SMG Foundation was developed by a group of motivated and concerned parents who saw a need to raise awareness for Men’s Gymnastics.
Men’s Gymnastics has seen a dramatic decline since the 1970's. In 1969 NCAA Men’s Gymnastics had more than 210 programs, today there are only 12 teams that remain as a Division 1 NCAA sponsored sport. With the introduction of Title IX in 1972, as a way to ensure gender equality coupled with the rising cost of athletic programs, the sport finds itself struggling.
