Anonymous Gymnast started this petition to College Gymnastics Association and

CGA is trying to make gymnastics more marketable to the viewer, but in reality we believe that is going to hurt NCAA gymnastics as a whole. Changing to a 10.0 system will create a cap on what we can do in our routines which would not create a good routine for a competition outside of the NCAA. The entire USA Senior National Team is a product of NCAA gymnastics where the open ended system pushes us to work towards national team and international competitions where the true FIG system is used. The idea of 4 up, 4 count would also hurt us and the sport. It means less guys have the chance to compete for a college team. We work our entire lives just to be a collegiate gymnast and this change gives us less opportunity to compete and it will cause the roster size to shrink. We are already down to 15 teams in the entire country and using a system with 4 people per event would just keep shrinking our already small sport. This also means that there will be less opportunities for gymnasts that have worked their entire lives for the chance to compete in college. Yes, it would make the meets shorter, but is it worth taking away an opportunity from junior gymnasts looking to join the NCAA? Changing our entire system only to try getting a few more fans is not worth what it will do to every gymnast and every team in the NCAA. We already have a strong but small fan base with our current system and we have had them for over 20 years. Trying to gain new fans could be at the cost of losing these fans that have been a part of our sport for a long time. Keep the open ended FIG system in play with the 6/5 up, 5 count scoring system. The goal should be to keep a sport evolving, not bring it back to a system from 20 years ago.
