MIT Gymnastics Club

MIT_gym.jpg Welcome to the website of the MIT Gymnastics Club! We are a club gymnastics team open to any and all interested MIT Affiliates (students, faculty, staff/employees, and alumni) who would like to do gymnastics at MIT, no experience necessary. For more information on eligibility for participation in club sports, please see here. In addition to those requirements, you must have access to the Z Center through either a membership or pass. You can follow us on social media here:

If you are not an MIT affiliate but still want to do adult gymnastics in the Boston area:

  • If you’re looking for an open gym/class: GymStreet in Wilmington offers open gyms with coaches available for tips and advice.
  • If you’re interested in competing for an adult team: check out Jurassic Gymnastics (which also practices out of the MIT gym).
  • If you're interested in getting into gymnastics but don't have any/much experience and/or don't want to compete: check out Everybody Gymnastics (which also practices out of the MIT gym).

COVID-19

The team follows all the latest MIT COVID policies, as described here. There are currently no COVID related restrictions in place regarding access or participation.

Competitive Team Practice Schedule

Our practice schedule for the summer is: Monday 5pm-9pm, Tuesday 5pm-7:30pm, Wednesday 6:30pm-9pm, Thursday 5pm-7:30pm, Friday 5pm-7:30pm, Saturday 10am-12:30pm, Sunday 4pm-6pm.

Practices are held seven days a week, year-round. We have a fully functional gymnastics facility with all six men’s apparatuses and all four women’s apparatuses. Our facility also contains numerous training apparatuses, including a tumbl-trak and tumble strip into a resi pit, a trampoline and a strap bar. We generally host two meets a season, and travel to compete in 4-6 meets per season. Additionally, each year the team travels to compete at NAIGC nationals (travel costs reimbursed relative to attendance over the course of the academic year). We have three superb coaches who are each in the gym one to four days a week, and many experienced gymnasts who can help you take your gymnastics to the next level.

Beginner orientations will be held on the first Monday of every month from November to March where less experienced members can be reminded or introduced to the basics of practice, competition, and gymnastics in general.

Beginner Class

We will be holding open classes weekly on Mondays from May through the end of October for $5/class, after which we are focused on preparing for the competitive season. All class members must have access to the Z Center through either a membership or a pass, and must be an MIT Affiliate (the same requirements exist for joining the team). The first day of practice for any newcomers in the fall wishing to join the team will be at the beginning of September. If you switch from the class to the team all class fees will be put towards your first team membership fee. All team members are welcome to attend the class (for free).

It’s never too late to join the gymnastics team. If you would like to contact us, please fill out the form below or send us a message at gymnastics-officers@mit.edu
