USA Gymnastics Update for Covid-19

Per USA Gymnastics:

USAG has decided to extend the event and meet sanction moratorium for eight weeks, through at least May 10. This restriction means that all sanctioned meets and events, including state and regional championships that were to occur during that time, will be canceled. Additionally, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Men’s Artistic JO Nationals.
