The key to success is preparing athletes for the next level by teaching proper lead-ups and progressions.

Olympic, World and National Team Coach, Kathryn Geddert, has been training national caliber gymnasts for more than 30 years. They know what it takes to train gymnasts to advance their skills from good to great, and to achieve winning scores. Simply stated,

Our philosophy places emphasis on “what it takes to achieve SUCCESS in this very demanding sport.”

We focus on developing the core skills necessary to allow your gymnast to execute the next level of skills, with a goal of “near-perfection.” Proper lead-ups, progressions, strength and flexibility training, along with CHAMPIONSHIP ATTITUDES are the lessons taught at Twistars Camp. After all, a new skill is most valuable if it is executed with precision, receiving minimal (or no) deductions, and more importantly, receiving a big score when the judges are watching! The training techniques your gymnast will learn at Twistars Camp will carry over into their training back at your home gym and can be implemented all season long for improved results.

Yes, Twistars camp is for athletes who are serious about actually getting better at gymnastics. Now, to get some serious training done you’ve got to keep it fun. Witness first hand as one of our camp clinicians takes to the stage as Bob Barker.  Every Twistars camper will be on the edge of their seats (or, their spot on the spring floor) as we announce “You’re the next contestant on the Price is Right at Twistars!”

Twistars Camp is popular because we love to play games, give away prizes and use unique exciting activities to make serious training fun and enjoyable!  We consider fun a requirement of an effective training program!
