Welcome to Gem City Gymnastics and Cheerleading.

In July of 1990, when we opened Gem City Gymnastics and Cheerleading, our goal was to develop a quality gymnastics program that would give each child the opportunity to develop his or her fullest potential in a positive learning environment. We wanted all of our students to feel good about themselves and what they can do. We realize that everyone will not be an Olympic gymnast, but everyone can enjoy the sport of gymnastics.

We at Gem City Gymnastics train and require our coaches to both develop and practice the following qualities: safety awareness, enthusiasm, positive attitude, technical knowledge, high energy level, creativity, a sense of humor, and the ability to communicate well with parents as well as children.

Many of our coaches have had training in Child Development. We have coaches with a B.S. degree in Education, further enabling them to work well with children. We have coaches who have passed the Safety Certification Exam given by USA Gymnastics. Our coaches are continually attending seminars and clinics to further enhance their knowledge and skills, including weekly seminars over the summer months. Gem City was one of the first gyms in the state to have USA P.D.P (Professional Development Program) accredited coaches.

We are excited about your family becoming a part of our family. Feel free to contact us at any time. We are proud of our program, coaches, and our gym. We hope your experiences with us will be just as positive.

Sincerely,

 

Larry and Diane McCoppin
