Region 5 had a successful 2021 DEV Nationals competition. Though our region came into the competition as the defending super team champions from 2019, finishing 3rd overall in 2021 was a huge accomplishment. Many of our gyms didn’t return to full actual in gym training (Covid shutdown) until September or October. We won three individual all around titles and 11 individual event titles with many more top 10 finishes. Here is a breakdown of each age group.
