Want a glimpse at the potential future of the USA women’s gymnastics team? It will be on display in two events this weekend at the Huntsman Center.
The 2018 Hopes Classic, which features athletes competing just below the elite level is set for Friday. On Saturday, world vault and floor exercise silver-medalist Jade Carey of Phoenix is one of the seven members of the U.S. Women’s National Team expected to compete in the American Classic.
Both competitions are competitive qualifiers for women’s gymnastics: the American Classic, for the 2018 U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Boston in August, and the U.S. Classic later this month in Columbus, Ohio; and the Hopes Classic, for the Hopes Championships, held in conjunction with the U.S. Classic.
The Hopes Classic and the American Classic both have two sessions, and the schedule, which is subject to change, is below.
Tickets are available through utahtickets.com.
