Nearly 1,900 of the country’s top gymnasts in acrobatic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, and trampoline and tumbling will compete at the 2017 USA Gymnastics Championships, June 27 to July 2, at the BMO Harris Bradley Center and Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee. The six-day national championships feature competition on both Junior Olympic and elite levels. A Kick-Off Celebration is slated for 4 p.m. on June 29.
The 2017 USA Gymnastics Championships Kick-Off Celebration, held outside the BMO Harris Bradley Center at 4th St. and State St., is a gathering for athletes, families and fans alike leading into the senior elite acrobatic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, trampoline, tumbling and double mini-trampoline competition, with face painting, games, local mascots, live music and food. Several U.S. Olympians will also be on hand for the celebration.
VISIT Milwaukee is working in conjunction with USA Gymnastics on the championships. This is the event’s first trip to Milwaukee, which hosted the 2003 U.S. Championships for men’s and women’s gymnastics.
For the junior and senior elite levels for each discipline, the athletes are vying for national titles. Performances in Milwaukee will also determine berths on the junior and senior U.S. National Teams for acrobatic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, and trampoline and tumbling.
Evening session tickets at the BMO Harris Bradley Center are $35 for June 29-30 and $40 for July 1. The all-session pass, which grants access to all sessions at both venues, is $95. Tickets may be purchased at the BMO Harris Bradley Center Box Office, at ticketmaster.com or other Ticketmaster outlets, or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
