Women’s US national all-around champions

The Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) was the national governing body of gymnastics from 1897-1969, then USA Gymnastics took over as the official national governing body. According to USA Gymnastics, the USAG all-around champions from 1963-1969 aren't the official national champions, because there was no opposition from the AAU members at this time.
