Format of Competition

The competition was split into junior and senior divisions, with both divisions competing in the same two days of competition, where the all-around was contested on both days.

The senior division of these Championships served as qualifications into the Olympic Trials. The top 8 in the all-around automatically advanced to the Trials, and several more could petition in.
