There are over 100,000 young athletes participating in competitive gymnastics today. Current data suggests that, on average, for every 1000 hours of participation of gymnastics there is 1 injury. For a competitive gymnast, that's an average of 1-2 injuries per year. These injuries result in medical costs, time away from gymnastics, potential for a life-long modification in all athletic pursuits, and the heartache of having to prematurely end a competitive season or career because of injury.
gymSAFE is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide gymnastics professionals and athletes with the tools and knowledge to prevent gymnastics-related injuries.
Our vision is:
:: To increase safety in the sport of gymnastics.
:: To provide a platform that integrates the expertise of sports-focused health professionals, the experience of gymnastics professionals, and sports science data.
:: To promote the concept that gymnastics injury prevention is a vital component of gymnastics excellence.
Our goal is to do whatever we can to prevent injury. We need the support of the gymnastics community to help make this happen. Here’s how you can help:
:: Schedule a gymSAFE Evalution Screen for your entire artistic gymnastics team
:: Schedule an educational workshop for your gym
Your donation will help us spread the word about our services, bring the gymSAFE Screen to gyms around the US, and donate injury prevention equipment to gyms.www.discovergymsafe.org
