Coach Tucker was born in Bend, Oregon, and raised in Spokane, Washington, where he attended Rogers High School. The first activity/sport he picked up was Rollerblading. While gaining coordination and strength, his parents bought him a trampoline. Here we have the very beginning of Tucker’s flipping background. After learning how to apply the techniques he learned on the trampoline to the skate park environment, Tucker decided to add a little more to his skill set.
Tucker has been coaching for TEN years, and considers his coaching style fast-paced with a BIG focus on fundamentals. When asked which event he likes coaching best, he replied with “Flips.” His favorite group at Spokane Gymnastics to work with is his Trampoline and Tumbling Team.
