Meet Our Staff …..

All of the SRGC instructors have personal experience in gymnastics, tumbling, cheer leading or dance. 80% of our staff have been competitive gymnasts/cheerleaders and all have gone through the SRGC training program and testing. Instructors and Coaches must all go through ongoing training, done quarterly, where class management, safety, spotting, and gymnastic techniques are all taught, drilled and tested. On top of the in house training, all of the Team Coaches and Supervisors attend the USAG Region 1 training and certification seminars annually, which they then present to the rest of our staff.
