Owner & Program Director Jen Posten

Owner, Tecumseh Gymnastics Academy 2008-Present

THS Head Varsity Coach 2002-Present

My coaching philosophy is guided by the belief that children can learn the discipline of gymnastics in a fun, safe, and protective environment. The idea that success is different for every individual and it is my mission to guide each child to their own personal level of success and that athletes will achieve their full gymnastics potential with individualized development.

It is my belief that the sport of Gymnastics is a teaching tool for young gymnasts to learn the value of hard work, dedication, personal discipline, competition, teamwork, and character. We learn through experience. This provides the opportunity to learn through sport the qualities that carry over into real life. It gives them the chance to build bonds and form lifelong relationships that come from being a part of something bigger. It is my hope that I have helped prepare them to travel on to bigger and better things when they leave the gym.

As a coach it is my job to be a leader; both in the gym and out, but also to guide my athletes to be strong leaders themselves by involving them in their training plans, skill goals, and team bonding. I strive to find balance between empowering athletes with ownership over their goals and plans, while maintaining structure and discipline to ensure productivity in their gymnastics career.

Meet the Coaches...
Miss Brooke Number of years at TGA : 8 years
  I was a gymnast myself growing up. I started gymnastics young and continued with the sport all throughout High School. I was a gymnast on the Tecumseh High School Varsity Team. My love for the sport continues, and is why I still continue to coach! I started my coaching career as a preschool coach and have experienced coaching every level in between. I am now currently a Beginner 1, Intermediate (Rec3) and TGA Team Coach. My favorite events to coach are the balance beam and the floor. This year will be my first year as an Assistant High School Coach! I will be coaching along side Jen with the Tecumseh, Manchester, and Columbia Central Co-op team. I couldn’t be more excited! Outside of the gym, I am a full time Nursing Student and I work part-time at St. Joe’s Ann Arbor as a Patient Care Tech on their Mother-Baby Unit! My goal is to continue as a Labor and Delivery Nurse when I graduate next Winter! A fun fact about me is that I have a twin brother!
Miss Jenna Number of years at TGA : 9 years
  Miss Jenna has been coaching at TGA for 9 years. My interest in gymnastics began at a young age and continued to grow through middle school. "I however switched to a different sport in high school until I realized that I would rather be back on the gymnastics team. I competed on The Varsity Team during my junior and senior year!" Jenna likes to spend her summers at Devils Lake with her family on their boat. "I coach Hotshot Parent & Tot through Beginner classes. I am also a second grade teacher at Sutton Early Learning Center!"

  I was a gymnast for about 10 years. My favorite events were floor and beam. I currently teach REC 1 & 2 classes and enjoy being able to teach young kids about a sport I love. I’m also a CT tech at St. Joe’s and love learning about anatomy. My favorite things to do outside of work are traveling to different national parks, spending time with my 2 dogs and 2 cats, and doing CrossFit.
