Tumbleweed Gymnastics Inc. was founded by David and Sandi Holt. David is a former Ohio State University gymnast and has over 27 years of gymnastics training, competition, and coaching experience; Sandi is a former drill team dancer and "Children's Theater" actress.

David began sharing his talents by coaching boys and girls at local YMCAs in his spare time. As these athletes showed some promise, David would solicit assistance from local gyms to take on some of these athletes and to them assist financially. All the gyms that were approached, even some well known local gyms, turned the athletes down. This is how David and Sandi's vision, Adopt-A-Tumbleweed Program, was born. Adopt-A-Tumbleweed is a program set up for soliciting sponsors to help pay the tuition of those who could otherwise not afford the classes. The solicitation is done by the parent of the athlete from their own pool of networks or relationships. Tumbleweed will also try to assist through its own networking sources. Since Tumbleweed is a For-Profit entity, donations have been hard to come by, although many have donated out of the kindness of their hearts for no tax write-off to help athletes participate in our programs. Funds are limited and you must apply and qualify.
