Our program started at North Orange County YMCA in response to the success of the Men’s Gymnastics Team. Scott Crouse was the first coach who later went on to coach at SCATS and now has his program in Texas. Eric took over in 1974 and was able to convince the YMCA to allow him to set up a satellite gym in La Habra. The team previously worked out in a 60 by 40 foot multipurpose room. Every day the equipment was set up and put away.With a change of YMCA directors, the satellite program was abandoned. Eric negotiated the lease of the building and bought much of the equipment with the help of the parent’s club.
The program has been going strong since 1982 and the rest is history.
