In Memory of Coach Marissa Lipsey

In Memory of Coach Marissa Lipsey

It is with heavy hearts that we inform you, Coach Marissa Lipsey has passed away.

Marissa Lipsey was born on September 10, 1991. She graduated from L.D. Bell High School in 2010 as a competitive gymnast. Coach Marissa’s love for the sport of gymnastics started as a child and developed into a coaching career at ASI Gymnastics. Her love for gymnastics will live through the hearts of over 2,600 gymnasts that she coached during her seven-year career at ASI Gymnastics.

Coach Marissa’s passion for creating beaded bonsai trees embodied the delicate nature of her soul. In her honor, there will be a tree planted at ASI Keller that will serve as a permanent memorial site.

We encourage friends to visit the temporary memorial site where you can write a card to Coach Marissa’s family. We encourage you to discuss this sad news with your child prior to visiting. The memorial site is at the ASI Keller gym and will be available during regular business hours from August 16, 2019 until August 23, 2019. Please keep Marissa’s family, loved ones, and friends in your thoughts during this time of grieving.

5 Must Learn Social Skills for Your Child

5 Must Learn Social Skills for Your Child

The ASI Gymnastics Preschool Program incorporates social skills in every class. Children learn these fundamental skills to help them develop and succeed in school, sports and friendships. What better way for your child to learn than in gymnastics class?

Interact Positively with Others: Children who learn how to positively interact with others are setting the stage for quality relationships with peers and adults for their future. Within each class at ASI, students will learn these skills during music circle and playtime while establishing friendships.

Follow Directions: Children who learn to follow directions will be able to take instructions and understand fully the skills or tasks they are doing. This will help them learn to take responsibility for their actions not only in gymnastics but in school as well. During class at ASI, your child will learn to listen to the coach’s instructions and perform the skills at each circuit.

Taking Turns: Children who learn the importance of taking turns will be able to play cooperatively with others. During class at ASI, children will alternate on the equipment, trampolines and at playtime.

Express Emotions Verbally: Children who learn the importance of expressing emotions verbally find it easier to process different emotions and be able to voice them. At ASI, your child is encouraged to talk through emotions they’re feeling during class and learn how to positively express themselves.

Independence: Children will learn how to be independent while getting hands-on experience with trial and failure. This process will help build up their self-esteem as they face new challenges independently. At ASI, your child will exhibit bravery in each class by working through new obstacles freely.
