Every once in a while I sit back and deeply evaluate my program. I do this in my mind and in my heart. It helps me connect with where we are, where we are going, what are goals are. I ask myself are we progressing, are we regressing, what are our greatest challenges, etc.
Over the last 5 years our program has grown in numbers, in skills, in families, in schools, in coaches. The depth of our growth in skills on the floor through tumbling and stunting is spectacular.
Years ago The Summit was not even a dream for our kids. Years ago we could not win a single competition. Years ago we consistently placed dead last at every single competition.
Then walks in Donald Jones and our world began to change.
HE asked us to expect more. HE asked us to demand more. HE demanded more from us. HE asked us to compete more. HE elevated ALL of us.
It is only through my extreme faith and confidence in Donald that we are where we are today.
This season he has given us one highly competitive competition schedule. He has done this intentionally. He did this because we are ready for our next challenge. Our coaches and athletes are expected to follow his lead and ...you guessed it..trust the process. I trust the process with all of my heart - I trust and believe so strongly in Donald that he gives me anxiety - lol!
Our little program isn't so little anymore. We have many new faces and more teams. But, the mission hasn't changed. We are a competitive program with the focus to challenge your child to become the very best athlete your child can be. If this means we win - great. If this means we lose - thats ok too because it takes both to become better - to become greater - to become a champion.
Donald, trust yourself as I trust you.
