1. NAIGC Club membership fee: $75 per club (NAIGC Membership Online)
Club membership is required to compete in NAIGC sponsored meets (Nationals for this season) and to participate in other NAIGC activities (i.e., clinics/camps). The club membership fee can be paid online by any authorized club representative. All NAIGC member clubs this year will receive a free NAIGC Banner bearing the club's name. The proceeds go to help fund and support the organization.
2. NAIGC Individual membership fees: $30 per person (NAIGC Membership Online)
Individual membership is required from each individual to compete in NAIGC sponsored meets (Nationals for this season) and to participate in other NAIGC activities (i.e., clinics/camps).

We also offer a $15 coach's membership for team coaches and non-competing gymnasts that will allow those individuals floor access. Please note that only the full membership will include the membership gift. All of these proceeds go to help fund and support the organization. The membership fees are separate from Nationals meet fees.
Each participant must have their own username and password. Members who participated at Nationals in prior years should use their old username and password. To reset a forgotten password or to set up a new username and password, go to NAIGC Membership Online. For additional username or password help, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
