STEER CLEAR OF THIS GYM. This website is an example. All of these "good" reviews are from Coach Jennifer herself. This place is FILLED with drama. Ask any of the coaches who have left or been thrown out because Coach Jennifer felt "threatened" by them. Coach Jennifer is never at the gym because she sits on facebook all the time and bully's people who don't agree with everything she says. She has NO gymnastics background. If the truth hurts, Coach Jennifer, Camden Area Moms, Karin M, Camden M, Team M, Kim M, ...whichever personality you choose to use at the moment...so be it.
My turn to jump on this wagon....
WGC is a great gym, both in terms of the facility and coaching staff. My daughter attends here, and is - most importantly - safe here. She loves her coach. It doesn't bother me if a coach is out and she has a substitute coach. As with anything, coaches change or are out, just like at her daycare or with her teachers in school. But I know Coach Jennifer has always been the coach for team. She has trained each and every coach there since forever, so I feel comfortable with any of the current coaching staff taking care of my baby. (some coaches are no longer there, but that is a good thing IMO). Ladies, Monica is just Tracy Phillips, stirring up trouble again, lol :)
Funny how a bunch of irritated, defensive moms can band together! :)
I too am a gym mom. I think Miss "Monica" has a case of mistaken... identity. WGC is - the best. Period. Our gymnasts compete and train non-stop. Our coaches train all levels, and are the only gym in Kershaw County qualified to do so (which may be why they are a threat!) It is true that our team attends at least 7 meets per year. Oh believe me, it is almost every weekend of the year (it can be hard on the family, truth be told, but it is worth it)! I too am fed up with these made-up reviews, given how hard these kids work. And how hard their coaches work. This is just an attempt to put down hard workers and a phenomenal gym.
The internet is a great thing, but also dangerous as it allows any person with a vendetta to post false stuff about people and businesses.
Go Team Wateree!
I am a team mom at WGC. I do not know who "Monica P" is, but it frustrates me to read her false "review". My daughter travels to at least 6 - 7 meets per year. At least! As anyone who really does have a gymnast in the family knows, it is very expensive & time consuming to be a competitive gymnast - something this "Monica" clearly doesn't know (because it is a false review maybe?). Coach turn-over? What? Coach Jennifer has always been my daughter's coach, and we have other wonderful coaches as well. Maybe "Monica" was referring to another gym? Or just is, for whatever reason, a hater? As a customer & mom with a child on this so-called "beginner team", I am disgusted to read garbage posted by people who are threatened by our girls and our gym!! Yes, we are good!! Yes, we win!! And our gym trains through the ELITE level (hardly beginners?). Our girls work their tails off as does their coaches. Haters, go find one of the start-up gyms around here to pick on (or, wait a minute, maybe that is who it is doing this!). I am a PROUD mom of a Wateree gymnast! And a proud customer of such a solid, FABULOUS gym! GO TEAM WATEREE!
I did not have a very good experience with this gym. While the facility is nice and equipment is up-to-date, there is a lot of coach turnover, particularly in the upper levels. The gym does offer team, but they are not very competitive--only participating in one or two meets a year (if that). This gym is great for beginner gymnasts, but I would not recommend for higher level competitive gymnastics.
Wateree Gymnastics is top-notch. My children are learning and are in good, safe hands. I can bring my kids to gym class, and watch them actually learn - in a comfortable and friendly environment. The gym itself is quite large and is filled with what you would expect from a USA gymnastics olympic club gym. Wouldn't take my children anywhere else.
Wateree is a great gym. It is sad to see Tracy Phillips post below, as I know her from when she was (briefly) at the gym. When I was there, she was a pot-stirrer and frankly, I was happy to see her leave, as I can't stand gym mama drama! Her post is blatantly inaccurate (surprised the owner hasn't had it removed to be honest), and is really just a reflection of her own "issues". Don't even know who the other person is (probably Tracy again under another name!) but again, pfft to your "mean" post.
I love this gym, as does my daughter. WGC is professionally run, and the coaches and staff members are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. My daughter has progressed so quickly, it is amazing. Most importantly though, is that she is also happy! The team just went to their first meet and the girls who competed took all of the top places. And with respect to Coach Jennifer? Yes - she is tough - she has to be - but if you know her at all, you know that she would give you the shirt off of her back. She is not only a coach but also a mom. She works so hard to train these girls, and run this gym, and as a team mom I am just so sick of nasty people and their online "vendettas". Find a therapist and get off the internet.
Keep up the great work, Wateree! I highly recommend this gym, the coaches & staff are very professional, and the gym is awesome! My daughter has made incredible progress and we are both very happy here. :)
When my kids are at WGC I know that they are being taught properly, and that they are safe. Their coaches are trained and knowledgeable, and classes are not run by high schoolers, or worse, by fellow students that are in a higher level class. I highly recommend this gym, to anyone in the area looking for high quality.
