2014 YMCA National Gymnastics Championships

Y Nationals Photo - Gymnast FlippingWe are thrilled and honored to welcome 2,000 Y gymnasts from across the country for the 2014 YMCA Gymnastics National Championships next summer. The Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA and Sarasota Family YMCA were selected to host the four-day event, which is expected to bring an estimated $4.5 million in economic impact to the Tampa Bay community. Following an Olympic-style opening ceremony at Raymond James Stadium on Wednesday, July 2nd, the gymnasts will compete inside the Tampa Convention Center Thursday-Saturday, July 3rd-July 5th. This is, by far, the largest meet of the season and it is something these gymnasts prepare for year round. Good luck to all of the Y gymnasts participating. We look forward to seeing everyone in Tampa next July! For more information please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

President’s Message

Tom Looby

We, here at the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA, are thrilled to work with the Sarasota Family YMCA to host the 2014 YMCA Gymnastics National Championships. It’s a huge honor to lead such a spectacular event that celebrates not only the sport of gymnastics but the positive, supportive environment the Y provides children and teens so they can strengthen their skills, confidence and relationships. An event of this magnitude will not only help spread the word about the Y helping kids discover their potential through youth sports; it also means economic impact for the greater Tampa Bay area.

 

In order to be successful, however, we could use your help! If you’re interested in volunteering or sponsoring, please reach out to Bob Sierra Y’s Operations Executive Kirsten Barton, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 813-962-3220. It’s a huge responsibility, but has the potential for making an even bigger and positive impact not only on the Y but the entire Tampa Bay area. Thanks to the staff and volunteers from the Tampa and Sarasota Ys, Y-USA, Tampa Bay & Company and the Tampa Sports Commission for their hard work to make this a terrific event!

 

See you at the Y!

 

Tom Looby
President & CEO
