As of February 1st I have taken the position as Chairman of the US Elite Coaches Association. I am completely intimidated the past chairman. Mike Taylor, Bill Sands, Tony Gehman have left some pretty big shoes to fill.
I have some pretty lofty goals (and this is where you come in). Your input is crucial. Your contributions are incredibly valuable. I look forward to the challenges and hope I never disappoint.
Please contact me with your input, ideas and contributions.
Letter to the Membership
Tony Retrosi, Chairman
Dear USECA Members,
It is my honor to take the position as Chairman for USECA. I have been a member since the late 1980’s. To me, it has always been the place that I turn for drills, technique and planning for high level gymnastics. There have been some amazing coaches who have served as Chairman of USECA and I will rely on their guidance and experience. I have set many goals for myself and USECA for the next few months. I welcome your input and appreciate your support.

Going into Olympic Trials I would like to concentrate on increasing membership. We are working on streamlining membership to make everything more accessible to our members. BUT- this is where you come in. If you believe in the the product that is USECA (and I am assuming you do. That’s why you are a member) we need you to tell your friends and colleagues about us and encourage them to sign up.
