The IPDGC was founded in 1980 as a means to provide an alternative recreational gymnastics competition arena to local Parks and Recreation gymnastics programs.  Since its inception, we have grown to close to 20 area park districts participating in our various divisions.

We offer recreational competitions for boys and girls, starting as young as 3-years old.  Many of our gymnasts start with our Tumbling division, which introduces the younger athlete to competition and memorization of routines.  In our compulsory division, the gymnasts learn a specific routine that they are judged on their technique and form upon.  In our optional division, the gymnasts have the freedom to create their own routines following specific criteria for each apparatus.

The IPDGC places a strong emphasis on the enjoyment of a recreational activity, and not the outcome of the competition.  We have always believed in our core ideology of "Students First: Winning Second."
