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 and benefit thousands of young athletes.
That first year, the above mentioned clubs competed 6 teams at the "State" meet. In 2016 MAGA had 57 clubs and 161 teams competing in girls gymnastics with 1592 registered athletes.
Association members follow all rules and regulations set by NFHS.
