RAINY WEEKEND, NO PROBLEM! 

This weekend an approximately 600 gymnasts from around the state will converge on the Angel of the Winds Arena for a two-day USA Gymnastics Washington 2021 XCEL Gold/Platinum/Diamond State Championship, including many of your local clubs.

The competition will consist of four sessions on Saturday and three sessions on Sunday. There is limited capacity per session. The two-day event has been designed with capacity limits and safety and sanitation standards to maintain adherence with the State of Washington and Snohomish County Health District.

It is a wonderful chance to see in person many young athletes.  The venue is safe and family friendly.  For ticket information, please go to: Angel of the Winds Gymnastic Tickets

Northwest Aerials will be hosting this event, while sadly closing their doors on August 13, 2021, after an incredible 41 years. Please show your support for this long-time youth business and for all these young gymnasts.

“Northwest Aerials is excited to be hosting the USA Gymnastics Washington XCEL Gold/Platinum/ Diamond State Competition in Everett, Washington”, said Patti Gable, Northwest Aerials Director. “Since there were no state meets held in 2020, we are glad that, with the help of the Snohomish County Tourism Promotion Area, City of Everett, and Snohomish County Sports Commission, we are able to offer this opportunity to the top XCEL gymnasts in Washington.  Following the state Covid policies, we will be offering a safe and exciting event.”

Added, Corey Margolis, Spectra Venue Management’s General Manager at Angel of The Winds Arena, “we are thrilled to once again host fans in our facility and continue our involvement with gymnastics and would like to thank Northwest Aerials and USA Gymnastics Washington for their commitment to ensuring that the youth across our state can compete this year”.  “Utilizing Spectra’s ‘Together Again!’ plan, we have implemented many policies and procedures to provide our guests an enjoyable, straightforward, familiar—and above all, safe—experience!”
