What you need to know about the U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Team Trials in St. Louis

The road to Tokyo for USA Gymnastics goes through St. Louis. Here are some basics of what you need to know

ST. LOUIS — Some of the biggest stars of Team USA in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics will earn their spot right here in St. Louis.

The United States Olympic Team Gymnastics Trials are coming up at the end of June, and here's the basics of what you need to know:

When are the trials taking place?

The 2021 United States Olympic Gymnastics Team Trials will take place Thursday-Sunday, June 24-27.

Where are the trials taking place?

The trials will be held at The Dome at America's Center in downtown St. Louis.

The event was originally slated to be held at the Enterprise Center and were sold out in that venue. But due to COVID-19 restrictions, the trials needed a larger space.

The Dome can seat about 20,000. Masks are required, even if you're vaccinated.

There will be no street parties this year due to COVID-19. 

How can I see the trials in person?

Those who had originally bought tickets when the trials were scheduled to take place at the Enterprise Center got the first crack at buying tickets for the event at The Dome. If you had a ticket for the Enterprise Center, those will not be honored at The Dome. You should receive a refund and will then be able to buy new tickets for the updated venue.

Tickets for those still interested in attending who didn't originally purchase tickets for the Enterprise Center are available via Ticketmaster

Single-session tickets for the trials go on sale at 10 a.m. on Monday, June 14. Prices range from $20-$180, depending on the day and event type. Tickets can be bought through Ticketmaster.
