  Friendly competition, tradition and prestige.

    You are invited to America's Youth on Parade, baton twirling's most prestigious event of the year, at the University of Notre Dame. There's no twirling spectacular quite like AYOP.  It brings together the best baton twirlers, teams and corps in the world for a series of National and World Open Championship contests - all under one umbrella.  It can be appropriately called the "World Series of Baton Twirling."   AYOP events are held in the spacious, air conditioned Notre Dame University Athletic and Convocation Center (JACC) and are sanctioned by the NBTA INTERNATIONAL.

    AYOP provides twirlers and twirling enthusiasts the opportunity to make new friends and renew old acquaintances while engaging in a host of important solo twirling and group twirling competitions. It truly sets the pace for the world of competitive twirling!

Come and see for yourself why this

 is the "can't miss" event of the year

 in the sport of baton twirling!
