The Rome Aerials Gymnastics Program will host the 2017 USAG GA Level 7 & 8 State Gymnastics Championships, March 31 and April 1-2 at the Forum.
With more than 400 competing gymnasts from all over the state, the meet is expected to bring in more than 4,000 spectators for the weekend.
“We’re looking forward to our own Rome Aerials hosting this huge event that is expected to have a great economic impact in Rome and Floyd County,” said Kevin Cowling, Director of Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation.
“This is a very special event for Rome and Floyd County,” added Matt Zollitsch, head coach of the Rome Aerials. “I am sure Broad Street will be packed all weekend with gymnasts and their families.”
All gymnasts will be competing Friday through Sunday, and Zollitsch invites locals to come cheer on the Rome Aerials as they battle for the state title.
