Coach Phil


Coach Phil is one of the owners/founders of FlightSchool Gymnastics.  He started working with kids as a nanny when he was in high school and assisted his father with coaching soccer, eventually taking over from his dad as head coach.  He fell in love with coaching gymnastics when he went to his local gym to help out, and he has not looked back since!  Coach Phil is USAG safety certified, completed his U100 USA gymnastics course of instruction, certified as a National Level coach, held the USAG Oregon State Chair for 3 years, and was the Oregon USAG TOP’s manager for 8 years.  He has attended, coached, hosted, or sponsored numerous international and national level camps and workshops to include the Karolyi Ranch in Houston, TX.  The thing he loves most about coaching gymnastics is watching an athlete become confident with themselves and seeing them learn that hard work is important and leads to success!  He loves seeing kids achieve more than they ever dreamed, from being able to do a good handstand to winning a medal at Nationals.  Coach Phil teaches Fireflies and coaches the Optionals Level Team.
