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!!!
