I signed my daughter up for gymnastics so that she could find her confidence. Since working with Miss Jessica Ryan, she has found her confidence, and some. Miss Jess goes above and beyond for her gymnasts. She is fair and tough and efficient. She brings out the best in each and every one of her students. My daughter shares a bond with Miss Jess that I have never seen her share with anyone else ever before. A good coach teaches more than just the skills to compete, a good coach teaches her gymnasts how to conquer their own selves and be the best versions of who they are. Miss Jess has achieved that, and it reflects not only in my daughters gymnastics abilities, but also in her daily life. Miss Jess helps her students find themselves. She is the epitome of what a coach should strive to be.
