Peachtree Men's Invitational

The Peachtree Men’s Invitational is the longest standing and most respected men's gymnastics meet in the southeastern region of the United States.


 In 1983, Atlanta School of Gymnastics Head Boys Team Coach Gene Watson, founded the "Peachtree Men's Classic" with the support of booster club families Cook, Kirksey and a host of other ASG families and friends in the gymnastics community.  For 31 years, the tireless efforts of Head Coaches Gene Watson, Joe Strank and Nathan Simmons have produced over 35 scholarship recipients, 15 National champions, 20 National team members and 60 National Qualifiers who all consider the Peachtree Meet home. Well known for impeccable southern hospitality, the Peachtree competition has hosted 2 International Teams, 5 Olympians and World Team Members.   

In 2009, following the untimely death of mentor and ASG owner, Tom Cook, Nathan Simmons, founded "The Peachtree Invitational" with the purpose of continuing the rich legacy of the Peachtree Meet while expanding its mission to preserve and support men's gymnastics throughout the country.  An outgrowth of this effort was the establishment of the Watson~Raines Award which has provided scholarships to college bound  and elite gymnasts since 2011.


The mission of the Peachtree Men’s Invitational meet is to support the growth and viability of men's competitive gymnastics in the state of Georgia by providing a vehicle that showcases local and national talent, while developing community partnerships and resources that bring awareness to the sport.

A portion of the proceeds from the Peachtree Men's Invitational will benefit the Watson-Raines Gymnastics Award which provides a means for male, high school and elite competitive gymnasts to receive financial support in furthering their gymnastics training.
