This is her first year doing Girls Level 1 Team, and she loves it. Dabrana started in gymnastics here at ASI as a student herself. She attended the Cedar Hill and Plano West location. She also did cheerleading from 6th-12th grade. She currently attends TCC and is studying to be a sign language interpreter. She began her career of working with children by babysitting kids from her church.
Coaching at ASI has been a thrill for her, and one of the greatest thing about working here is that she loves to come to work.

Coach Haley has been with ASI Firewheel for about two years. She currently coaches Girls Bronze and Kidz Gym Level 1 and 2. Coach Haley also works with our Gymnastics After School program. She believes gymnastics is a great way for kids to learn how to be social. “It is hard for some kids to make friends, but in a small setting it is nice to see kids click.”
What Haley loves most about coaching at ASI is being able to build relationships with her students. “When you have a bond with your kids, it’s comforting for them to know they can trust you.”Coach Haley is currently attending Richland College and is currently taking tumbling classes to prepare her for university cheer tryouts. She has always strived to stay active, while in high school she participated in quite a few sports.
Thank you, Coach Haley, for always bringing your A-game! Firewheel is lucky to have you.
Coach Kyle is one of our most popular and in-demand coaches here in Keller. ASI was his first job eight years ago, and we are so glad he has stayed with it because he has excelled and all of his students love him as their coach. Kyle graduated from Northwest High School and attended Tarrant County Community College. Kyle’s athletic background consisted of cross country, track, soccer, and diving when he was younger, and in high school, he competed in gymnastics and diving. He currently stays fit while playing with his adorable dog, Maple.
Coach Rachel in Mesquite has a strong background working with children. She has worked Vacation Bible Schools, led the children’s music at her church, helped coach soccer camps, and has worked in the nursery at church for almost five years now. Working with kids for most of her life has undoubtedly led to her being an amazing coach that all the kids truly adore. For Rachel, getting to coach kids at ASI is more than just a job, “I love interacting with the kids. Although this may be a cliche answer, it is the truth. It’s a great feeling when your child knows your name or tells you something about their day. The little things like this mean so much to me because I know I have made a small impact in their lives.”
“Gymnastics, in my opinion is great for kids because it is an excellent way to allow kids to be active, grow and have fun. It teaches them to believe in themselves and never to give up. They can have a good time while learning skills and becoming disciplined.” When Rachel was a child, she even attended ASI at the age of eight. She also cheered her Junior year of High School. Her favorite ways to stay active are through cheer, running, and working out.
Rachel’s sweet and bubbly personality has made such a positive impact in the Mesquite Gym. While her positive attitude, dependability, and strong love for kids have made her a wonderful coach and co-worker. We are so happy to have you as a part of our team Rachel!

Outside of gymnastics and school, Augusta enjoys Poetry, and she was the Captain of the Speech and Debate Team at her high school.
Augusta loves coaching here at ASI because it is a fun environment and she can be with the kids. She has a passion for kids; she loves the curiosity and the eagerness to know everything. “Everybody works as a team here and always lift each other up,” she says. “It is very rewarding, and I’m making memories and putting smiles on the kid’s faces.”
We are very lucky to have such an athlete and a fantastic team player, not only as a coach at ASI but as part of our ASI family.
