Regular Signing Period Underway


The regular signing period began April 13. Gymnasts will have until early August to sign National Letters of Intent for the 2016-2017 season. Many gymnasts that don’t sign during the early period in November sign now. This could be due to a number of factors, including waiting to prove themselves to college coaches during their senior J.O. seasons, waiting to see if they are eligible to graduate early among other reasons. Take a look at who all has signed so far since the regular period began roughly two weeks ago.
