What is NOLA SPARKLE ?

NOLA SPARKLE is an eight-week mentorship program at NOLA Gymnastics that helps young gymnasts explores how they can SPARKLE not only as athletes, but as people.

NOLA Sparkle was created by coach Lillian Powers, a junior and honor student at Isidore Newman School and Captain of their Varsity Gymnastics team

Coach Lillian has trained at NOLA Gymnastics since she was 3 years old. She has competed and medaled as an acrobatic gymnast at the local, state, national and international level and is a three time National Champion.

Curriculum of NOLA Sparkle

In weekly sessions incorporated within their training, we will use games and storytelling to introduce our athletes to 7 core concepts. While these concepts are important in gymnastic training, the girls will learn how these ideas also can empower them in life outside of the gym.

The NOLA SPARKLE program will culminate in a very sparkly gymnastics meet and ceremony. Our goal is that the girls will leave feeling empowered, and know that they each SPARKLE in their own special way.

The course will be incorporated into Acro and Artistic training time at NOLA Gymnastics, so there is no added cost to usual lessons.
