"I love to see kids bouncing up and down outside the doors everyday waiting for classes to start. Not only do I get to share their excitement, form a bond with them, and provide them with a fun getaway for an hour, I get to see the kids grow every week; in their gymnastics skills and in their character."

Hayley Dalgetty

Recreational Instructor

 

Hayley has been involved in gymnastics for 8 years. She went to 5 different gyms in Idaho before moving to Cashmere and joining S.P.O.R.T. Gymnastics in 2016. Hayley loves S.P.O.R.T. because the coaches focus on every gymnast rather than picking and choosing gymnasts based on skill level. Gymnastics has taught her patience, determination, focus and dedication.

"I enjoy teaching because I get to see the kids grow and improve. I get the privilege to teach kids the sport that I love. I love the different personalities that kids have, they are not afraid to express themselves and it puts a smile on my face."
