Becoming Division I NCAA
Petition Background (Preamble):
The University of Texas at Austin at one time had an NCAA Division I Gymnastics Program, however due to loss of funding, the program was cut several years ago.
The need for an NCAA Division I team has arisen given the level of national talent within the Junior Olympic Gymnastics Community in Texas that is taken by out of state gymnastics programs such as 3 time NCAA National Champs, OU, and other programs ie: Penn State, Michigan, Nebraska, and Minnesota.
Texas Junior Olympic athletes rank among the top in the Nation, and as a university dedicated to both scholastic and athletic achievement, we need to keep these athletes in-state to compete for the great University of Texas and continue our reputation for both academic and atheletic excellence.
