2016-17 Oklahoma Gold AAU Team Program

My daughter is currently a Gold Nugget, where does she go from here? The progression upward is the AAU Team. 

What is the AAU Team Program? It's a girls competitive program designed to get girls ready to compete in the sport of gymnastics. Girls in AAU team usually practice 2 times a week for 2 hours. These practices are held at our recreational gym. 

How does my daughter join AAU Team? If your daughter is in the Gold Nugget program, 

more than likely she has the skill level to join the AAU Team. Contact Coach Andrea, by phone 405-341-1175 or via email at [email protected] (attention Andrea). 

Does AAU Team do more advanced skills? Probably but not necessarily. It depends on what level the child is in. AAU Team is designed to prepare athletes for competition. This means putting routines together, memorizing them, and getting ready to preform them in a competition environment. And that means levels 2 and 3 to start. 

Will the AAU Team Coaches let us know when our daughter is ready for competition? YES. 

Why AAU? A large majority of Oklahoma Clubs are offering AAU competitive programs because the participation costs are relatively inexpensive, and the practice required is considerably less compared to the USAG Junior Olympic Age Group program.

Describe briefly, the competitive meets they participate in?

  • AAU Meets: These meets will be held at ours and other gymnastics clubs around the state. Membership in AAU is required to participate. The meet schedule will consist of approximately 4-5 meets during the season (December-April). The entry fee is usually between $35-$45 per meet. The level of intensity is still novice in nature, and this is a good entry level competitive program for most gymnasts.
