Air Sports prepares for the World Cup in Loule, Portugal

Noah qualified onto the USAG Senior National Trampoline Team and will be performing for the first time at this highest level in Loule, Portugal - World Cup Competition.  This will be Noah's second international competition, he attended this same meet two years ago as part of the USAG ODP (Olympic Development Program) when he was just 14 years old.  I have attached a small video of the planned routine for the meet - take a look.  Noah will be performing a 14.6 dd set with plans of adding an additional triffus (triple flip w/ half turn out) later in the season - that will put him into the 15+ for dd (degree of difficulty).
We are all so proud of Noah and his accomplishments!  He is a Great leader, hard worker, focused, and determined to change the future of Trampoline for Team USA.
Good Luck to Noah and ALL the Team USA Athletes!
Go Team Air Sports...

Air Sports Trampoline and Tumbling Website Updated

Air Sports Trampoline and Tumbling: "Air Sports is a premier trampoline and tumbling program comprised of athletes competing on all levels in the sports' four events: trampoline, synchronized trampoline, double-mini trampoline, and power tumbling. Trampoline is in the Olympic Games every four years; trampoline & synchro tramp, double mini, & power tumbling are all performed at World Championships every non-Olympic year.

The Team had great success in the past four seasons. In 2011-2012, a team of 25 brought home 20 national medals, including 5 gold, 8 silvers, and 7 bronze. Fourteen athletes brought home a medal (or two), and almost all of the team's athletes landed in the top 10 nationally on at least one event, and eight of the athletes were in the top 10 on all of their events."

This season Air Sports also qualified Katie onto the USAG National JumpStart Team & Noah onto the USAG Senior & Junior National Teams.  Noah is currently Senior on Trampoline & Junior on Double mini.  Noah's next big challenge will be traveling to Loule Portugal to compete in the World Cup meet as his second international competition as a Senior Elite Athlete...

A few words that MUST be said...

I am sitting at my computer at 6am (ugh) just one day after the 2012 National Championships came to an end.  Hoping for a few extra hours of sleep...I found my mind racing all night thinking of the events, moments, performances, athletes, coaches, and emotions that filled the past 9 days.  Still very much numb for ALL of it – I am thrilled by the success and victories that we ALL found.  I must THANK Coach Sharon & Phil for their support, love, and endless passion in the development of youth athletes.  ALL the amazing Air Sports athletes that gave it their all and HIT when it counted most; all the supporting parents & families that sacrifice SO much in the support of their loved ones, and most of all for my loving wife & family that put their own personal lives on hold to support me & this amazing event.  I couldn’t do it without ALL of you working together and holding me up when I at times am overwhelmed by it all…From the bottom of my heart know that I am screaming this the loudest – I LOVE you all!!!

Katie & Harrison competing in the ODP Competition

What a Great experience for both Katie & Harrison! They both stepped up and competed in the very competitive and difficult event of ODP (Olympic Development Program) at the Elite Challenge and both did amazing! Both overcame personal challenges and both performed at their personal BEST! Results will be posted on the USAG site sometimes this week. I can tell you that both athletes did finish in the upper end of the competition and where excited to be competing with some of the BEST athletes in their age group in the entire USA!
GREAT JOB TO BOTH OF YOU!
It was exciting for Air Sports to be competing in this program again - last time around Noah qualified onto the National Team and made the trip to Portugal through this program...
Go Team Air Sports...

Here we grow again...

Here are a few of our "newest" Air Sports Team members
from our West Side Location. I am SO excited that several of our newest athletes are training hard to test the waters of JumpStart this fall and several of the Oasis location athletes will be competing this next season with Team Air Sports Leos on...Yea!!!
I totally LOVE the two training facilities option for our amazing hard working athletes. Oasis offers us the needed equipment and space for additional focus on JumpStart. Am. Elite offers us the multiple trampoline setup and two tramps training into a pit. As well as the ONLY Euro 4x4 Trampoline setup in the entire State of AZ.
Air Sports is truly Arizona's Premier Trampoline & Tumbling USAG program...
GO TEAM AIR SPORTS!!!

Elite Challenge here we come...

I am SO very excited about this up coming weekend competing in the Elite Challenge in Tulsa Okla. Noah, Danica, Katie, & Harrison are ready, excited, prepared, and thrilled to be on the biggest stage in the T&T Competitive World. Noah is chasing down a Elite Challenge Title, Jr. Elite Points, and "showing off" his new record breaking DD. (Noah will also be competing Synchro Trampoline w/ Steven from Aspire...I CAN'T WAIT!!!)
Danica, who is returning after just winning Gold at the Winter Classic is back defending her Title, increasing DD on both events, and doing all of that while keeping one eye on the Jr. Elite Women out there:). Katie & Harrison are both stepping out into the difficult program of ODP (Olympic Development Program), as well as competing Level 9. Like Danica, Katie took Gold at the Winter Classic so she is confident, excited, prepared, and ready to battle for that Title again. Katie is also coming off a very motivational & inspiring JumpStart Training Camp that I believe helped her move her T&T to the next level. Harrison is also much more prepared and ready for this event as a new Level 9 athlete. He gained needed confidence from the Winter Classic Meet by taking two Silver Medals and he is looking forward to seeing who will be his competition...

These athletes are amazing at what they do and together they will carry each other very far!
Good Luck to everyone this weekend!
Good Team Air Sports!!!

This is going to be FUN...remember ALL four of these athletes are National Champions...they know how to WIN when it counts...;)

Noah Orr competes at the Elite Levels!



I am posting this picture of Noah and I from his trip to Portugal competing in the Loule' World Cup. It was there in a far away country that changed the path that Noah and I were on. It was there that Noah gained the incredible passion and was inspired to go farther and higher than any other boy his age and level. The experiences that he lived and the lessons he learned have catapulted him to new heights and taught him to think big and dream even bigger!
Noah is more prepared today with his routines and passes because of what he saw and what he witnessed during those many days watching and learning from the BEST in the world!
Also, as Noah's coach I learned SO much about him, this sport, trends to be looking for, techniques to be training, and overall the direction that we needed to be working in. I say this because this past weekend at the USAG Winter Classic Noah had a coming out that was unmatched anywhere by any Elite Athlete.
In the first Elite Qualifier of the 2012 season - Noah qualified directly into the USA Elite Nationals on both double mini & trampoline. He qualified in the top 5 with his compulsory routine, he qualified number one with his optional routine (by over a point), he performed the second highest DD (degree of difficulty) in the country, and finished the preliminary rounds in first place overall! Noah just performed with the BEST in the USA and he came out on TOP! His hard work, total dedication, and focused mind took him to the top of the charts!
The interesting note to all of this - that was all just on trampoline...
Noah also put on a show and had a coming out on double mini that was also almost unbelievable.
He performed some of the most difficult passes in the Elite Group(s), performed all with perfect
lines and great landings, and after the preliminary rounds he was qualified into finals on both events! That was also a first for him - FINALS on both events!
Then in finals he found some needed inner strength to perform a pass that was new for him and something that he hasn’t even done back in the gym...In typical Noah fashion - he nailed two more passes and with all four passes added up he jumped into the Bronze Medal position in just his first Elite Double Mini Finals ever! Noah was and is the Elite to beat right now, and with is new DD, perfect lines, and inner passion to be the "best", he is going to take himself to new and amazing heights!
We are all SO proud of you and what you just accomplished! Keep focused, working hard, thinking big and dreaming even bigger, and keep your goals and dreams centered and in your
mind at ALL times!
Here is another picture of Noah lined up just before he competed in the World Cup that I love
so much. It is a great shot of him and all the USA Boys before we jumped onto the bus to the arena. I am using these pictures because this is where I believe Noah truly leaned and gained the inner belief in himself. It was here that Noah started to actually believe in World & Olympic Dreams and it was here that Noah witnessed the Chinese National Team putting on a show that NO country could compete with! Because of ALL the above Noah now believes that he can someday return and compete with those World & Olympic Champions...
Noah you are "one in a million" and we are all blessed to have you in our presence
each and every day. Keep doing what you are doing and keep leading in such
amazing ways...
