Breaking Gymnastics Norms with NAIGC President Julie Rolla

Episode Summary

UC Berkeley alum and current NAIGC president Julie Rolla joins Better Late to talk about how gymnasts can continue - or start - their gymnastics journey with the NAIGC. Julie talks about how NAIGC provides an outlet for learning and competition even if you’re not affiliated with a college club team, and even if you don’t yet have a gym to work out in. We talk about celebrating more than one mold, gymnastics diversity at the International stage, the NAIGC’s mission to create radical opportunity, and how to tell the gymnastics story you want, no matter what the traditional narrative says. Plus, Julie shares the many resources the NAIGC is providing and creating on a regular basis!
