About this Site

In 2007 the Lakewood YMCA hosted the YMCA National Gymnastics Championships.  In updating the 'history' page for the meet program, I became interested in filling in the blanks.  This led to getting files from the YMCA archives in Chicago - and uncovering a wealth of information on the history of the National Championships. 

Any new information, stories and photos from gymnasts, coaches, and spectators attending this event over the years is welcome - just send it to:


I hope you enjoy the site!
