About Us

Welcome to East Coast Gymnastics & Cheer, where we believe that gymnastics is more than just a sport; it’s a foundation for success in life. Founded in 2008 by Kyle and Mandy Van Fossen, East Coast Gymnastics & Cheer is the culmination of a lifetime of dedication to gymnastics and cheerleading. Kyle, a former Junior Elite Gymnast, and Mandy, a former cheerleader for the Semi-Pro Scranton Eagles football team, have been coaching gymnastics for over 30 years. Together, they opened East Coast Gymnastics & Cheer with a vision to provide a safe, fun, and supportive environment for children of all ages to develop their gymnastics and cheerleading skills, build confidence, and create lasting friendships.
