Our coaches have over 215 years of combined experience!

We choose to coach at Gem City because we love coaching and we love gymnastics and tumbling. Some of us landed in gymnastics because we were hyperactive kids, others were naturally talented gymnasts or tumblers, and still others got into the sport to develop basic coordination. (Oh, did we mention fun? That’s why we all stuck with it!) No matter how we got here, coaching is now our passion.

Gymnastics and tumbling is something that has added value to our lives. We want to extend this value to our athletes whether they are 3 or 30, totally inexperienced or an elite level competitor. These sports are challenging. Your body must be strong, but your mind needs to be stronger. We help strengthen both with our coaching approach that is safety centered, positive, and knows when to offer a kick in the pants.
