The Junior Olympic levels are determined by age and skill level. Level 9 consists of 12-13 year old, while Level 10 is split into two age groups: 14-15 years old and 16-18 years old. The top 14 gymnasts in the Level 9 all-around were named to the Junior Olympic National Team. The top 18 U.S. all-around finishers in both division of Level 10 qualified to the 2010 Visa Championships, Aug. 10-14, in Hartford, Conn., where the U.S. Junior National Teams for both age groups are determined.

To advance to the Junior Olympic National Championships, gymnasts competed in state and regional championships and qualified based on their all-around or multiple-event scores, or through regional allotment. For more results and event information, go to www.2010jomen.com.
