OUR LEADERSHIP

      For over 20 years, Becki Weathers, known to all as Ms. Becki, has owned, managed, and taught at the Palaestra. It formed as a social community; a place for her daughters to not only train and learn gymnastics but to grow and learn life lessons as well.

      The class, "Becki's Babies" refers to our youngest gymnasts, from crawling to three years old. This group has a special place in Ms. Becki's heart, as it's the first time she can set the ever-important goals to have fun, be safe, learn a new skill, and make a new friend. She will most likely continue teaching this group well into her 80's.

      However, with 50 years of competitive gymnastics experience, Ms. Becki loves the thrill of a winning team and life lessons learned along the way. She has had the opportunity to coach multiple Junior Olympic National Champions in Trampoline and Tumbling as well as major competitors in Elite Level International Trampoline and Tumbling Championships.

OUR FACILITY AND ENVIRONMENT

 

Palaestra

pa·laes·tra

noun - a place in ancient Greece devoted to the training of athletes.

The Palaestra stimulates interest and introduces challenges to develop a strong foundation for physical and mental growth. Our creative space makes learning individualized and fun! We believe skill progression should be controlled by the child's own development, and utilize games, music, and exploration to continuously peak your child's imagination.
