In Memory of Skip Eckert

It is with great sadness that Region 5 is mourning the unexpected loss of a great coach, mentor and friend, Skip Eckert.

Skip has had a long history with the sport of gymnastics.  He and his wife, Connie were the owners of The Gymnastics Academy of Cleveland in Ohio.   He has, also, worked at West Side Gymnastics, Classics Gymnastics, and has currently worked at PowerHouse Gymnastics for the last eight years.

Skip’s greatest gift was the ability to make each child feel special, confident and capable of anything he thought they could accomplish.  They are stronger because of his constant encouragement and tireless dedication.

Our heartfelt sympathies are with his family.
