USAG YouTube Channel Restrictions


For months I’ve enjoyed all the videos uploaded by USA Gymnastics to YouTube and have commended them on their hard work and effort, especially through this years World Championships. They were so efficient in providing up to the minute footage to those of us who couldn’t view coverage online or on tv.

I tried to access the USAG YouTube Channel this last night and discovered this:

I’ve never had a problem like this before. Is anyone else outside the USA or Canada experiencing this?Or does anyone know the reason for the message that appears? I can view the videos but only when I search for “USA Gymnastics”. I had subscribed to the channel but this is since gone from my subscriptions.

Fingers crossed that this is only a mistake, I’ll be very annoyed if this is a permanent change.


  1. Same problem in Canada.

    I emailed Leslie King at USAG to see if it’s just a glitch.

    Or if it’s some new policy.

    Cheers Rick! 🙂

  3. Leslie confirms there was a temporary geo block. Something to do with the USAG Christmas Card video.

    It should be free for all again soon.

  4. Admin says:

    Thanks for the update Rick – much appreciated!

  5. Mirren. (From Australia) says:

    I looked it up just then, and I had no problem with it.

  6. Admin says:

    Hi Mirren,

    It seems to be fixed now, as Rick said it seemed to just be a bug…phew!
