Karolyi Ranch in Huntsville, Texas on Jan. 18, 2018
HUNTSVILLE, Texas (FOX 26) - Kerry Perry who was named USA Gymnastics president and chief executive officer by the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors on Nov. 7, 2017, and assumed the role Dec. 1, 2017, released the following statement:
USA Gymnastics has terminated its agreement with the Karolyi Ranch in Huntsville, Texas. It will no longer serve as the USA Gymnastics National Team Training Center.
It has been my intent to terminate this agreement since I began as president and CEO in December. Our most important priority is our athletes, and their training environment must reflect this. We are committed to a culture that empowers and supports our athletes.
We have cancelled next week’s training camp for the U.S. Women’s National Team. We are exploring alternative sites to host training activities and camps until a permanent location is determined. We thank all those in the gymnastics community assisting in these efforts.
