Levels 5 through 7 gymnasts will compete on Saturday starting at 8:50 a.m. Team challenges will take place Sunday, starting at 8:25 a.m.

About 400 youth gymnasts are expected to compete, coming from throughout California including Bakersfield. There will also be competitors from other parts of the western United States.
