National Gymnastics Day 2017 (NGD2017)

16 August 2017. This initiative is the brainchild of USA Gymnastics and has been implemented over the past 2 decades. The initiative has grown from strength to strength with growth in club membership and even the traction of sponsors. SAGF will be once again participating in this global initiative on 16th September 2017.

The key focus of this NGD2017 is to promote Fitness, Friendship & Fun. This fun event creates an ideal platform to raise awareness of not only gymnastics, but of the actual Club. Club owners should see this initiative as a promotional event to market their Clubs. Further Clubs could use this platform to showcase their gymnasts who will be participating in the upcoming National Gym Games in October 2017.

How do you participate?

  • Participants are encouraged to “show their skills” by performing any gymnastics skill/movement or routine and capture this either on a video or photo. This can be done at home, school, at the Club or any other convenient location. The idea is to make this as fun as possible.
  • The next step is to upload the video (should not be more than 20seconds) or best photo/s to the SAGF Facebook Page with tag #SANGD2017
  • Once uploaded, we encourage participants to Like us on Facebook and follow us at Twitter.

SAGF will have a selection committee who will then view and rate all uploads. Winners in the different categories (Video and Photos) will then be selected and announced at the Gym Games 2017 Ceremony. The winners will receive prizes and their Clubs will be promoted as well.

We humbly request for participation in this fun initiative. Communicate with your gymnasts and parents to promote and participate in NGD2017. It is an initiative to celebrate gymnastics and build awareness and demand to make gymnastics the sport of choice among our youth. The knock on effect will be growth of gymnastics in the Province and Clubs.
