Jen Clinton-Owner/Head coach

 

Jen came to Twin Falls in June of 2001 and has owned Magic Valley Gymnastics since then. 


 Prior to coming to Idaho, Jen competed for the University of Maryland and was team captain her Senior Year.  Jen also represented her home country of Bermuda in 1997 at the World University Games and the 1998 Commonwealth Games.


Since an early age, Jen has always wanted to be a gymnastics coach and gym owner.  She has been coaching gymnastics since the age of 15.  She spent time at Hill's Gymnastics coaching under the guidance of 1996 USA Gymnastics Olympic Team Head Coach, Kelli Hill.

Jen has been a part of Region 2 Gymnastics coaching staff at the Level 10 National Championships.  Her athletes have earned collegiate athletic scholarships in Gymnastics, Softball and Track and Field.


Through all the successes her athletes have achieved at the competitive level, she continues to enjoy coaching all levels of gymnastics.  "Gymnastics is such a great sport because you can help every child be successful and see the pure joy with every new skill, whether it is the 3-year old walking across the beam by themselves for the first time, or a level 10 gymnast catching her first high flying release skill.  It is truly a remarkable experience, and I enjoy every minute of it!"


Jen and her husband are raising 3 kids of their own.  Jen's oldest daughter has been a successful gymnast, winning the 2017 XCel Silver State Championship.  When she is not at the gym, you can usually find her at the motocross track cheering her son on as he races to chase his dreams of being a supercross star, or at the dance studio watching her youngest daughter shine.
