Who Are We?
Cal Gymnastics Club is an organization run by volunteers passionate about gymnastics and making it accessible to everyone. Our mission is to offer gymnastics training for both recreational and competitive gymnasts. We are committed to being inclusive, as our team is composed of UC Berkeley students, staff, alumni, and community members and our experience levels range from beginners to formerly competitive gymnasts.
We are a competition-focused team that travels to meets all over the country. Our goal is to raise money to cover some of the expenses of traveling to competitions. Gymnastics is a very expensive sport, and as a club, we try to absorb some of the individual costs so we don’t put too much financial burden on our members. We raise most of our money by hosting fundraisers run by our members. Fundraising is essential to our mission because we want meets to be available to all of our members and we don’t want people to be excluded by the cost.
This year, 25 members of our team will be traveling to Daytona Beach, Florida to compete in the National competition sponsored by the National Association of Intercollegiate Gymnastics Clubs (NAIGC). Nationals is the biggest college club gymnastics meet in the country and the highlight of our competitive season. We train hard all year long, including summers, to prepare for this very important event.
Please help support the Cal Gymnastics Club and your donations will help send our team to nationals where we can represent UC Berkeley in the biggest competition of the year. Many of us attending NAIGC Nationals have never competed before, and it’s amazing to give so many people this opportunity. Last year at Nationals in Fort Worth, Texas, our men’s team won the Open Division Team Finals. We also participated in breaking two Guinness World Records for most simultaneous somersaults and most simultaneous handstands. Attending this competition is something very special to us, and our most important team activity by far.
Thank you to all our donors for your support! We couldn’t do it without you and your gifts.
