ESA's Philosophy 

  • To build self- confidence through the sport of gymnastics.

  • To teach the sport in a safe environment.

  • To provide the physical and mental discipline needed for competition by using positive reinforcement and encouragement.

  • To provide an opportunity for the gymnasts to achieve their dreams. We will contribute our energy, knowledge, and experience to help your daughter achieve her goals. For some, it may be level 5, college, elite, or national team. Our goal is to develop all the potential within your daughter.

  • To use gymnastics as a tool to help gymnasts with life skills. There is more to gymnastics than flipping, kipping, and twisting. Developing skills such as perseverance, sense of accomplishment in one’s abilities, sportsmanship, goal-setting, and respect is part of our mission.

  • To have fun while accomplishing everything stated above.
