2021 GymACT National Championships
Official competition 'digital program' below:
WELCOME TO OUR GYMACT NATIONALS!
Saturday, May 15 at 6:10 PM ET
WHAT A YEAR!!! To have our GymACT Collegiate Nationals on the floor of this Jr Championship this weekend was not even a THOUGHT in anyone's mind at the beginning of the year. But one thing that we all have learned to do to survive as a group was to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX! Virtual Competitions, starting a GymACT Conference Championship bracket, get our training and conditioning in any way we can, and finally, having the first-ever College National Championship in conjunction with this weekend's USAG Development Program National Championships. And we especially thank USAG's Lisa Mendel and Jason Woodnick along with Event Managers Al and Cindy Scharns for helping make this night a reality squeezing this championship meet in what was already a full and challenging National Meet. What a journey each of our teams has been on, but we are so glad to be here with you sharing this great event & weekend together.
GymACT is a non-profit (501C-3) organization whose mission is TO FOSTER THE GROWTH OF MEN'S COLLEGIATE GYMNASTICS. I know there are many of you coming to watch tonight that want to see more opportunities on the collegiate level. Well, we started with 6 teams in 2018, and last week we welcomed the 12th team to join- the University of Minnesota who will be competing with us starting next year. Tonight you will be watching 10 teams compete- 4 teams that will be competing as a team in these nationals for the 1st time. This means more opportunities for young aspiring gymnasts to have the awesome experience of being a part of a college team while pursuing a college education.
But with all the excitement, please understand that each team is non-funded by their respective schools and raise 100% of their budgets each year through fundraising, donations, and sponsorships. Please consider adopting a team and helping GymACT as a whole keep the great tradition of men's college gymnastics alive well into the future. We are currently looking for sponsorship partners that would like to be a part of seeing GymACT grow stronger in providing more opportunities for student-athletes in the coming years. If you are interested or know businesses/ corporations that are in a position to help, please contact me directly. And be sure to stop by our GymACT table to say hi and meet some of our coaches.
Now, sit back and enjoy the pleasure of an exciting evening of college team gymnastics as they come together to vie for the National Team title. And cheer on your favorite gymnast and team.
Is this a great sport or what?!
