carter phillips - Coach

I started gymnastics, power tumbling specifically,  when I was 15. I started as sub-advanced (competed USTA) and am now an elite tumbler. I am currently competing USTA and have tried out for the USTA national team; I have also competed with a few world champions/ attendees. I have been through countless camps and learned many tumbling drills. I have experience in spotting tumbling, trampoline, double mini, synchronized trampoline, and artistic gymnastics.

I am devoted to helping kids get better and love to watch them grow and thrive to be the best gymnast they can be.
