Athlete Bio Information Sheet


All athletes who have qualified to JO Nationals or Eastern/Western Championships MUST link to the following web site to complete their bios. These surveys are used by USA Gymnastics for information and promotional purposes, including posting pictures and bios of the winners. The National Championships Meet Hosts may also use these bios to publicize human interest stories about the athletes.

Most importantly, it allows us to provide information on the high school-age athletes to the NCAA* coaches in attendance. Even if you are already signed with a university, we are asking you to complete the survey, as it’s important that the collegiate coaches are aware of who has already committed to a university.

The deadline for submitting this survey is
Wednesday, May 1, 2019.

No information will be accepted after this date.

* Information about all high school–age athletes will be distributed to the NCAA coaches in attendance.

BLP Studios is proud to be the official photographers for the 2019 USAG Level 9 Western National Gymnastics Championships.

We pride ourselves in capturing the action on all four events and the moments in between. Since we are on the floor (behind the ropes) we get the angles you can’t from the stands. We are so close that we also capture those moments between your gymnast and their coach and teammates.

We do not photograph everyone, just the gymnasts that sign up ahead of time. This system allows us the opportunity to concentrate on the specific gymnasts and their moments.
