High School Head Coach
Hi my name is Courtney Engel. I am from Maple Grove, Minnesota. I graduated with a degree in Anthropology and Psychology in December 2013. I started gymnastics when I was 2 years old. I went to Twin City Twisters until I was a level 6 gymnast, then I moved to Midwest Gymnastics for levels 7-9. After breaking my arm I decided to join the Maple Grove High School Gymnastics team. I competed for Maple Grove for 4 year. I started coaching at RRVG in the summer of 2011 and never left. My favorite part about coaching is watching the “light bulb” moments when a gymnast figures out a new skill.
