NAIGC allows shorts in competition

National Association of Intercollegiate Gymnastics Clubs

New for this season:

All athletes will now be allowed to compete with spandex shorts that are either black or match the main color of their competition leo. There will be no uniform deduction …

via email

This should be allowed at all levels of competition everywhere, of course.

  1. Seems like a great idea. I’m curious if any leotards are made these days that more substantially cover the rear end. Are they even available to buy? Even the leotards for children seem to cause a good portion of the rear end to show all the time. I find it creepy for that to be a standard cut in a children’s leotard. I also feel like I’m the only person on earth who doesn’t actually like looking at gymnasts’ rear ends in modern leotards. Am I the only one, or is it just such a taboo topic that no one dares say anything?


  2. There are several cuts available made by major companies. When you go to a JO comp most of the teams do not have leotards fitted where the gymnasts butts are hanging out. I don’t think the gymnasts should be embarrassed by their bodies and most are not judging my their swimsuit choices. lol
