Our Staff

Black Diamond instructors are professionally trained and knowledgeable about gymnastics, education, sports, and safety:

  • Staff members participate in professional development every month.
  • Staff is trained with the most current techniques in safety, skill development and progressions.
  • Most of our staff is comprised of college students and college graduates. Though we occasionally employ high school students, our clients will discover that they are exceptional students, clear communicators, and responsible team players.

We are passionate about what we do and are specialists in “Fun With a Purpose!”
