INDIANAPOLIS – All this week, USA Gymnastics will join fans, athletes and the entire gymnastics community to celebrate National Gymnastics Day. Observed each year on the third Saturday of September, #NGD2023 is September 16.
Each year on National Gymnastics Day, gymnastics clubs throughout the U.S. provide fun and interactive activities, including open houses and free or low-cost introductory classes, that increase exposure to the sport and allow them to share information with their local communities about the programs offered at their gyms.
The event is accompanied by an online celebration, uniting athletes, coaches, club administrators, parents and fans around their shared love for gymnastics. Members of the gymnastics community are encouraged to share their flips, leaps, handstands and enthusiasm for the sport on social media using the hashtag #NGD2023. Posts that tag USA Gymnastics may be shared on the organization’s official channels throughout the day.
Each USA Gymnastics member club received a commemorative event banner to display on National Gymnastics Day and will have the opportunity to win a shopping spree from USAG’s official partner, GK Elite. To be eligible to win, clubs must post a photo or video of their gym members with the official banner on their public Facebook, Instagram, TikTok or Twitter accounts on or before September 16 using the hashtag #NGD2023 and tagging @gkelite. The winning club will be randomly selected.
