As with most camps, it will begin with physical abilities testing and then each athlete will have verifications on all four apparatus.

Routines be evaluated with the athletes performing half or full routines with their dismounts to either a hard or soft landing surface.  Execution and composition will be the primary focus of this camp.

Athletes are trying to prove readiness to compete, as individuals will be chosen for a few major competitions the first half of this year.  These competitions will include a wild card slot at the AT&T American Cup and the International Gymnix (Jrs. only) in March and the Jesolo Trophy in April.

Ragan Smith has already been chosen for one of the two slots at the AT&T American Cup.
