Twisters Feature: The LoBue Family

We take pride in our great big, ever-growing Twisters family. So many of our Twisters coaches and staff members have children who take classes or attend camp at our gyms, and even family members who also work here. Our love for Twisters gets passed down through the generations. On that note, we'd like to introduce this month's Twisters blog feature. A triple-generation Twisters family... The LoBue Family! With Grandma, Mom and Dad working for the organization and a daughter in classes, Lindsay, Steven and Ellie LoBue are a true Twisters family. Lindsay has been working for Twisters and USA Competitions [...]

Remembering Coach Doug

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Coach Doug Sleeman. Coach Doug passed away June 4th while celebrating his 50th birthday in Costa Rica. According to his Facebook page, Doug was riding a motorcycle that was hit by a semi tractor trailer. We are devastated by this awful news. Doug coached at Twisters for almost two decades. Throughout his time here, he had a positive impact on tens of thousands of children and families and became a great friend to hundreds of staff members and parents. Doug had an incredible energy and enthusiasm in the [...]

Twisters Statement Re: USOC & USAG

Dear Twister Families, As you may have heard, the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) has recently taken steps to revoke USA Gymnastics' (USAG) recognition as the national governing body for the sport of gymnastics. The USOC believes that "the challenges facing the organization are simply more than it is capable of overcoming in its current form," and at Twisters we agree and believe a fresh start is necessary. You may be wondering how the USOC's actions to decertify USAG will impact our gymnasts and coaches. We received a message from the USOC and USAG stating that these actions will have [...]

A Gymnast’s Back-to-School Balancing Act

  The start of a new school year is a particularly difficult time for many gymnasts, especially as they get older. They are required to do the intense gymnastics training they did all summer long while balancing the additional demands and challenges of new teachers and a full schedule of academic classes. Their teachers emphasize how seriously they need to take their performance in each of their classes and how they will be expected to produce high quality work that will be incrementally more difficult than it was in their prior grade. Most gymnasts are perfectionistic and hardworking, so they [...]

Twister of the Month – April – Alexandra Greenwald

The recent shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland hit way too close to home for Twisters. Many of our students, including our Team girls, currently attend MSD and knew the victims. One of our Level 10 Team gymnasts, Alexandra Greenwald, lost one of her closest friends, Nicholas Dworet, in the shooting. Nick’s brother, Alex, was also shot and survived. Though facing heartbreak no high school senior should have to endure, Alexandra turned her grief into action and organized a meal train for Nick’s family to help support them in their darkest hour. In addition, she has dedicated [...]

Twisters Stands with Survivors

Dear Twister Members: Twister Gymnastics stands with the army of sister survivors who rightfully demand immediate change in the secretive, abusive, and unethical culture of USA Gymnastics that enabled the sexual abuse of 150+ athletes at the hands of Dr. Larry Nassar. For far too long USA Gymnastics, the governing body of our sport, their board of directors and the national staff have turned a blind eye to abuse and instilled a culture of fear in our country’s most talented athletes. The culture of USA Gymnastics must change, and this change requires a complete overhaul of the board. We too [...]
