Who We Are
Texas Gymnastics is a student-led organization that welcomes gymnasts from all backgrounds and experience levels. We offer two teams: Recreational and Competitive. Any affiliate of The University of Texas at Austin has the option of being on either team. We are a sponsored UT RecSports Club team that competes in the Texas Gymnastics Conference and the National Association of Intercollegiate Gymnastics Clubs. Both teams, as well as Texas Gymnastics alumni, train four days per week at Austin Gymnastics Club.
What We’re Fundraising For
We fundraise to finance the large costs that come with the sport of gymnastics – facility fees, meet entrance fees, hotels, flights, NAIGC Nationals, and other expenses. Our biggest fundraising initiative is Flips for Tips (FFT). If we’re not at Longhorn football tailgates around campus, we are doing flips and other gymnastics skills at the intersection of 183 and 360! We love to show the Austin community that UT Austin has a gymnastics team and that our club is willing to work very hard in order to keep our organization successful. In addition to FFT, we also sell Texas Gymnastics apparel and we host an annual meet in Austin at Austin Gymnastics Club.
Through the generosity and support of our donors, Texas Gymnastics continues to grow as a welcoming, enriching club here on the 40 Acres. This year, we are expanding our NAIGC National Championship roster from 24 to 32 athletes, which is a substantial improvement made possible by the financial support of our donors. Your gift allows our team to support larger team membership numbers, secures travel and housing for our athletes, funds new equipment and safety measures for our gym, and ensures the maintenance of quality for our program. Every donation, no matter the size, improves Texas Gymnastics and will support our program for years to come!
