Are you or your child interested in learning certain skills in gymnastics or tumbling? Well you’re in the right place. NGTC will be starting Skill clinics on Saturday, June 9th in Gresham. Clinics will start at 1:00 PM and will have varying lengths depending on the skill(s) for that clinic. We will be starting with a handstand clinic for all of you who want to perfect your handstands. Our kid friendly staff have a hands-on approach to help your child get the skill(s) he/she has always been dreaming of (or been doing in the living room at your home). Led by two of NGTC’s top coaches, EJ and Charlie, your kids will learn so much that they will want to keep coming back. EJ and Charlie will focus on everything from body shaping, to progressions, to flexibility, and everything in between. Join us June 9th at 1:00 PM for our first Handstand clinic. Registration can be done online, at the parent portal, or at the front office.
NGTC recently traveled to Chicago, Il for the Chicago style meet. With over 4,200 gymnasts this is the world’s largest meet. And they won. We sent 2 teams, Level 6 and Level 3, both short handed teams managed to pull out the upset victories over teams from around the world. Both levels have remained undefeated over the last 3 seasons. However, the biggest win was the team bonding with the gymnasts and their families. Many families went to enjoy the meet and the city of Chicago. We hosted a team dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe where we danced and had fun.
Are you wanting to become a world class gymnast? Tryouts are coming on May 5th, 2018. Let’s see you there!
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all our great members that made 2017 so memorable! What an extraordinary year for us, and the thanks goes to you, all of our wonderful families!
We will be closed December 23-January 1st, 2018 for all recreational classes and activities. We cannot wait to see everyone once again in the new year!
Please have a very safe and enjoyable Holiday Season!
Your NGTC Staff

Congratulations to the NGTC Level 3 and Level 4 Junior Olympic Compulsory Teams for their sixth straight win this season! All levels are coming off impressive performances at the Harvest Invitational. And while the 2's, 3's and 4's all scored wins these past meets, none was more impressive than the performance turned in by the Level 3 Team this past weekend.
Level 3 Team scored an impressive 116.275 team score (perfect score is 120) to catapult NGTC into the 39th best team score for that level in the country, and the only gym to break the top 100 in the Northwest! With approximately 5,200 USA Gymnastics affiliated gyms across the country, securing a spot in the top 40 is quite an accomplishment!
Level 4's are only .05 points away from the #100 spot, also very impressive.
Several of our gymnasts also earned a top 100 ranking, including Avery (Level 3) for making Floor with a 9.85. Samantha (Level 3) also on Floor with a 9.8. Jasmine (Level 3) for making Balance Beam with score of 9.8. Rachel (Level 4) on Floor with a 9.8.

All of our NGTC Optional Gymnasts had at least 8.2 or higher on every event and, as a team, we had NO FALLS on Balance Beam or Bars for the entire State Meet!
While we have a long way to go, we are very proud of this group of girls that have come so far in such a short period of time!
Congratulations to Coach Dawn Allen for a great job! This year marks her first full-season in Oregon (moved from Minnesota to Gresham to Coach at NGTC) coaching at NGTC. Thanks in large part to her efforts and expertise, this performance marked the first time in HISTORY that an NGTC Optional Team has finished in the Top 5 at the State Championships dating all the way back to 2008 when NGTC was formed!
