About this project

Our Turnschule (school for gymnastics) is a family, our mission: we offer female gymnasts a holistic education and strengthen them for the rest of their lives.
We are not only focused in strengthen their physicality. No, by training them to be coaches and judges, they learn to make decisions and take responsibility at an early age. Through their involvement in the gymnastics school youth, they take on social responsibility. 

NeckarGym - a strong community
Our 1st team competes in the 3rd Bundesliga, in 2021 they were runners-up. The training for this is hard and demands many privations, the athletes are in the gym six times a week. Until now, we had a 2nd training hall in Ostfildern with professional equipment. This hall has been closed in the meantime. Especially the loss of the landing pit hits us hard.
A landing pit is a pit filled with foam parts (chips). Such a pit is important for learning difficult elements on the step bar or on the vaulting table. Who falls in here can not hurt himself.

NeckarGym - We have to build it ourselves
We searched for a long time but did not find an alternative solution that would support our intensive training. Therefore, we decided to start planning the construction of our own landing pit in 2021. 
In 2021 we have intensively investigated different designs and evaluated what is possible. The building application has been submitted in the meantime. We will have to extend our gymnasium with an annex. This extension will then contain the pit, which will have to be excavated and shuttered. All in all, we are currently expecting total costs of € 150,000. 

NeckarGym - achieving more together

This sum is partly financed by subsidies from the WLSB and the city of Nürtingen. However, our gymnasium is privately owned, which means that the remaining costs must be borne by the gymnastics school. For this we talk to our supporters, private loans are taken out, also our members participate financially through a levy.  
The gymnastics school is a small association, we have about 100 members, accordingly this project is a big financial burden for us, which we want to relieve with this donation project something.
