The Competition

This is the 16th anniversary of this event.  The 2018 event is expected to bring more than 3,500 gymnasts (Men's, Women's, and Trampoline & Tumbling) from 15+ states to the OZONE INVITATIONAL Powered by Flip Fest Gymnastics Camp, a USA Gymnastics sanctioned competition.  The Knoxville Convention Center is an ideal venue, one of the nicest in the Southeast.    

The 6th annual OZONE COLLEGIATE CLASSIC presented by Texas Roadhouse (NCAA Women's) will also be held on Saturday night, January 13th from 8:00-10:00pm. 

The event name is in recognition of our title sponsor, Ozone Leotards, the fastest growing gymnastics apparel company in the world.  All of the apparel gifts for this competition will be supplied by Ozone.  We are sure that the gymnasts will appreciate the quality of the Ozone apparel, especially the tagless feature.  Our collaborative relationship with the Flip Fest Camp also remains the same.

TEAM Effort

The Ozone Invitational is a consolidated effort of several organizations including Premier Athletics (staff & parent volunteers), the Knoxville Tourism and Sports Corporation (staff & volunteers), the Flip Fest Summer Gymnastics Camp (staff & volunteers), and the Ozone staff. We are all extremely fortunate and appreciative to have all of these groups working together to facilitate one of the largest and unique events in our industry. The vast majority of event volunteers are parents from the two Premier Athletics gyms in Knoxville. We would not be able to run this competition without them, and thank them for their dedication and assistance. 

A special thanks goes out to Olympians John Macready (1996) and John Roethlisberger (1992, 1996, & 2000), and their Flip Fest Camp staff for continued enthusiasm and participation in this competition. Macready and Roethlisberger run the finest gymnastics camp in the country and were catalysts to the success of this competition.  They are active members of our organizing committee and proud retailers of Ozone apparel at their camp.   

We would like to express our deep appreciation to Ian Leach of Texas Roadhouse, our official restaurant and sponsor since the start of this invitational.
