Women's Collegiate National Championships

April 9-11, 2021

The 2021 USA Gymnastics Women's Collegiate National Championships will be held at the Show Me Center, 1333 North Sprigg St., April 9-11, 2021, Southeast Missouri women's gymnastics announced Monday.
 
"We are excited to host this premiere event here on campus next year at the Show Me Center," head coach Ashley Lawson said. "This is a great opportunity for fans and young gymnasts to watch some amazing gymnastics, and a way to help support our local community with revenue from over 250 student-athletes, along with their families and fans!"
 
The three-day Championships will feature gymnasts from 12 Division I, Division II and Division III colleges and universities and will determine the national team, all-around and individual event champions and medalists. These include Brown University, Centenary College, Cornell University, Lindenwood University, Seattle Pacific University, Southern Connecticut State University, Texas Woman's University, the United States Air Force Academy, the University of Bridgeport, West Chester University, Yale University and SEMO.

The top eight teams, based on the NCAA national qualifying score, qualify to the USA Gymnastics Collegiate National Championships. The top 16 individual qualifiers on each event who are not on a qualifying team earn berths to the Championships. The top two teams from each of the two qualification sessions advance to the team finals. For the individual event finals, the top five gymnasts plus ties from each session, with a maximum of three per school, qualify to the event finals. 
 
Thursday, April 8, 2021 will serve as a practice day and will also include a banquet prior to the start of competition. 

"This is the first time that we will be able to compete as a team in this event since being added to the Championships in 2018 and because the 2020 Championships were cancelled," Lawson said. "We're eager to finish our 2021 season here at home in Cape Girardeau, in front of our fans, competing to be the National Champions."
 
The Redhawks will host the USA Gymnastics Women's Collegiate National Championships for the first time in 2021 and last had a competition in the Show Me Center on March 10, 2019, when they welcomed Missouri and Lindenwood for the 2019 State of Missouri Meet.
