At ETC Gymnastics, we encourage youth athletic participation because of this myriad of developmental benefits. Growing children into happy, healthy, LIFE-READY adults is what we do; gymnastics is simply the main tool we use to help facilitate it.
Well, for one, it’s what we’re passionate about. We’ve been touting the endless benefits of gymnastics in Middle TN since opening in 2000 (read our story here).
Second, it’s what we’re best at. Our staff has more than 250 combined years of gymnastics experience; and prior to becoming coaches, many were high-level achievers in the sport themselves.
Finally, we believe that its ability to help deliver the most important outcomes we all have for our children is second to none. Sports of many kinds produce positive effects; and gymnastics participation simply takes those effects to another level.
In the last 16 years, our program has blossomed into a nationally recognized program for a number of reasons:
Our little dippers curriculum / program was an original invention (most gyms do “mommy-and-me” at that age, and they don’t teach gymnastics – they play)
We have a unique staff training, hiring, and education process, which allows us to attract some of the brightest coaches in the nation to come work with us
We have an enrollment that is in the top 3% of the gymnastics schools across the United States, in a city with a population that is nowhere NEAR the top 3% of the United States
And, of course, our women’s teams have won more awards and accolades across the country than we can even count.
