ICF Coaches Cup


Metropolitan Gymnastics is proud to host the ICF Coaches Cup – a fundraising meet for the Iron Cross Foundation Scholarship fund.  ICF was started by a Washington state gymnast to help his peers and has been providing support for Junior Olympic gymnasts around Region 2 and the US.   ICF scholarships help defray competition-related expenses for JO athletes (boys level 5 and up) who would otherwise not be able to compete.  The Coaches Cup also supports the UW Men’s Gymnastics Foundation.  Both organizations provide opportunities for male gymnasts to remain active participants in the sport—ICF in the athlete’s Junior Olympic years, and UW for collegiate athletes.)

Gymnastics Family Reunion:

Following the Optionals Session on Saturday evening, ICF will host a Family Reunion for all members of the Men’s Gymnastics Family.  This is an opportunity for gym families young and old to reconnect and share stories of their time in the Men’s Gymnastics Family.  Food and beverages will be provided by ICF.  There is no charge for the reunion, but participants are encouraged to attend the Optional session.  The DeFrees/Backman Memorial Award will be formally introduced at this event.

DeFrees/Backman Memorial Award:

ICF proudly announces that we have created the DeFrees/Backman Memorial Award in honor of Max DeFrees and Dallas Backman to recognize a high school aged gymnast from Region 2.  Nominations will be accepted until February 1st.  Nominations may be submitted in person at the ICF Coaches Cup.
