The United States Elite Coaches Association for Women's Gymnastics (USECA) is an organization for coaches devoted to the progress of elite and age group level gymnastics in America. Members enjoy the benefits of regularly scheduled meetings at major elite level events and USA Gymnastics Congress, representation on the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors (with two votes) and on other USAG Committees, a major voice and influence on the rules, policies and decisions that govern and affect our age group gymnasts and coaches, regular communication with members (a major goal of USECA is to keep you informed on elite level gymnastics and its relationship with all levels of gymnastics). Members also receive the USECA Newsletter published 8 - 10 times per year, recognized as a primary source of information in the gymnastics community.


 The United States Elite Coaches Association was founded to serve gymnastics coaches and others interested in elite women’s gymnastics through educational materials, representation on the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors, and awards to those who have served the Association and elite women’s gymnastics. The U.S.E.C.A. provides elite gymnastics coaches and other members of the Association a vehicle for communication through monthly Journals, video recordings, and a website. The Association is built from volunteer coaches, educators, scientists, judges, and other devoted to elite women’s gymnastics.

U.S.E.C.A. has been serving elite women’s gymnastics since 1976. The annual meeting is held each year in conjunction with the USA Gymnastics National Congress.
