The championship provides for a field of 36 teams determined based on their regional qualifying score and seeded by the NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Committee. Additionally, 24 all-around competitors and 48 individual event specialists (12 on each piece) are eligible to advance to Regionals – as long as they're on a non-qualifying team.[3]


As a result, six NCAA Regional competitions – all of which contain 6 teams, 4 all-around competitors and 2 individual event specialists per event (8 in total) – took place on April 2, 2016.[4] The selection show to announce the placements for teams and individuals will take place during the weekend of March 25–27, 2016.
