 “I love coaching at Byers because I love the sport, the kids, and the atmosphere
in the gym. My coworkers make the job enjoyable, but the kids make the job
exciting. I love working with all ages, from the precious 3 year olds, to the
teenagers of team. They are all amazing.”



Team 4 - 5

“I Like coaching at Byers because it is family. I started at Byers as gymnast at 14 years old and started coaching at 15. It has been fun and extremely awarding to coach something I have always done. As I’ve gotten older I realized we aren’t just teaching forward rolls, handstands, and cartwheels; We are teaching life lessons. We, as coaches, can teach self motivation, work ethic, determination to not give up, and how to be gracious in success and failure.”
