The Medalist Club


The Medalist Club was founded in 1987 and is one of the largest gymnastics booster clubs in America. From inception, The Medalist Club has a long list of achievements:

  • First club to establish, fund and award postgraduate scholarships
  • The club has its own youth organization, Tide Tykes and Teens, to help promote the Crimson Tide Gymnastics Team through its younger fans
  • The Club has employed part-time college students to assist with marketing activities, event management, and day-to-day operations
  • The club has recently purchased a Swiss Wing for warm-up/cool down, recovery and injury prevention.  Additinal items purchased over the past few years include a video replay system for the practice facility that allows coaches and athletes the ability to instantaneously review the skill; a new sound system for the practice facility; and upgraded computers for the student-athletes' gymnastics study hall.

TRADITION NEVER GRADUATES
The Medalist Club proudly supports the University of Alabama Gymnastics’ student-athletes and support staff with postgraduate scholarships that allow them to continue their education towards a Master’s Degree from the University. This scholarship is one of Bama’s best recruiting tools, as it highlights the rich academic tradition and commitment of The Capstone and The Medalist Club to their student-athletes. Recent recipients include: Kim Jacob, Ashley Sledge, Morgan Dennis, Ashley O'Neal, Kassi Price, and Ricki Lebegern .
