A letter from the NACGC-W regarding a new initiative to promote the growth of Women's NCAA Gymnastics is reproduced below.

SCHEDULE DIFFICULTY INDEX FOR TOP 10 TEAMS IN THE 2009 COACHES' PRE-SEASON POLL

The schedule difficulty index (strength of schedule) is calculated by awarding 10 points for scheduling the number one team in the pre-season coaches' poll, 9 points for scheduling number 2, down to 1 point for number 10.  No points are awarded for scheduling teams ranked below 10 and no schedule strength is calculated for teams ranked below 10.  Because some teams mention, in their news releases, the number of top-10 or top-25 teams of on their schedule, a fifth column, Top Ten Teams, is added.  This column compiles the number of times a team meets other teams ranked in the top 10.  Also added, in the sixth column, is each team's national ranking in average attendance for the 2008 season.

Earning the right to be a college athlete doesn’t happen over night. It takes time, dedication, training, talent, research and planning. Here are the top ten things you need to know to get started on your quest to earning a top gymnastics college scholarship

It seems as earlier and earlier the recruiting season begins, the later and later we write this article. In fact, there seems to be four different recruiting seasons for each class: the junior year; summer/fall heading into senior year; the spring of senior year; and finally, early graduation for a January start! Next year, we fear we will be adding a fifth category; the sophomore year.
