USA Gymnastics Women’s Collegiate National Championships begin Saturday
8 Apr, 2021
The 2021 USA Gymnastics Women’s Collegiate National Championships will kick off with the team and all-around competitions Saturday, April 10 at the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau, Mo. Event finals will follow on Sunday, April 11.
The USA Gymnastics Collegiate National Championships is open to Division I, II and III schools with fewer than seven-and-a-half full scholarships. Following several season cancellations by eligible programs, the host Southeast Missouri State Redhawks are one of five teams set to compete at this year’s championships. They will be joined by Centenary College, Lindenwood University, Texas Woman’s University and United States Air Force Academy.
Lindenwood captured the team title in 2019 and will look to defend their crown after last year’s event was cancelled due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
The action begins Saturday at 3 p.m. ET with Sunday’s individual event finals set for 2 p.m. ET. Both the April 10 and April 11 sessions will stream live on the subscription service ESPN+, and limited tickets for the event are also available.
