new – Southern California United MAG

Good luck to Studio West Gymnastics’ Head Coach Heinz Schulmeister. His mission is to put together a College Men’s Club team.

Earlier this summer, Schulmeister formed Southern California United (SCU); a new team bringing gymnasts enrolled at any southern California college or university together.

“There are over 50 colleges with potential gymnasts for this team. Any male gymnast attending college in Southern California can be part of the team and compete under NCAA competition rules to continue achieving their dreams in gymnastics while in college” states Schulmeister.

Men’s gymnastics has not been available at the collegiate level in Southern California since 1994, when UCLA dismissed their legendary men’s gymnastics program. …

The current status:

Schulmeister: Four gymnasts have already committed to the team; three students from UCLA and one student from LBCC. …

indiegogo – Men’s Gymnastics movie

Larry Cruz proposes to make a movie promoting men’s gymnastics, motivated by the need to SAVE Men’s NCAA Gymnastics.

His fundraising goal is $500,000.


The story of ten gymnast ranging from intermediate to collegiate levels give all they have physically and mentally to stand on top of the podium every competition.

We are saving the dreams of our gymnastic kids, while saving men’s gymnastics in the NCAA.

Details via that link.

Great cause. Personally I feel the budget is too high. And Larry’s promo video does not fill me with confidence that he’s the right guy to put together an inspirational movie.

Dee Dee Foster on Alabama

David Patterson coached the great Dee Dee Foster to become the first Elite gymnast from the state of Alabama, the first gymnast in the State to qualify as a USA national team member.

Dee Foster Worley:

… when I learned Sarah and David were stepping down as one of the most dominant coaching tandems in any sport – and that Dana had been tapped as the new head coach – I cried.

I cried for the 35 years Sarah and David have been in my life, teaching me to properly steward my gifts and my womanhood.

I cried because I know that Sarah’s passionate commitment to the University of Alabama gymnastics program is an eternal flame that will never extinguish.

I cried because David, who is one of the best coaches that has ever or will ever grace the planet, will end his gymnastics coaching career as he lived it: humbly in the background, holding everyone up with his quiet might and taking none of the credit for his immeasurable contribution to their success.

I cried because, although I will miss seeing my mentors at the helm, I am almost airborne with joy because my good friend has earned the opportunity of a lifetime.

I cried because I know Dana will be heavily armed with the beautiful burden of continuing a legacy of – not just excellence – but supremacy.

I cried because I can see what’s ahead for my good friend. And it’s the same thing that’s always been ahead for her: a steady, sturdy, next-level rise and a long, fruitful trailblazing journey.

Roll Tide.

As a result of the past 30 year trend of discontinuing men’s programs, many in our gymnastics community have been lost, beat down and disheartened. We intend to fix this problem, change the landscape and unite all collegiate gymnastics alumni & friends. We appreciate your support with this initiative and please feel free to spread this form to any and all members of the past and present NCAA gymnastics community.

Please contact Mike Burns (burns265 (a) umn.edu) with any questions you may have about this database. It is our new mission to Preserve, Protect and Build for the future generations of gymnasts & fans.
