The date of the 2016 PBI is Friday-Saturday, February 26-27, with the final competition schedule dependent on entries. This tournament will again be held in McGonigle Arena at Temple University. Click on the Invitational tab above for more information. (Sunday is not available due to athletics activities.)
Temple University has not allowed us back into its facility, so we moved to a space in the 4700 Wissahickon industrial complex in Germantown. Directions and a schedule are below.
Philadelphia Boys' Gymnastics is a competitive program in the USA Gymnastics Jr. Olympic Program
(formerly Temple University Boys' Gymnastics Team)
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.
