confirmed – both NCAA Championships

For the 9th year in a row I’ll be attending the NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Championship, this year and next hosted in Texas. A highlight of the year for sure. That goes April 17-19th.

The weekend prior I’ll be attending the NCAA Men’s Championship in Norman, Oklahoma. That competition is typically even more thrilling than WAG. With the hosts in record breaking form, it’s going to be a BIG deal.

I’m being sent by the Cirque du Soleil Casting department. And I’m happy to meet any coach with questions about the world’s biggest employer of acrobats. Or you can contact talent scout Stacy Clark (stacy.clark (a) cirquedusoleil.com) directly.

Cirque supports the NCAA.

1/1-in for Paul. That mat doesn’t look like it has a Tumbl Trak Air Foor under it, as was used in the Olympic tour.
