Subject: 2020 YMCA National Gymnastics YUSA National Gymnastics Committee: After much heartfelt deliberation, it is with sincere sorrow that the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 YMCA National Gymnastics Championships that were scheduled for June 23-27 in Long Beach, CA. The well-being of our participants and their families always comes first. We sincerely appreciate any work that you have put in as the committee to prepare for this event. I am really grateful to those of you past meet hosts that were willing to share your forms, information and numbers with me to assist our endeavors to put on a great competition. We were planning to put on the best possible event for all participants.

We realize the huge disappointment this is to our athletes who have trained so hard, coaches, families, vendors, presenters, donors, supporters, and our amazing volunteers who have worked tirelessly for the past year in anticipation of this wonderful event.

We will be working as efficiently as possible during this difficult time to provide the necessary information to those involved. Please bear with us as we are sure that you realize the difficulties that are caused by this National emergency. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and distress this may cause and look forward to seeing you at a YMCA event in the nearest future.

Best Wishes.
