TeamGym is an ever growing discipline of gymnastics that is growing at an exponential rate ever since the first European Championships in 1996.

Gymnastics Federation of Slovenia (GZS) is the organizer of the 11th European TeamGym Championships 2016. TeamGym 2016 is being prepared under the auspices of the European Union of Gymnastics (UEG). This time the championship will take place between 12 and 15 October 2016 in the Sports hall of the People's Garden (Ljudski vrt) "Lukna (Hole)" in Maribor. Popularity of gymnastic branch "TeamGym", which derives from the Scandinavian countries, in Europe and in the world has been rising rapidly. We assume that after TeamGym 2016 championship this gymnastic branch in Maribor and in Slovenia will be rapidly developing too.

Branch consists of three disciplines: group composition, acrobatic jumps on the track and jumping from flexible tilts in different categories: men, women and mixed youth and senior team. The team is made up of 8 to 12 contestants, while assessing each competitor individually. All disciplines require efficient teamwork, excellent technique and spectacular acrobatic elements. TeamGym championships are renowned for exceptional gymnastic and acrobatic elements and incredible atmosphere at the venues, creating by masses of young athletes, their escorts and visitors.

Event TeamGym 2016 is firstly dedicated to sport, but experiences from previous championships confirmed the desire of young athletes to learn more about new places, people and especially for socializing with them. In the time of the championships in Maribor we expect more than 1,500 participants from all over Europe. As organizers of the 11th European Championship we will offer you possibility of discovering our city and country at the highest level. The aim of the organizer of the championship is to make universally appealing and unrepeatable event for everyone that will join us at early October in Maribor and in "Lukna" Sport Hall.
