Our Founding Fathers
Rob Esse - Willmar, John Evans - Northfield, Craig
Sandburg - New Prague, Mike Taylor - Faribault, Scott Young - St. Louis Park
In 1982, out of the ashes of the old Minnesota Independent League, five clubs got together at Young's Gymnastics Academy in St. Louis Park to form the Minnesota Amateur Gymnastics Association, a few years later, renamed to the "Midwest" Amateur Gymnastics Association to reflect the number of teams from all over the upper Midwest that were involved.
A thank you and a tribute to the "Founding Fathers" who had the foresight to create an organization that would last a benefit thousands of young athletes.
That first year, the above mentioned clubs competed 6 teams at the "State" meet. in 2012 MAGA had 57 clubs and 119 teams competing in both women's and men's gymnastics with 1068 registered athletes
This program promotes fair competition in a no pressure fun for the gymnast atmosphere. The goal of MAGA is to help prepare participants for high school gymnastics. For more information see our Policy and Rules Section.
