Ashley Schumaker- 

Founder/ Competitive Coach


Growing up Ashley did artistic competitive gymnastics for over 10 years. She competed at a provincial level traveling as far as Hawaii, USA to compete. As an athlete her favourite event to train and compete was uneven bars. She trained alongside many provincial, national and high performance athletes. When she quit competing she decided to pursue coaching. Ashley coached in BC for numerous years. She started coaching parent & tot and pre-school classes. Over time she moved into a pre-competitive coaching job. When she started coaching at the pre-competitive level she found a love for teaching. She eventually started coaching at the provincial level in BC. 


When Ashley graduated from high school she left BC and moved to Lethbridge, AB. She has been coaching in lethbridge since August 2011. Since being in Lethbridge Ashley has been the competitive head coach at two different gymnastics clubs. She found a group of young athletes that gave her the drive to become a more knowlgeable and certified coach. 


Ashley founded Eclipse Gymnastics as a way to see a successful competitive program produce top notch gymnastics in Lethbridge. She wanted to create a gym where all athletes and families feel welcomed. She believes that gymnastics teaches young girls more then just gymnastics. Ashley believes there is always a spot for a competitive athlete in her program, no matter the age or ability.
