Waterford Gymnastics Center was founded in 2015 by Kristi and James Morrison & Earl and Pam Metzler. The center thrives as a family owned and operated business dedicated to the athletes in our programs.  

Kristi Morrison has spent the last several years as a coach here in CT, where she has successfully coached multiple State & Regional Champions as well as National Gymnastics Competitors and college gymnasts.  She holds her Master's in Elementary Education and is a CT Certified teacher.  She grew up in the business of gymnastics while training, competing, and coaching at her family owned and operated gym in Downingtown, PA.  She was the Pa Level 9 State Bar and Floor Champion and a National Championship Competitor.  She later used her gymnastics and tumbling skills as part of Hawaii Pacific University's Collegiate National Championship Cheerleading team.  

Earl & Pam Metzler have owned and operated our sister school, Metzler's Gymnastics Center, located in Downingtown, Pa since it was established in 1976.  They have spent years developing State, Regional & National Gymnastics Champions and have sent many of their athletes to college on full gymnastics scholarships at Division I schools.  Earl and Pam are proud of all the athletes that have gone through the Metzler's Program and look forward to continuing their tradition of excellence here in Waterford, CT.

All of our athletes practice in an 10,000+ square foot training center that houses 1- 42 ft. x 42 ft. carpeted spring floor, 1 40x40 carpeted floor, tumble track, many sets of uneven parallel bars, balance beams, submerged landing pits with access from all events, vaulting table, trampoline, skill shapes, spotting blocks, training mats, bungee system, moon bounce, and more.  We take pride in our facility by offering the best in equipment, instruction, and a clean and friendly atmosphere.  

Waterford Gymnastics Center strives to develop athletes that are self-disciplined, confident and know how to work together as teammates, values that are lifelong skills.  These goals are achieved by providing a knowledgeable staff and safe environment for all athletes, beginner through advanced.
