OUR PHILOSOPHY

WHAT IS WARRIORS ALL ABOUT?

We aim to teach life lessons such as respect, determination and perseverance while building strength, flexibility and coordination in a positive fun environment.

In order to give your children the best possible experience, we first need to create a culture in our gym where kids learn to focus on what they can control, how to productively handle mistakes, challenge themselves, and compete with integrity and respect. This safe space will allow for your children to learn life lessons and develop resilience and a growth mindset throughout their gymnastics experience.

To help us in our commitment to a positive fun environment we have partnered with Positive Coaching Alliance.

HOW DOES PCA FIT INTO OUR MISSION?

PCA provides strategy, support, and education in order to help establish a positive, character-building experience for athletes. 

WHAT IS A SAFE SPACE?

A place where kids feel…

  • … they have the ability to learn, make mistakes, and improve without being harshly criticized, scared or embarrassed

  • … a sense of community and belonging, where they can have fun with their friends and learn

  • … proud of what themselves and their teammates are accomplishing

  • …challenged to push themselves, without being yelled at or demeaned

HOW DO WE CREATE A SAFE SPACE?

Leadership

Leadership will have consistently scheduled consultations with PCA to set and work towards attaining goals, gaining access to resources, and providing training to both coaches and parents.

Coaches

All coaches will be PCA Double-Goal Coach certified and will have access to continuous research-based training and resources.

Parents

Parents will be provided with resources and educational opportunities to learn additional tips and tools for best supporting their children throughout their experience. Parents can be positive cheerleaders for their children and focus on the many life lessons that gymnastics will provide their children.

Athletes

When adults are on the same page and model positive behaviors it will create a safe space for the athletes.  Athletes will also be taught teamwork skills and how to fill each other’s emotional tanks, which will help them contribute to the safe space.
