Competitive and Shooting Stars Team Coach

I have been coaching gymnastics for 13 years! I have been a competitive gymnastics coach for 10 of those years. I started cheerleading in Colorado as a child and enjoyed the jumps, tumbling and dancing. I was very shy and my family moved to California around 11 yrs, this is where I started gymnastics classes at my local gym. I attended there and eventually started coaching classes once a week when I was old enough. I LOVE kids and had a blast working with them in this new setting. I coached more and more classes and said yes at any chance I could to sub classes or take extra hours. One night the gym asked me to sub a team group. I immediately fell in love. I did everything they told me to do, I also bought books, watched video, went to training clinics and learned a TON. Eventually my mentor coach left on to a new opportunity and I was left with a team of my own. I learned and experimented and loved what I was doing but also wanted to learn to work with higher levels. After many years I began feeling I had gained success, but felt I wanted more. It was then I met Coach Debra and began my journey at NGTC! I love coaching competitive gymnastics because it is always a challenge and there is always a pursuit towards a new goal.

Coach Deja (Preschool and Team)

Deja has 16 years of coaching experience from preschool-level 9 gymnastics. She competed as a level 8 gymnast and began coaching at age 17. Deja earned her Bachelors degree in Kinesiology from San Jose State University.
When Deja isn't at NGTC you can often find her with her family at the baseball and soccer fields watching her own children compete in the sports they love!
What she loves most about coaching at NGTC: ``I love the smiles, the hugs and the laughter. We truly are a family and it brings me so much happiness to watch the kids not only grow into great gymnasts, but grow into healthy and happy people. The look on a child's face when they make a new skill for the first time is priceless, and that's what brings me the most joy as a coach.``

Coach

I have been a coach at NGTC since 2005 and love gymnastics, tumbling and cheerleading. I started taking gymnastics at NGTC when I was two years old and continued taking classes until I started coaching. I am also the coach the St Mary's cheerleading that practices at NGTC. I love coaching because I enjoy seeing children learn and accomplish new skills. Fun fact, I have been a competitive cheerleader since I was 8 years old and I am still currently competing on an all-star cheerleading team. I am also currently in school to become a pediatric nurse and have a bachelors degree from UCLA in history.
