Dragon Gymnastics Team, under the direction of internationally recognized Al Fong and 2007 World Team Assistant Coach Armine Barutyan-Fong, is one of only a few gymnastics organizations in the country with the ability to provide training that leads young women to national and international competition.
Since 1979, Dragon Gymnastics has upheld its reputation as one of the finest gymnastics training organizations in the world by producing countless state, regional, national and world champions. Many of these champions become USA national team members as well as recipients of full scholarships to major universities.
There is also Olympic success & recognition as athletes have gone on to represent the USA at the 2004 Summer Games in Athens Greece USA Olympic Women’s Gymnastics silver medalists Terin Humphrey and Courtney McCool have come to exemplify the renowned Dragon training approach. Ivana Hong was selected as an alternate to represent Team USA at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing China and Sarah Finnegan was the alternate for the 2012 Olympics in London, England.
It is the mission of Dragon Gymnastics to provide the opportunity for young athletes to make a lasting contribution to the sport of gymnastics while developing life-long leadership skills.
While the goal of Dragon Gymnastics is to win medals for the USA, realistically not all Dragons have the opportunity to do so. However, all team members have their own individual goals to pursue – it’s our job to help them achieve these dreams.
