History of BGT
"Berks Gymnastics is an established organization that has been a part of Berks County’s non-profit business community for over 40 years. This prestigious tradition has been serving its community by providing young female athletes with a world class training facility, allowing the program participants the opportunity to develop gymnastic, social and leadership skills that they may not other wise be exposed to. The life lessons these girls learn will stay with them for the rest of their lives."”The Berks Gymnastic Team is a 501C-3 nonprofit organization that relies solely on the support of its parents association and on donations from the private and business sectors here in Berks County. We need the help and support of generous individuals like you now more then ever due to the ever rising costs of training, travel and equipment expenses. When you support B.G.T. you can feel proud of the fact that you are supporting a locally based world class athletic team. We are as committed as ever to our goal of achieving excellence."
"The Berks Gymnastic Team consists of approximately 35 girls who compete locally, nationally and internationally. Since the teams’ inception in 1975, over 70 seniors have received college scholarships. These girls are stronger, more confident and have more self-esteem then their non-athletic counterparts."
"The Berks Gymnastic Team’s history includes numerous remarkable accomplishments including 19 Pennsylvania State Team Champions, 39 International Gold Medals, 2 members on World Championship Teams, 33 National Champions, over 60 college scholarships and an Olympian."
