Philadelphia Boys' Gymnastics is the only program in Philadelphia dedicated to boys' gymnastics.
PBG is a non-profit organization and has received grants this season from Philadelphia Boys' Gymnastics Team Parents' Association, The Philadelphia Foundation and the Scholler Foundation.
PBG is located in the 4700 Wissahickon Avenue industrial complex in Germantown. We recently moved to a different space within this large building. Coming off Roberts Avenue, turn into Entrance B and park as close to the building entrance as you can (lots of parking available). If you come off Abbottsford (which parallels Roosevelt Expy=Route 1) and the gate is open, turn into Entrance A and head to the far end of the building, passing "Material Culture" on the left. Our green-door entrance, which doesn't yet have our name by it, has large signs overhead for "TAIG" and "Clarissa." Walk up the stairs or take the elevator to the second floor. Pass through another door and walk by CLarissa and PromGirl on the right. Pass through the next door and you'll enter a hallway. We're at the end of this hallway on the right.

Gymnastics is a terrific way for a boy to learn neat skills and improve his physical condition. Gymnastics improves fitness, strength, flexibility, balance, timing and agility. It encourages teamwork, planning and perseverence. Our regular schedule runs September 6 - June 16.
Philadelphia Boys' Gymnastics is a competitive program in the USA Gymnastics Jr. Olympic Program
The primary purpose of this program is to provide Philadelphia-area youth with a quality training and competitive experience in boys’ gymnastics, within the framework of the USA Gymnastics Boys’ Jr. Olympic Structure. A secondary purpose is to support the Temple University Men's Gymnastics Team. Our facility is in the 4700 Wissahickon Avenue industrial complex in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. Directions and a map are available below. Also, SEPTA bus lines H and XH stop in front of our building.
PBG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and gladly accepts tax-deductible donations to further its effort to promote boys' gymnastics and support the Temple University Men's Gymnastics Team, which no longer receives financial support from Temple Athletics as it was demoted from varsity to club status as of July 1, 2014.

Here's a 12-minute video put together by coach Pat Henley showing our students and coaches talking about our program and their various reasons for being part of us. It was originally shown at coach Fred's retirement (from Temple U head coaching) party.
There is ample lot parking at this complex. Coming off Roberts Avenue, turn into Entrance B and park as close to the building entrance as you can (lots of parking available). If you come off Abbottsford (which parallels Roosevelt Expy=Route 1) and the gate is open, turn into Entrance A and head to the far end of the building, passing "Material Culture" on the left. Our green-door entrance, which doesn't yet have our name by it, has large signs overhead for "TAIG" and "Clarissa." We operate outside normal hours for other businesses there, so disregard the parking lot signs.
