AS A LONG TIME COACH IN THE ALL STAR WORLD, I WANTED TO CREATE A NEW TYPE OF ALL STAR GYM EXPERIENCE- ONE IN WHICH ATHLETES CAN TRAIN IN A SAFE, POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT, WITH COACHES WHO TRULY CARE ABOUT EACH INDIVIDUAL ATHLETE AND THEIR GOALS AND NEEDS. I DIDN’T WANT TO JUST BE ANOTHER GYM THAT PLACES ATHLETES IN A POSITION FOR AN IMMEDIATE WIN, WHILE IGNORING THE FUTURE AND THE ATHLETE’S INDIVIDUAL POTENTIAL. I WANTED TO START A PROGRAM THAT FOCUSED ON BUILDING ALL ATHLETES EQUALLY, WHETHER BEGINNER OR ADVANCED, WHERE ATHLETES FEEL COMFORTABLE REGARDLESS OF THEIR SKILL SET, AND WHERE WE ARE SETTING EACH ATHLETE UP FOR SUCCESS IN ALL OF THEIR ENDEAVORS- COLLEGE AND BEYOND! I FEEL THAT, DESPITE ONLY BEING IN OUR 3RD SEASON, WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED THIS.

OUR TUMBLING AND SUMMER CAMP PROGRAMS REFLECT THE SAME VALUES- PROVIDING HIGH QUALITY TRAINING IN A FAMILY-FRIENDLY GYM, AND HELPING KIDS TO BUILD STRENGTH AND CONFIDENCE IN THEIR SKILLS.

OUR ALL STAR PROGRAM HAS RECEIVED PRESTIGIOUS HONORS SUCH AS A BID TO THE SUMMIT, PAID BIDS TO THE US FINALS, A US FINALS CHAMPIONSHIP, AND NUMEROUS REGIONAL AND NATIONAL TITLES. WE LIKE WINNING, BUT WILL NEVER JEOPARDIZE SAFETY, ETHICS, OR MORALS TO DO SO. WE PLACE EMPHASIS ON THE BIG PICTURE, SKILL PROGRESSIONS, AND THE BEST INTEREST OF EACH ATHLETE’S FUTURE, RATHER THAN FOCUSING ON A SHORT-TERM WIN. OUR KIDS ARE HAPPY, CONFIDENT LEADERS WHO ARE BEING PREPARED FOR BOTH THE CHEERLEADING STAGE AND THE LARGER ARENA OF LIFE.

WE ARE A GYM THAT ATHLETES FEEL IS A SECOND HOME, SURROUNDED BY TEAMMATES AND COACHES WHO THEY CAN CALL FAMILY. EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYONE, AND I AM VERY ACCESSIBLE AS AN OWNER. MY STAFF AND I FOCUS ON TEACHING WORK ETHIC, SPORTSMANSHIP, TEAMWORK, DEDICATION, PERSEVERANCE, AND MOST OF ALL PASSION FOR THIS AMAZING SPORT WHICH WE’VE ALL GROWN UP IN AND LOVE!
