unsuccessful. Since its inception into the NCAA, College Gymnastics has seen only six Colleges claim the NCAA Division I title, while the NCAA Division II championship was no longer conducted from 1987. University of Georgia have been the most successful College, having already won ten championships.
