Daniel has been involved in gymnastics most his life. As an athlete he was a two-time member of Junior National Development Team, qualifying to twice train at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO.
His coaching career began on accident in 1996. As a young coach he was tasked with the duties of coaching pre-school, recreational, birthday parties, open gym, field trips, pre-team, team, and spotter for optional levels. Since that time, he has maintained his belief in the importance of coaching all levels. That belief has been driven by the importance of perfect basics and body shaping, flawless form, and extensive general and event specific conditioning. Building blocks that need to be established long before the athlete begins training optional level gymnastics.
Daniel’s resume speaks for itself. He has been instrumental in the development of teams that have accumulated dozens of State Championship titles, and competed against the best in the country at all levels; produced countless individual State, Regional, and National Champions; developed numerous athletes that have received Division 1 scholarships; presented at State, Regional, and National level conferences; and has been the honored recipient of literally thousands of hugs an high fives.
Daniel spends his time now in a consultation role, of sorts. He travels to gyms working with the athletes and the coaches, in an attempt to help each achieve and be their best.
