We are actively monitoring the effect COVID-19 will have on the competition, and we will keep our membership posted as the situation develops.
The community division originated because there are some clubs whose schools will only provide funding for nationals if it is a collegiate-only competition.
When the NAIGC was created, it only catered to collegiate clubs. As athletes graduated, they couldn’t find a venue for continuing the sport of gymnastics, so the NAIGC stepped up to fill that need. This is aligned with our core value of providing radical opportunity.
Allowing cross gender competition aligns with the NAIGC’s core value of providing radical opportunity. Gymnastics is one of the few sports that offers different opportunities based on gender, and the NAIGC is working to provide equal opportunity for all participants.
The scoring software used by the NAIGC is custom to the organization because our rules are so unique in order to cater to all the needs of our members. This software is built by a corps of volunteers on top of their full time jobs. Every time we change the rules in reaction to membership feedback, major software changes are required. The board recognizes this is a huge area for improvement and has placed high priority on related tasks.
Top of session qualification requires enough information about each team to properly seed sessions. Due to inconsistency between scoring across the country, lack of sanctioned meets, and the low number of competitions offering certain levels, fair session seeding is not possible at this time.
For WAG developmental, we do not have enough participation to warrant offering finals. In 2019, developmental had half the number of participants as Level 7 and Level 9. For MAG Developmental, we don’t have enough space in finals because all levels must share the same equipment.
MAG has no uniform deductions, so wear proper attire for doing gymnastics. WAG gymnasts should compete in a leotard or singlet. Shorts are allowed, but should be black or match the main color of your top.
Non-NAIGC members may purchase banquet tickets through the NAIGC store online.
