The URI Gymnastics Club team was founded immediately after termination of the Division I program. The club has participated in the National Association of Intercollegiate Gymnastics (NAIGC) for the past seven years. Over this time, the club has taken a strong dedication to their sport practicing four days a week as well as attending separate conditioning sessions.
In 2008-2009, as a first year club, the team placed eleventh in the nation at the NAIGC Nationals in Atlanta GA. In 2009-2010 the team was the Co-National Champion at the NAIGC Nationals in Texas. More recently, in 2014, the team placed second at nationals in Chattanooga, TN, maintaining that title last year in Philadelphia, PA. This year the team will be competing in Sacramento, CA.
The gymnastics team, like many other club sports, must do most of our fundraising for ourselves. If you would like to help us fund our way to nationals and support the team we have set up a fan page where you can buy URI gymnastics gear. Click here to help send us to Columbus!
