The American Turners is a national organization founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1848 by German immigrants. Our motto, "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body", explains the purpose of the American Turners. We are a family organization, encouraging people of all ages to be mentally and physically active.
Our 53 Societies, located in 12 Districts throughout the United States, participate in athletic and cultural activities. Many have gymnasiums and teach gymnastics and other sports to people of all ages. We have yearly national competitions in gymnastics, golf, bowling, softball, volleyball, and cultural activities. In addition there are regional events in other sports.
Please welcome new National Corporate Secretary/Administrator Michael Siberz.
The official business hours of the National Office are 9 am to 5 pm Central Time, Monday through Friday.
The National office telephone and fax numbers remain unchanged and can be found at the bottom of this page.
