TOCA was proud to sponsor and support the USAG Arizona State Meet this past weekend!

The United States Association of Gymnastics (USAG) Arizona State Meet for women's Levels 6-10 took place this weekend at Rawhide in Chandler, AZ.  The event was run by the Arizona Sunrays Gymnastics and Dance Center. Over 450 gymnasts from across the state participated in the three day event.  TOCA sponsored the event and our own Dr. Amy Overlin was present throughout the weekend to provide medical care to the participants.  State champions were crowned in multiple levels and age divisions during the event.  In addition, for levels 7-10 the state meet serves as the qualification meet for the Regional 1 Championships that will be held in multiple locations during the month of April.  Arizona is a hot bed of gymnastics talent and numerous athletes were able to qualify on to the Region 1 Championships.  We would like to congratulate all the athletes on an amazing state meet and wish all the representatives for the state of Arizona the best of luck at the Region 1 Championships!
