  Rec Instructor    Scott Lewis  "I started coaching gymnastics late in life because of my continuing education. I am currently a student of Kinesiology and through that I found myself doing something I never imagined I would do. Coaching has really changed my perspective on teaching, coaching, and learning for the better. I can't help but extol the virtues of gymnastics to friends and family.  Outside coaching I enjoy dancing, both watching and doing, learning knowledge, and spending too much time on the internet."
