Owner, Founder, Girls AA Team Coach (levels 6-10)
Hello, my name is Danita Rigert and I am the owner, founder, and head gymnastics coach of Rigert Elite Gymnastics. I have been coaching in Troutdale, Gresham, and the greater Portland area as well as Northern Texas for 24 years. I opened Rigert Elite in March of 2013 and we have grown tremendously since then and continue to grow every day. I am very passionate about what I do. Working with children is extremely rewarding. I have worked with children of all ages ranging from one to eighteen. I love teaching recreational classes and my true passion is working with Compulsory and Optional Team Gymnasts. I and my coaching staff have coached many gymnasts who have won Individual State Championship Titles and led Teams to successful championships. I pride myself in the lifelong skills and lessons that I install in each of these young athletes. I enjoy being around people and I am very outgoing. I strive to be the most organized and professional coach possible. I continue my growth as a leader and coach by staying current with training, education, and certifications. I love the serious side of Gymnastics and the dedication that is required for these athletes to go far, but the most important part of this journey is that the students have FUN!!!
My Special Interests & Activities:
~Having family time is the most important aspect of my life. I enjoy spending time with my Husband Travis Rigert and my two wonderful children. Rigert Elite Gymnastics would not be possible without the dedication and support from my Family. I enjoy outdoor activities and living a healthy lifestyle through sports & physical fitness.
