The 2014 U.S. Elite Challenge, a four-day event highlighting the best in tumbling and trampoline skills, starts today at the Spokane Convention Center.
In addition to the junior and senior elite levels, the U.S. Elite Challenge also includes athletes competing in Level 10 and Youth Elite and Open Elite. The U.S. representatives for trampoline for the Youth Olympic Games are expected to be determined following the Spokane event. Athletes are also competing for spots to the selection camp this fall for the 2014 World Championships and World Age Group Competition, scheduled for Daytona Beach, Fla., in November.
Synchronized trampoline titles will be up for grabs starting at 7:15 p.m. On Friday, elite qualification begins at 5 p.m. in men’s and women’s trampoline, double mini-trampoline and tumbling. Elite finals in each of the three different events will be held Saturday at 6 p.m.
Tickets are available at the door and are $40 for all-session tickets or $15 a day.
