  • The MGGCA Team Academic Award Submission Form can be found on the MGGCA website (
  • You must use 60% of your entire MSHSL roster.  This includes Varsity and Junior Varsity gymnasts in grades 7-12.  Student Managers are not to be included.  Please be sure that your MSHSL Roster is accurate.
  • If the number calculated is not an even number, round to the nearest whole number.  For example: if your team has 16 total gymnasts in grades 7-12 (Varsity and JV), you would use the top 10 gymnasts (16 * 60% = 9.6 round to the nearest whole number of 10). A minimum of five gymnasts must be used.
  • The most current Cumulative GPA for each gymnast must be used.
  • GPA’s must be calculated on a non-weighted 4.0 Scale to the nearest thousandth – three decimal places (3.421).  If your school has weighted grades, your school counselor will need to convert them to a 4.0 Scale.  (You cannot just give those students a 4.0 GPA.)  No values above 4.0 will be accepted.
  • GPA’s must be verified by a school administrator or counselor.
  • It is the responsibility of the Head Coach to be sure that the math work is completed at the bottom of the form.  Use an additional page if needed.  Be sure to include the following: Total Number of Gymnasts on Team, Number of Gymnasts Used (60% calculated number), Total GPA of Gymnasts Listed, and the Final Average Calculation
  • Complete the online form by Jan. 29th, 2023.

If the above items are not followed, your submission will not be accepted.
