In early 2001, approximately 100 gymnasts gathered in Jacksonville for the first Sweetheart Invitational. It took just a few years to outgrow the in-house format... and morph into The Emerald Classic! Over two decades later, we have grown into one of the largest meets in Arkansas hosting over 10,000 gymnasts from seven different states.
In 2023, we hosted 920 gymnasts
from Arkansas, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee!
Flip into the heart of Downtown Little Rock on the banks of the Arkansas River
