Women’s Program State, Regional and National Chairmen Conference
Hi everyone, your regional and state chairs just got back from Indianapolis. This was a one day conference Women’s Program State, Regional and National Chairmen. It reaffirmed our belief that USA Gymnastics is headed in the right direction and will be a stronger organization. There are still questions to be answered but all members in attendance crafted a statement of commitment. The statement is below.
“USA Gymnastics holds the highest standard of care for athletes and members.
We have the desire to rebuild and to move forward.
We have the opportunity right now, in the history of USA Gymnastics, in our sport, and in our country, to lead, saying, we are going to get it right. By doing that, we will honor our athletes who have been impacted and we will honor all USA Gymnastics members and participants, including, but not limited to, athletes, coaches, parents, judges, and volunteers.
We will not be the organization that shuts the doors, changes the name, and puts a new face on the same institution.
At the end of the day, we have an opportunity to improve USA Gymnastics. We have an obligation to meet the challenge that has been set before us and to become a better organization. It is about sharing positive gymnastics stories and getting it right.
We will get it right.
Eighty-Eight Women’s Program USA Gymnastics National, Regional, and State leaders stood today to wholeheartedly support USA Gymnastics.
A message from Kerry Perry
President and CEO, USA Gymnastics
Today I want to address the significant events that have taken place since I started with USA Gymnastics 90 days ago and what our path forward looks like in creating a culture of empowerment with our focus on athlete safety and well-being.
There is no doubt that all of us have been forever changed by the recent Larry Nassar hearings. I was in the courtroom to listen to the incredibly courageous women explain in vivid and painful detail the impact he had on their lives. Their powerful voices will stay with me for the rest of my life. I commit to you that I will keep their words and experiences at the core of every decision I make, every day, as the leader of this organization. Their stories have broken my heart, but also strengthened my resolve.
The best way to honor our athletes is to ensure that we do everything we can to prevent this from happening again by making bold decisions and holding ourselves to the highest standards of care.
