Junior Olympic Team
Erin Grote is the Director of our Junior Olympic Competitive Team! She is a former Jymstar and Stevens High School gymnast. She has been positively impacting the girls on our competitive team since 2000! Under her direction, the Jymstars have won numerous state titles but more importantly, hundreds of young girls have learned the wonderful life skills that gymnastics teaches 🙂
Donny Otis is our Head Optional Team Coach, the TOPS director, and a co-owner of Just Jymnastics! He grew up in MN and started coaching gymnastics at Winona College. He continued to coach college gymnastics for 7 years and then moved into the JO world in Sioux Falls. We are thrilled to have his knowledge and enthusiasm for gymnastics!
Gwen Fuelling has been coaching recreational and team classes at Just since 2007. She coaches our pre-team, Level 3, 4, 5 & 6 teams. Gwen is great at researching new drills to help kids learn skills they are struggling with!
Zoe is a former gymnast from Hot Springs who had joined our competitive coaching team. She has her master’s degree from Chadron State College in Organizational Management. Zoe is excited to keep growing in the sport of gymnastics and pass on her love of the sport to her gymnasts!
