Submissions:  Site submissions of commits and news items can be made to or by using this form.  Official Press Releases and other signed statements can be FAXed to (415) 873-1523 or sent via regular post.  See the contact page for more information.    

About this List:   This list contains gymnasts who have publicly committed to Division I & II schools for the 2009-2010 season.  The 2010 Recruitables section contains a partial listing of athletes believed to be eligible for signing.  These athletes will sign in November 2008 or the Spring of 2009 for entry into college in the Fall of 2009.  As always, corrections are welcomed and encouraged.

Important Definitions:  Items in italics will be considered verbal commit "rumors", until a signing or intent to attend is publicly confirmed. However, many of these "rumors" may have actually been submitted by the gymnast, their family, or club. For consistency, the site will continue to be updated as information becomes public. Where available, links are provided to press releases, web sites, and newspaper articles.  Please note due to NCAA regulations, we are unable to confirm a commit directly with the athlete.  However, the athlete is free to publicly state their intentions.  The college may only confirm the signing after the National Letter of Intent has been received.  Information on recruiting dates, calendars and rules are available in FAQ section of this site.

Scholarships and Estimates:   Those items in bold represent counts supplied by the school during our annual survey or subsequent update.  An estimate of the number of scholarships available for each school with no survey response or a revision are in in italics.   All estimates of remaining scholarships are unofficial estimates by

Other Policies:  

Please see the FAQ section of this site for a further explanation of the policies for this site.

Please note some colleges listed below do not offer non-need based aid or do so only on a limited basis.  Some colleges offer partials, and others have other non-athletic scholarships available.  Only Div I and II colleges are listed.

Walkons will not be listed until after May 1st of each recruiting year, unless a confirmation is received and only then the athlete's name will still remain italicized.  Please note that walkon status is not always known, even when rosters are published.  Also, some schools do not finalize rosters until after Fall training has begun.  Also, an intended walkon may change her plans.

COACHES:  You may submit a "total" scholarship count to or FAX a statement on official letterhead to (415) 873-1523.  The 2009 Survey will be sent out in July.
