National Gymnastics Association Program

The Portage Township YMCA competitive team gymnastics is a proud member of the National Gymnastics Association (NGA). The NGA was created by the gymnastics community to provide a positive and healthy competitive and wellness program for the sport of gymnastics that will permit participants of all ages and ability levels to achieve their own personal goals.  They are governed by one set of rules, one set of deductions, and one goal; to keep the business of gymnastics strong by providing a fun, safe environment for all levels of athletes. 

 While NGA competition is inclusive of all genders, the Portage Township YMCA team program is exclusive to females due to the availbility of differing equipment.

In addition to the YMCA monthly program fees which includes 4-hours of practice time per week, there is an annual $35 athlete fee paid directly to NGA, and team equipment such as, but not limited to competition leotard.
