The National Association of Intercollegiate Gymnastics Clubs (NAIGC) is a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to support collegiate club gymnastics in the United States. We are dedicated to the promotion and support of collegiate club gymnastics, “for the love of the sport.” The NAIGC hosted its first annual national championships in 1989, and incorporated as a non-profit and elected its first Board of Directors in 2006. The NAIGC was recognized as a tax-exempt public charity in 2008.
The elected Board of Directors, alongside their appointed advisors, run the NAIGC. Most of these dedicated volunteers are current and former college club gymnasts. Directors are elected by member clubs at the annual meeting at Nationals, and advisors are then chosen by the directors.
The Board of Directors provides administrative and technological support for the organization, for example by maintaining the NAIGC website with registration and scoring software and a database of its membership, as well as also providing executive support by developing policies to help the organization grow strategically and meet the needs of its members. They also produce branded merchandise for sale in an online store and at meets. Most importantly though, the Board organizes the NAIGC National Championships every year, where each member club is invited to participate in an inclusive collegiate national-level meet. Since Nationals is hosted at a different site every year, there is a fair amount of logistical coordination that goes into making this meet bigger and better every year.
Club membership in the NAIGC is open to any collegiate gymnastics club in the United States. Individual membership is open to anyone with an interest in collegiate club gymnastics.
