Why A Live Event?

In four years, Happy Gymnastics has expanded beyond selling original lesson plans to a training course, multiple consulting gigs, partnerships with gyms around the world, and a one of a kind community filled with positivity, open-heartedness, encouragement, and a love of preschool gymnastics.

Which is why I wanted to create a small, curated experience specific to preschool.

It only feels natural to bring all of these amazing things together in real life for the first time! We have big dreams for what this event will become, but for now, we’re intentionally keeping things intimate with a handful of powerful presentations given over one day to a small group of attendees.

Lastly, don’t let the name fool ya’. Coaches, owners, and directors outside the Denver area are welcome to attend too! But you’ll want to be careful; most people have a hard time leaving. :)

I can’t wait to (finally) meet you in person!

Sarah Fennell-Cooper

Creator & Founder, Happy Gymnastics

 

The day after they went through Sarah’s training, my coaches were able to implement differentiated progressions and new classroom management strategies into their classes—which is exactly what I was looking for. It was awesome to see the way she works with all of our staff members, from ones that are really experienced to ones that were just starting out.”

Where It’s Going Down…

“The Stanley Marketplace is a community-focused, mixed-use urban marketplace that celebrates the best Colorado has to offer.”

With 50+ independently owned Colorado businesses collectively offering a place for you to eat, drink, shop, exercise, play, work, and more—including close friend of HG, Bounce Stapleton—the Stanley is the perfect spot to host HG’s first live event!

 
 
 

Who The Summit Is For...

Preschool directors, gym owners, and preschool coaches who are looking to learn, connect, and engage with new ideas, strategies, and tactics that will power-up your preschool gymnastics program.

Who the Summit IS NOT for...

Anyone outside of our wacky and magical preschool world will be disappointed (i.e. team coaches) as we won’t be talking about release moves on bars or elite level gymnastics ;)

Happy Hour

You need some time to process after an event like this. Usually, that happens once you get home, where you can’t follow up on ideas.  

That’s why we’ve built in time to talk, question, and laugh at the end of a busy, meaningful day.

 
 

Hotels, Food, Parking, and All the Other Things 

Hotels

Since this is our first year, we’re focusing on the part of the HG community that’s within driving distance of Denver, hoping regional coaches and gym staff can “make a day of it.” However, if you’d like to “make a weekend out of it” (by coming from farther away) and stay for a night or two, there are a number of hotels with differing price points nearby. Of course, downtown Denver is lovely as well, and about 25 minutes from our venue.

Lunch

Lunch on the day of the event will be on your own. The Stanley has a lot of great restaurants to choose from—burgers, bbq, pizza, fine dining, biscuits, and upscale street tacos just to name a few. We know you’ll find something tasty.

Parking

The Stanley has a huge parking lot with tons of free parking. If you’re flying in, take the train (just $10) from DIA to the Peoria or Central Park Stations. A Lyft or Uber ride is a few minutes from there.

As a gym manager on a budget, Sarah’s lesson plans came at the right time! I love the simple layout of the plans and that no expensive props are required. I can relax knowing the work of everyday lesson plans is gone and that children are being instructed correctly for their age and skill progressions.”

Carol McGarity – Gym Manager, Lawrence Gymnastics and Athletics

 
 

FAQs

 

Do I have to be in Denver to attend? . . .

Yes. This is a live, hands-on training event. There will be NO live-streaming and NO recordings.

Does my ticket include my meal? . . .

Meals are on your own, but The Stanley has a ton of great options and you never have to leave the building!

Is there a group discount? . . .

If you’re bringing a large group (5 or more) please contact Sarah directly to inquire about group rates. Her email is sarah@happygymnastics.com

Can I still attend if I’m not from the Rocky Mountain region? . . .

Absolutely! The HG community is international and you’re welcome to come from wherever you are.

Is this a one-day event? . . .

Yes, this is one jam-packed day of learning, connecting, and sharing. We’ll start promptly at 9am and go all day. Please do your best to be on time.

Will there be recordings of the sessions? . . .

Nope.

What should I wear? . . .

The Stanley Marketplace can be drafty at times, so bring a jacket or sweatshirt. The afternoon portion of the event will be in Bounce Stapleton’s gym, so you’ll want to make sure you’re in something you can move freely in. Also, Denver’s got great weather, especially in summer, but the nights can get cool.
