Pat Henderson, Owner and Director, was named Master of Sport and in 2009 was inducted by USA Gymnastics into the Hall of Fame for Lifetime Achievement. Coach Henderson, an Olympic Judge and coach of an Olympic Alternate, uses time tested principles of biomechanics in teaching and coaching fundamental movement. She believes that “basics” are the key to success at all levels of athletics. Coach Henderson’s world class athletes have been competing and performing in the International and Olympic arenas for decades which gives testament to these principles
Our new P.A.T. (Precision Aerial Training) addresses the specific needs of spacial awareness and correct biomechanics of movement to make “it” happen. Many of our athletes cross over to, or come from, “extreme sports,” such as snow, wake, or skate boarding, snow or water skiing, ice or roller skating. Diving is not new to this crossover as it, as with the other sports, enhances its artistic, acrobatic and rhythmic qualities through flipping and twisting. These “skills,” “stunts,” and “tricks” sometimes lead to our athletes performing in Cirque du Soleil and the like.
We “Jump” to the needs of Beginners through Elite!
