BIG DREAMS START HERE!
Dreams Gymnastics Academy is family owned and operated since 2019. Owners James and Ashley pride themselves on offering high quality gymnastics instruction in a well-maintained facility for all ages and abilities. From babynastics, recreational, competitive and everything in between, this dynamic duo has more than 40 years of coaching experience!
Ashley's biggest passion is Gymnastics, and her biggest dream was to own a Gymnastics club. Opening Dreams Gymnastics Academy was her lifelong Goal, and she is so pleased to welcome you to her growing club! She has been involved in the sport for 25 years as an Athlete, Coach and Judge. Her coaching philosophy is to coach the person first and the athlete second. She has always strived for excellence at all levels of gymnastics but has a strong focus on finding a balance between success, great experiences, healthy practice and most importantly having fun! She is a long-term planner and aims for her athletes to have longevity in the sport. She is a Competition 4 trained coach in Women’s Artistic Gymnastics with a Coaching degree from Seneca College for Competitive Gymnastics Coaching.
In addition, Ashley is level 3 trained in Trampoline and level 2 certified in Men’s Artistic. She has coached athletes to Provincials, Eastern Championships, Western Championships, Elite Canada, and Nationals. Ashley's gymnasts have certainly earned a few medals along the way, but more importantly, have learned about hard work, dedication, perseverance, and leadership. Dreams Gymnastics Academy is an athlete-centered environment which focuses on inclusion, positivity, and progression in the sport of Gymnastics.
James began his journey with gymnastics in 1998 at his high school in Vernon BC. From then on, his love for the sport continued to grow. He took his first coaching position at the Spruce Aerials Gymnastics club in 2003 where he focused on recreational classes. He dove in headfirst and took any coaching courses available to him. As his knowledge grew, so did his passion for teaching more advanced badge classes, trampoline, tumbling and competitive groups.
Fast forward, James worked at two other Edmonton based clubs before landing at Dreams! During that time, he continued to expand his experience and added Parkour to his repertoire. James is a WAG C2 coach as well as C3 in trampoline, and foundations in Parkour. James' coaching philosophy is based on a strong foundation of trust between the coach and the athlete. Once the trust is established, he involves the athlete in the planning process from daily plans to long term future goals. He believes that the athletes' physical and mental wellbeing is far more important than short cuts or quick results.
