Rita Brown, owner of several Brown's Gymnastics training centers around the US, had the vision to understand that Gymnastics as a sport needed to support its coaches with better training.
GYMCERT was formed in order to provide standardized web-based training courses at all levels of gymnastics. Each course, upon successful completion, enables a person to become certified as a Gymnastics Coach.
From this, some of our objectives are:
- To ensure coaches are certified in Safety and proper gymnastics coaching techniques.
- To provide a safer environment for our athletes.
- To provide a higher quality of instruction for our athletes.
- To reduce the insurance industry's risk, thus lowering liability insurance rates for gyms that only use certified coaches.
- To provide accountability of gymnastic coaches and gyms.
- To provide a cost savings to coaches and gym club owners.
