Fax, email, or mail all forms as instructed to Hilary Carlson. You may wish to call her to indicate that the petition is coming.

Other Petitions

If a gymnast does not qualify to the State Meet, she may petition to drop back one level at the beginning of the next competitive season.

  • For levels 7 and below, petition is sent to the SACC.
  • For levels 8 and higher, petition is sent to the RTC.

Once an athlete competes in the State Meet, she is not allowed to drop back. Coaches can petition to drop back one level for certain reasons which include injury, wellness, or other extenuating circumstances that would have prevented the athlete from continuing to train at the level at which they previously competed.

  • For levels 7 and below, petition is sent to the SACC.
  • For levels 8 and higher, petition is sent to the RTC.
