"I love seeing Jorden walk into our Tallmadge facility each week. He is so polite and respectful to his instructors and is well liked by the other students. He always comes in with a smile on his face and is enthusiastic about learning new skills. I Can't wait to see how far he goes with his tumbling skills." - Owner, Caryn Hale
Jorden started with us just two years ago in 2016 when his grandmother, Jackie talked him into attending our summer camps. After the first day at World Elite Kids camp, Jorden was hooked and immediately wanted to enroll in classes.
Being discouraged from a marginal program in another community it wasn't easy getting Jorden back into gymnastics and tumbling. "He was so discourgaged". Now Jorden is more confident than ever and appreciates the opportunity to practice at Open Gym and ask for help from other gymnasts and coaches when needed. Not only does Jorden love taking his own classes but he also enjoys watching the competitive cheer and gymnastic teams practice.
The progress that Jorden has made is significant and the relationships he has created with his instructors mean the world to him. He is currently enrolled in our Tucks and Aerials class at World Elite Kids, Tallmadge where he gets to learn from his favorite instructor, Josh.
"Jordan is a wonderful student to have in class. He always works hard, works towards perfection and just loves to tumble! I would love to see him in a all star uniform one day!!" - Coach Josh
Although he calls coach Josh his favorite, he also truly appreciates owner, Caryn Hale's love, kindness, prayers and support. "All the instructors and owners have showed a huge interest in Jorden's gymnastics progress and unique life story".
Outside of our building Jorden participates in multiple extra curricular activities. He was recently chosen to participate in his school's track team, he loves Minecraft, takes Hip Hop and tap at a local dance studio, and attends weekly Bible Study at his school. We can't wait to see what the future holds for Jorden inside our building and in school.
"Jorden started taking gymnastics classes at five years old. He loves the sport. Our only regret is that we did not find American Elite when we started! Our family feels blessed to have this program available for Jorden."
