Top Posts of 2017 – Rec Gym Pros – for recreational & preschool gymnastics


Top 10 Posts on Recreational Gymnastics Professionals for 2017 || || @recgympros

Wowee!  It has been an awesome 2017 here at Rec Gym Pros —  our website  is the fullest it’s ever been with ideas & inspiration for recreational & preschool gymnastics coaches, managers and owners like you!

Since this time last year, it’s been so amazing (and humbling!) to see our community grow by leaps and bounds:

  • Our website traffic has tripled!
  • Our facebook page jumped from (a whopping) 135 followers to 2,750!
  • We started an account on Instagram and now we’re up around to 1825 followers!
  • Our mailing list subscription has also doubled!
  • Our roundtable contributions have tripled!

My absolute favourite thing about 2017 was the first ever RGP Rec Director Summit — where 40 of us were able to connect in real life to share our best practices, ask questions and swap resources, all related to recreational gymnastics topics that matter most.  I can’t wait for the next one (subscribe to our mailing list to make sure you don’t miss out on it!).

So thank you to everyone who has been a part of the RGP tribe in 2017!  I still can’t believe this little website idea I had has turned into this and I am so excited to see what happens in 2018!!
