NORTH STARS GYMNASTICS ACADEMY‘S MISSION STATEMENT
North Stars Gymnastics Academy was founded on the belief that children must learn to set goals not limits, and in doing so, develop an appreciation of the journey as well as the destination. We pride our selves on quality instruction and strive to maximize each athlete’s potential in the sport regardless of ability.
We at North Stars believe in developing the person, not just the athlete. Self-confidence, independence and self-motivation are just a few of the life skills our students acquire on their way to becoming successful and productive adults.
We feel our alumni serve as positive role models to others and hope they develop a desire to share their knowledge and love of the sport with generations to come.
”You are never given the dream without the power to make it come true…..you may have to work for it, however.” Bach
For more than 30 years North Stars has been placing children to the National and International levels.
We have had medalists in USA Championships, Goodwill Games, Pan American Games, Pacific Alliance Championships as wells as competitions in France, S. Korea, England, Russia, Bulgaria, Columbia, US Olympic Trials…
Also, more than 50 North Stars have received college scholarships.
Tony Gehman has been named Jr. Olympic National Coach of the Year 2008 and International Coach of the Year 1991.
We are all very happy and proud to be a part of your team.
