Our Founders, Mentors, and Community Builders consistently bring top-notch content to the gymnastics community by sharing fundamental concepts, drills, techniques, training tips, and even philosophical viewpoints – everything needed to excel in our beloved sport. Our educational camps aim to be among the most well-prepared and thorough events available in the industry. Whether it’s in our online content, or our in-person events, one of our main drives is to ensure there is something to be learned – something participants will take with them as they continue to improve themselves as coaches, athletes, and human beings.
ATHLETE FIRST FOCUS
“As young coaches we think we are coaching a sport. As older coaches we realize we are coaching people.” Our focus is to share educational material with both inexperienced and experienced coaches alike; we are in the business of working with and coaching people. With a focus on people, on those who have chosen to dedicate themselves to this sport, we bring that same dedication in the work we do, continually pushing this concept, and each other, forward. Spreading relevant philosophies in coaching, specific skill progressions and drills, and creating an amazing community for coaches will ultimately help athletes around the country and hopefully world. We will continue to preach philosophies that support athletes and their development with safety and health as the primary focus.
PEOPLE OVER PROFIT
Best Darn Gymnastics has earned a reputation as an organization that hosts events of the highest quality. Working to ensure our events are of the highest quality and that attendees get the most value possible is, and always will be, a top priority. The reputation we have earned from those efforts is something for which we are immeasurably proud; something we will never take for granted. Financial gain will never be placed above the value that we work to bring to this community.
Just like the athletes we work with, Best Darn Gymnastics is always in motion. Never satisfied with the status quo, we continually work to move this sport, how it’s coached and how our athletes train, forward. Our founders have proven this commitment to curiosity, this dedication to innovation, time and time again. They have developed new products, competition formats, and educational approaches to technique as well as health and well-being. As we work to improve both coaches and athletes alike, there isn’t a moment when we aren’t looking inwards, staying curious, and working to improve this sport.
This community is comprised of people – people involved in so many ways – we are an organization that consistently finds ways to bring these people together in positive ways. People come together through our high-quality competitions, camps, and clinics for both gymnasts and coaches. They come together online through our variety of free content, encouraging education and collaboration. And they come together in supporting their friends and loved ones who have chosen to dedicate themselves to this sport.
The drive behind our work is to positively contribute to this sport we love, not to get rich. That’s why our services and education programs are offered at various price points – starting at $0.00. We want anyone with a desire to learn and improve themselves to have that opportunity.
