  • USA GYMNASTICS Message Dear Members,

    The new message for USA Gymnastics is, Begin Here. Go Anywhere. Those of us involved in Group Gymnastics (GG) activities believe that we have found the Perfect Beginning that truly can take the participants anywhere! The recreational aspects, fun nature, broad range of activities and health benefits of group gymnastics make it a perfect starting point.

    Group Gymnastics is growing! Many gymnastics clubs in the USA have come to realize that they have long been providing GG activities for their members, but just didn't know that it had a name. If you do recitals, shows, demonstrations, half-time exhibitions, parades, or provide dance classes, aerobics instruction, etc.-then you already do GG! Why not learn more and, not only formalize your participation, but provide more GG programs at your gym?

    In 2004, the number of participating registered GG participants in the USA Gymnastics membership programs more than doubled from the previous year( (3,200+ athletes and 575 coaches/judges) .. We attribute this to greater understanding of the potential and benefits of GG participation, increased number of GG events, high interest in the TeamGymn competitive program, and the new Introductory Membership program provided by USA Gymnastics for Group Gymnastics as well as for other groups. This membership is available online, 24 hours per day, and membership cards can be obtained withi n 24 hours.

    USA Gymnastics provides two GG programs. The first, called GymFests or displays, involves groups performing their own kind of gymnastics. These are non-competitive routines, there are no "rules", and the only limitations to the choreography is generally the space and equipment available, performance time, and the abilities/experience of the performers. USA Gymnastics conducts an annual National Gym Fest each year. The 2004 National Gym Fest was on the campus of UNLV in Las Vegas. The 2005 National Gym Fest is scheduled for July in Ft. Worth , Texas. Additionally, an increasing number of clubs are hosting invitational-type GymFests each year all around the country ... usually in fun "destination-city" locations such as Las Vegas, Orlando, San Diego,
