Hi! My name is Gerrad, and I feel that I am a fun, productive, sympathetic teddy bear of a coach. I am always 100% when it comes to coaching. I want to teach with passion, so when it comes to discipline and coordination, it is so awesome to see them when they do a skill and they perfect it at such a young age. Some of the reasons why I coach at ASI is I’ve always wanted to work with kids. Seeing how I am a big guy myself, I feel great pride when one of my kids perfects a skill and I see them progress in the program. I love my job and I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else.
Jaime has been coaching for ASI Firewheel for four months now, but has a long history with ASI Gymnastics. He has been a judge for our Boy Meets for the past six years and decided to apply for a coaching position after his brother, Tomas, told him how great it was working here. He said, “I thought it would be great to stay in contact with the sport and to help all the kids learn about the sport.” He describes his coaching style as energetic, consistent, and fun. We would have to agree with him!
Outside of ASI, Jaime attended the University of North Texas and has been an avid soccer player for the past 9 years. This isn’t his first time coaching, in fact he has coached boys soccer and both middle and high school gymnastics. His favorite event to coach is pommel horse. When asked what he loves most about coaching he said, “I love being around the sport and being able to teach kids new skills, because I seeing the smile on their faces when they learn something new or they perfect a skill they have been practicing on for quite some time.”
Currently he coaches Girls Bronze, Boys Bronze and Power Tumbling classes! His students and co-workers agree that he’s always positive and we enjoy having him in our gym.
“Technical, positive, and adaptable” are three words to describe Kiersten’s coaching style. She coaches everything from Tiny Tots and Kidz Gym to Girls and Boys Gymnastics, and those three words definitely define a coach that is needed to tackle all aspects of these programs. She loves coaching at ASI because she knows that coaching impacts a child’s life greatly. Not only does it help her stay positive and able to build a relationship with both the child and parent to provide a safe and fun environment for the kids, but she has learned so much about how every child is different and that they are all gifted and talented in their own ways. She aspires to be a part of the stories that the children she coaches tells down the line about their happy childhood memories!
She has been working in the sport for over 9 years and has noted that gymnastics is great for kids because “it works with so many different aspects the child needs in life. It is great for fine & large motor skills, social and behavioral skills. It also allows the students to become disciplined in a sport that focuses on body control and movement that helps in all other sports.” Keller is lucky to have a passionate coach such as Kiersten who strives to impact kids lives the way that she does each and every day.

Summer has been with ASI Rockwall for 2 years and we couldn’t be happier. She currently coaches Kidz Gym 1 & 2, Girls Gymnastics Bronze and also works Open Gym, Parents’ Night Out, Camp and Birthday Parties. Summer is always safe & consistent when coaching her classes. She loves the challenges she faces while coaching but most of all she love that she gets to share her passion for gymnastics with each and every child she coaches. Summer believes gymnastics is a great sport because, “it helps improve social interaction, overall strength and coordination & builds your self confidence”.
Summer’s love for gymnastics started when she was 8 years old. She was driving past ASI with her Mom one day and she said to her Mom, “I want to do gymnastics!” and she has loved ASI ever since! She was on the team at ASI Rockwall for 3 years and one of her current co-workers (Coach Jonny) was even her Power Tumbling coach. How cool is that!!!
Summer will graduate in June 2016 from Rockwall High School and plans to attend community college in the fall. She has a lot of experience with children, from helping out in the nursery at church to babysitting her nephew.
When I asked Summer to sum up coaching at ASI, she said “my job is fun, rewarding, diverse, exciting and challenging…..and I wouldn’t trade it for the world”! ASI Rockwall is lucky to have Summer!
Cassidy has been coaching at The Woodlands for a year! She coaches Girls and Kidz Gym classes. She is currently attending Sam Houston State University working on her education degree. Coach Cassidy has been in several organizations that mentor young children, so when she heard about a job at ASI she was interested right away!

She says, “I probably get more excited than they do!” She also loves the staff and says that they are like her family; that “no matter what I always feel taken care of and welcomed.” She says that gymnastics is so great for kids because it helps them learn about hard work, goals, and how these things lead to success. The Woodlands is lucky to have Coach Cassidy!
