If you’re excited for the return of NCAA gymnastics next month, you can get an exclusive sneak peek at the talent this weekend with the first annual Collegiate All-Stars competition, hosted by the College Gymnastics Association.

In partnership with Virtius, a gymnastics streaming platform, the College Gymnastics Association is hosting this event for the first time on December 11 at 5 p.m. ET on YouTube.

The competition will feature NCAA men’s athletes from across the country, as voted on by fans, with competitors competing as part of teams: East vs. West. Each team will select four All-Stars per event. If you’re wondering which programs are slated for each team, look no further than the list below:


  • Army
  • Illinois
  • Michigan
  • Navy
  • Ohio State
  • Penn State
  • Springfield
  • William & Mary


  • Air Force
  • California
  • Greenville
  • Nebraska
  • Oklahoma
  • Simpson
  • Stanford

The competition format is 4v4 (head-to-head) on each event with a 10.0 scoring system.

The CGA recently announced John Roethlisberger and Bridget Sloan as the commentators, along with Heath Thorpe, Maggie Nichols, Livy Dunne, and Stephen Nedoroscik serving as judges.

Selection committees representing each team chose a set of gymnasts for each event for fans to vote on here and on the CGA’s social accounts. The committees were comprised of Sam Mikulak, Evan Eigner, and Jordan Gaarenstroom (East) and Akash Modi, Sergey Resnik, and John Robinson (West).

The 10.0 judging system will be simplified from the men’s typical open-ended code, with judges focusing on three key criteria: excitement, originality, and risk.

Tune-in this Sunday on YouTube to see how the East vs. West battle unfolds.
