NATIONAL GOVERNING BODIES
National Governing Bodies are organizations that look after all aspects of individual sports. The NGBs are responsible for training, competition and development for their sports, as well as nominating athletes to the U.S. Olympic, Paralympic, Youth Olympic, Pan American and Parapan American teams.
There are currently 31 Olympic summer sport NGBs in the United States, as well as eight Olympic winter sport NGBs and eight Pan American sport NGBs. Paralympic sports are managed by either the USOC, Olympic NGBs or Paralympic Sport Organizations.
