Milwaukee to host the 2017 USA Gymnastics Championships
MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee will host the 2017 USA Gymnastics Championships, according to a news release from VISIT Milwaukee and USA Gymnastics.
The championships showcase more than 1,800 of the country’s best gymnasts in acrobatic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, trampoline and tumbling.
Scheduled for June 27-July 2, Junior Olympic competition will be staged at the Wisconsin Center, with junior and senior elite competition to be held at the BMO Harris Bradley Center from June 29-July 1.
Performances in Milwaukee will also determine berths on the junior and senior U.S. National Teams for acrobatic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, and trampoline and tumbling. For rhythmic gymnastics and trampoline and tumbling, the competition will be part of the selection process for the 2017 World Championships. In addition, the USA Gymnastics Championships will be part of the selection process for the U.S. teams that will compete at the 2017 World Games, the equivalent of the Olympic Games for sports and events not included in the Olympics.
VISIT Milwaukee is working in conjunction with USA Gymnastics on the championships. This is the event’s first trip to Milwaukee, which hosted the 2003 U.S. Championships for men’s and women’s gymnastics.
The estimated economic impact of the event to the Milwaukee area is $5.4 million.
The competition schedule will be available in the near future and tickets will go on sale in 2017.
