A New School Year Brings New Teams

TGC Annual Meeting Elects 2016-2017 Board

September 14, 2016

Earlier this month the TGC held its annual meeting at the GAT conference in Austin, TX. Representatives from our schools held the meeting to conduct annual business, including creating the season's meet schedule and electing the board for the new year.

With the new outreach program instituted last year the TGC is now assisting students in facilitating new club teams at schools around the state. If you or anyone you know is attending college and is interested in club gymnastics please contact us or have them fill out our contact form! We have several new freshmen and are starting new teams at Austin Community College, UT El Paso, UNT, and several smaller schools around the state. We would love to have a team at all of the large schools in Texas and are currently looking for teammates for some gymnasts at our smaller schools.

The TGC has also recognized the growing industry market for competitive adult gymnastics, many of whom are our recently graduated college athletes and we are exited to help grow the sport in this new direction. If you are interested in the adult league please let us know.

The 2016-2017 TGC board was also elected at the annual meeting:

  • Katie Thompson, President (Texas A&M)
  • Andrew Hutcheson, Vice President (UT Austin)
  • Justin Powers, Secretary-Treasurer (McMurry University)
  • Sydney Riegel, Director (Texas A&M)
  • Zach Bennett, Director (UT Austin)

Texas High School Gymnastics Coaches Association Hopes to Earmark Scholarships for College Club Programs

THSGCA to Work in Expanding Sport's Presence in Texas

April 3, 2015

In an announcement earlier today, Mark Sherman, the President of the Texas High School Gymnastics Coaches Association (THSGCA) announced an initiative to help fund-raise for high school programs and earmark scholarships for collegiate athletes. Having recently become its own 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity, the THSGCA has released the following statement regarding a competition to take place at the High School State Gymnastics Championship on May 1st and 2nd at Chisholm Trail High School:

Get as many of your alumni to attend the State Championship this year at Chisolm Trail. Have them fill out their contact information in the high school history booth, donate $5.00 (or more) and we could award your program $50.00 per alumni up to $2,000.

The top three schools from the host meet area (Region I and IV) AND the top three schools from the non-host meet area (Region II and III) will get the money - six schools in total.

After 49 years, we are now actively seeking alumni info in order to raise money, awareness and support for the THSGCA. We hope to earmark donations for scholarships to Texas HS Gymnasts who continue competing in Texas College Club Programs!

Get your alumni there!

Questions? Email Mark Sherman.

THSGCA Treasurer, Cameron Sweny added: "This is the first step in a long process to build a working relationship between Texas High School Gymnastics and the "Texas Gymnastics Conference" of college club gymnastics."

This news comes off of the successful fund-raising effort last year by Texas A&M University who raised $4,000 for their program through alumni donations.

"As the TGC has grown in recent years we find ourselves with more and more gymnasts participating well into their college careers. As the size of competitions scales upward and new clubs appear at schools throughout the state, we need to find new ways to handle and fund that growth without increasing costs for our student athletes who are paying their way through college," added Andrew Hutcheson, TGC President. "We are exited about the THSGCA's initiatives and look forward to working with them to provide gymnasts with opportunities after high school."

If you would like to make a donation to support high school athletes, or any information about high school programs in Texas, please contact Mark Sherman. For information regarding collegiate club programs and the TGC, please use the contact us form by clicking the link to the left. More information on the THSGCA can be found on their website.

Congratulations to our newest member schools!

The University of Oklahoma and Tulane University join the TGC.

January 10, 2015

The University of Oklahoma and Tulane University have been inducted into the TGC!

Founded 35 years ago, the TGC has been the driving force behind collegiate club gymnastics in the state of Texas. With very limited NCAA opportunities in the state, the TGC has made its mission to improve and promote the sport in the state at a collegiate level. The success of the TGC has allowed gymnasts to continue their passion for the sport and continue to challenge themselves while building memories that will last a lifetime.

This year, the TGC has inducted the University of Oklahoma and Tulane University to join our organization and create those memories with us. As we move forward, our two new members, currently the only club university gymnastics programs in their respective states, will gain more opportunities to participate in competitions and join in our ever growing community.

Welcome to our new website!

We have reinvented our web presence.

On behalf of all our members, we would like to welcome you to our new website. The Texas Gymnastics Conference has been growing in the past decade and to help better facilitate our message and better communicate what we are all about, we have given ourselves a facelift, complete with mobile support.

Over the next few months we will be expanding the information on our website, adding new sections and more history, photos, videos and media. Stay Tuned!
