USA Gymnastics is pleased to announce the launch of an Xcel Sapphire Division – Pilot Program for the 2022-23 season. The Sapphire Division will provide a division above Diamond for those upper-level gymnasts who want to continue in the sport. Regions 3, 6, 7 and 8 have volunteered to pilot the Sapphire Division next season. Formal Sapphire rules are in development and will be released this summer separate from the Code of Points. USA Gymnastics also plans to provide further information on the pilot program at upcoming Regional and National Congress events this summer.
