Attached is an e-mail from the coach of Women’s Gymnastics at Alaska University. The University is discussing taking gymnastics out of the program. I thought it would be great if Region 7 could maybe right a letter to try to help to keep the sport? I know you are extremely busy but I feel college gymnastics helps enormously to keep the kids in the sport.
