Natanya at work at Jump Gymnastics

Jump Gymnastics is PES’s March 2022 Employer of the Month.

With the motto Courage for Life, Jump Gymnastics is a local Vancouver company that promotes physical literacy for children from 6 months to 8 years to promote healthy development. Jump uses fundamental movement, developmental gymnastics, and introductory sports skills to provide children with a solid foundation to allow them to explore other sports and physical activities.

Started in 2008 by Jennifer Hood (Owner/Director), Jump currently operates in 2 locations (Vancouver – City Square at Cambie & 12th) and North Vancouver (Dollarton Hwy & Riverside Dr.) with a 3rd location scheduled to open in Richmond – Spring 2022.

Currently, Jump has a staff of 14 – one of whom is Natanya.

Natanya has worked at City Square since July 2021 as a Coach at Jump. She works a full schedule with a variety of age groups.

About Jump, Natanya says:

“My favorite part of the job is seeing the smiles on the kids’ faces when they’re learning important life and physical literacy skills … we make the gym a safe place for kids to explore and be yourself … (and) sometimes we just have to go with the flow of the kids.”

About Natanya, Matthew (Team Leader at City Square) says:

“Natanya is thriving at Jump! She is not only meeting our expectations but she has been stepping up to take on new tasks and leading classes independently. I have seen a lot of growth from Natanya over the past few months and I am looking forward to what’s next for her. We love having her as part of our team.”
