Amazing gym. Their competitive team has top notch, personalized coaching focused on the need of your gymnast not following “their” program. My daughter improved an unprecedented amount with this type... of coaching and support. Started by a wonderful couple with many years coaching experience bringing broad knowledge from across the Nation and abroad.read more

Our daughter has been committed to gymnastics for four years. She switched to Inspire four months ago and in those four months her strength, form and technique have dramatically improved. The... coaches/owners of Inspire are also very ethical, flexible and easy to communicate with. They push the gymnasts to their full potential, but in a way that the gymnasts trust and love practicing with them.read more

Coach Kim and Coach Georgio are incredible coaches and wonderful role models. The progress my daughter made under their coaching was amazing. Between their knowledge of gymnastics and their ability... to build confidence in gymnasts, they helped my daughter overcome mental blocks that were stalling her progress. Everything is intentional and targeted from the conditioning to the drills to the personalized feedback. They encourage the girls to work hard, never give up, and always do their best. They truly care about their gymnasts. On top of all of this, they have built a beautiful facility and have a welcoming environment for all parents.read more

Georgio and his wife Kim are top-notch coaches! The gym is beautiful and so very clean! They are very welcoming of parents and actually encourage parents to watch. They have almost completed a... very nice view deck where all areas of the gym can be seen by parents or spectators anytime. I have spent several hours watching since my daughter started and I have seen happy kids, laughing with their teammates and coaches and quickly gaining some very impressive skills. Spending 2.5 hours in the car everyday to drive my daughter to gymnastics is not something I really enjoy doing, but every day she comes home and says “I can’t wait to go to gym again tomorrow!”, so that makes it all worth it. I would encourage anyone to give them a try. You will not be disappointed!read more

TOPS PROGRAM

TOPs, or the Talent Opportunity Program, was created 22 years ago to identify young talented gymnasts.

And from the USA Gymnastics Women’s Program Rules and Policies:

“The Talent Opportunity Program (TOPs) is an identification system that is implemented by the Developmental Team Coordinator under the direction of the International Elite Committee. Its purpose is to assist the coach with early identification of potentially talented athletes and to nurture and assist in the development of these athletes and their coaches and to provide competitive opportunities.”

So as you can see from the quotes above, TOPs is a program USA Gymnastics uses to find gymnasts with a “special” talent for gymnastics.  The goal is to have a strong national gymnastics team; I think the fact that it is under the direction of the International Elite Committee illustrates this point.

Since the goal of TOPs is to identify gymnasts with a “special” talent that if coached right, can become a very high-level gymnast, the program is focused mainly on developing the most up to date gymnastics technic and elements at a very young age. TOPs gymnasts also learn some specific gymnastics skills that are building blocks to other high-level skills. They learn these skills at a faster pace than is typical in the JO Program (gymnastics levels 1-10).

From the USA Gymnastics Website, "TOPs (Talent Opportunity Program) is a talent search and educational program for female gymnasts ages 7-10 and their coaches."
