Collegiate Gymnastics Growth Initiative

NCGIGrowth Initiative

The Collegiate Gymnastics Growth Initiative (CGGI), was formed to promote awareness in the pursuit and addition of new women’s collegiate gymnastics programs across the country, thus providing more opportunities for college bound gymnasts. We would like to extend an invitation to gymnastics clubs nationwide to support and assist our Initiative’s needs through donations.

As interest in collegiate gymnastics continues to grow, funds are necessary to cover production materials, administrative costs and travel for representatives of CGGI, as they provide promotional and informative presentations to conference and athletic administrators nationwide. Every dollar of contributions made will be used to help defray these expenses.
