Back-to-school time is the perfect time to get back into the gym! We have great opportunities for gymnasts of all ages and abilities to start growing their Roots! If you are looking for preschool, recreational, tumbling, or just some Friday Fun and Games, Roots Gymnastics has a spot for you.
When I graduated from Bucknell University in 1993, I never envisioned that I would become a lifelong gymnastics coach. I finished school with an English degree and was certified to teach secondary English. I became a substitute teacher and worked additional time for my mother, who owns a successful gymnastics business, to make some extra money. Coaching was considered second fiddle and I knew that at some point I would be hired to do my “real job.”
As an educator, what I quickly realized was that coaching gymnastics was a “real job.” I was able to reach students at a much deeper level than I ever could in a classroom. So here I am 29 years later opening my own gymnastics school, and these are some things that I have learned along my journey to this point.
I like gymnastics. My involvement with the sport has provided me with a livelihood for many years and it is a really cool sport. But what I really am passionate about is not gymnastics. What I am passionate about is the connections that can be made and the lessons that can be learned through participation in this amazing sport.
If a gymnast is going to progress and be successful in gymnastics, they have to be prepared to fail over and over again. Gymnasts need a really strong foundation built upon strength, flexibility, balance, and courage. They must put themselves at risk on a daily basis. They have to trust their coaches, their parents and their teammates.They have to dig deep into their own self and decide what it is that they really want to achieve. A gymnast must be willing to be open with others and share their dreams, their joys, and their frustrations. Finally, a gymnast needs an extensive network of support to help them succeed.
Some day in the future, these young athletes will no longer be gymnasts – but the values that they will learn and the deep understanding they come to have about themselves and embrace – will be with them for the rest of their lives.
I am excited to watch Roots Gymnastics become a place where gymnasts can embark on this journey of growth and self-discovery. I am excited to have these young athletes build their foundation and grow their network of support at Roots!
