Here is our latest article from our writer Jen Kula...

My daughter competed Xcel Diamond two years and is now a second year L9 at 16 (her first go-around at L9 when she was 14 was disrupted by COVID. She decided about six weeks ago to explore the Acro & Tumbling recruiting world. Now just 6 weeks later and she's already been invited on an official visit to a D2 school. There are a lot of opportunities in A&T if it's something your daughter may have interest in. My daughter is now finally excited about exploring colleges, which makes this momma happy. She'd had a lot of fear of college searches because of academics and cost, and she's suddenly excited.

I’m an A&T (NCATA) official as well, and the meets are very interesting and impressive. I am impressed with the strength and precision of these athletes, and at how hard they work. It’s a great path for retired or former gymnasts, and every year more colleges are adding it to their program.
if you have the chance to watch a meet near you, you should go.

How does one go about learning more about which schools offer A&T and club?

I’m guessing ideally I’m looking for something similar to mymeetscores that would help me see how big the teams are, how competitive they are, etc? And not that there is a “right” answer to either of those — more of a right fit for different athletes.

And here's a link to the governing association for college A&T: https://thencata.org/

There are links to the schools, which seem to be added almost weekly! 50 D1, 2 and 3 schools have announced programs. Not all are currently active-- a few are going to have their first season starting in January 2023, and others in 2024. There are 30+ already competing.
