The Junior Olympic Committee is in the process of determining the direction of the JO Compulsory Program for the next cycle beginning August 1, 2021.  The survey includes recommendations from the JO Committee.  The Regional representatives would like you to take time to write your opinions on the proposals so they can represent the gymnastics community correctly at their next meeting.

A list of developmental skills will be included with the new compulsory exercises to provide guidance on additional skills that should be taught at each level.
