National Association of Intercollegiate Gymnastics Clubs

Posted: 12.26.2017

High school graduation marks a turning point in our lives: we leave home, make new friends, find out how expensive groceries really are, and start to figure out who we are as adults. Unfortunately, due to diminishing opportunities at the collegiate level, the end of high school also marks the end of gymnastics careers for hundreds of young athletes. The National Association of Intercollegiate Gymnastics Clubs (NAIGC) is dedicated to the promotion and support of collegiate club gymnastics. With more than 115 university club teams and with over 1,500 active members, the NAIGC is creating widespread opportunities by providing students with avenues to continue competing at the collegiate level.

This past year we were proud to establish the NAIGC Scholarship Fund which awarded $1,500 scholarships to two male and two female gymnasts entering their first semester of college. Granted on the basis of financial need, dedication to the sport, and overall academic achievement, this scholarship fund has allowed these accomplished gymnasts to continue competing in the sport they love. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to continue to provide opportunities for future college gymnasts.

Here’s where we need your help:
We are asking for a tax-deductible gift of $100 to grow this program and ensure that gymnasts are focused on their passion rather than their finances. Your support will give gymnasts the unforgettable experience of collegiate competition and create lasting friendships.

You can make your donation via our secure portal at NAIGC Scholarships page, or you can email scholarships@naigc.org for information on how to mail a check. We sincerely thank you in advance for your support!

For the love of the sport,

Tim Michaels | President | NAIGC Board of Directors
| NAIGC.net | Facebook


About the NAIGC:

The NAIGC sanctions a network of regional collegiate club competitions throughout the country culminating in an annual National Championships with over 1,200 participants. In 2006, the NAIGC elected its first Board of Directors and incorporated as a nonprofit. The NAIGC was recognized as a tax-exempt public charity in 2008.

Today, an elected Board of Directors, alongside its Advisors, runs the NAIGC. Most of these dedicated volunteers are current and former college club gymnasts. The NAIGC hosts this annual National Championship meet, as well as other gymnastics events throughout the year and supports its member clubs with variety of technological and administrative services.

Club Membership in the NAIGC is open to any collegiate and/or adult community gymnastics club in the United States. Individual Membership is open to any interested person over the age of 18, or any 17 year-old who is enrolled in a college or university. For more information, visit www.naigc.net
