Our Girls Competitive Program has girls from 3 all the way up to 18, and from developmental through level 10. The goal of the program is to teach the athletes discipline while having fun in an engaging and learning environment. Our gymnasts practice anywhere from 2-24 hours per week.
Gymnastics is the perfect foundational sport. There is no sport that teaches basic fundamental athletic skills better than gymnastics, especially for young kids who lack the motor and cognitive skills for team ball sports. In gymnastics class, your son will learn to run, jump, and balance, to develop his coordination and body awareness and to become stronger and more flexible. These basic athletics skills are then transferable to any sport she chooses to play when she gets older. Or, if she opts out of sports all together, she will have a foundation for fitness.
Our purpose at Sterling Gymnastics Academy is to assist each student in maximizing his or her development across a broad range of facets. We invest in educating the whole child. While maintaining a high level of performance is an important goal, it needs to be achieved in tandem with character development. Promoting the development of skills related to leadership, goal setting, time management, and emotional maturation is paramount to our success.
No student has exactly parallel goals when compared to another student. Our program helps children discover and choose what exactly they want out of gymnastics, and we help to provide it. Whether it is becoming an elite level competitive gymnast, making strong and lasting connections with other students, or pursuing physical perfection, we want all students to be actively involved in shaping their direction. We believe it should be the children’s needs and goals we help nurture, and strive to educate the adults surrounding the children to let that happen. Students should know it was their choices that brought them success. In the end, for however long an athlete stays with us, we desire only that he or she leaves with a feeling of accomplishment and success.
Gymnastics has been apart of my life since I was 3 years old. I started in classes and worked my way up to Level 9. I have spent the last 15 years of my life coaching gymnastics off and on. I look forward to meeting you and your children in the near future. Favorite Quote: "When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long."
I loved Gymnastics as a child and teen. It helped shaped the person I am today. I was a gymnast for 10 years (8 to 18 years old) and from there became a coach and have been coaching for 10 years now. I have been with SGA since our grand opening of our Sterling Heights location in 2015. SGA is my home away from home and I am so excited to meet and coach our current and new students.
I was a gymnast for 12 years, 6 of those 12 was competitive gymnastics! I continued doing some skill work while in college and I have been coaching for 8 1/2 years. I love to read, travel, and eat!! My favorite sport besides gymnastics is hockey! I look forward to meeting you and your child!
I was a gymnast for 10 years before I became a coach. I have been coaching at SGA for 5 years. I have a bachelor's degree in Health Sciences and am a certified health and fitness coach. I love to inspire children to exercise and live a healthy lifestyle. I look forward to teaching your child!
I have 22 years of experience as a gymnast. I started at 3 years old & quickly moved up from there to power tumbling for 2 years. From there I joined the boys program at ALL World Gymnastics. I competed for 11 years up to level 10 at 4 separate Junior Olympic National Championships. After graduating High School I competed for another 2 years on Springfield College's NCAA Men's Gymnastics Team. After that I began coaching gymnastics and have been coaching for 8 years.
I was a competitive gymnast for 8 years and I have been coaching gymnastics for 7 years. I recently graduated from Oakland University in December 2019 with my Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) and I am currently a full-time RN (nurse) on a cardiac unit. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family, being outdoors, and boating.
