about the New program initiative
What is the NPI?
The New Program Initiative was created to grow and sustain collegiate men’s gymnastics. We work to create new programs at the collegiate level while also providing resources to protect current programs. The NPI will develop and present material to universities with the goal to establish opportunities for collegiate men’s gymnastics. The NPI will also create and sustain fundraising mechanisms to back our mission.
In it’s prime, NCAA Men’s Gymnastics had over 200 sponsored programs, today there are 15 sponsored programs. Our goal is to reverse the trend and ensure the opportunities past generations had extend to future generations. Through a community effort we can pave a new future for years to come.
