Understanding whom you are dealing with and what they believe in is important, especially if you are entrusting the welfare of your child to a program. When you combine the major responsibilities of staying in tune with the world’s most technically advanced and ever-changing sport, the inherent dangers involved in gymnastics and the large responsibility of our role in your child’s development, it is paramount that we have the resources, experience and desire to do the job right.

Hello, My name is Laura Honore`
If I were a parent of a child in the program I would want to know about the person or persons who is going to instruct my child. So I have taken the time to give you a little history on my path as a gymnastics instructor and coach.
I started teaching at the age of 14 in my garage at home. My parents would really get tired of opening the door to neighborhood children waiting for me to get home from school so that they could be taught gymnastics. When I graduated high school I knew that I wanted to teach and coach gymnastic professionally, so that is what I did. In 1982 I went to work for the OKC gymnastics center under the leadership of Jack and Nancy Nortz. I was employed there from 1982-1985. I married and moved to Monterey, California
where I was employed by the Monterey gymnastics center under the leadership of ex Olympian Heroshi Fugimoto. I was employed there from 1985-1988. I returned back to Lawton where in 1988 I started a gymnastics program for the SportsWorld fitness center. The program lasted as long as the facility was opened to 1990. In 1994 The Lawton YMCA was seeking a gymnastics instructor. I was hired and worked under the leadership of Cheryl Self in which I became a USAG gymnastics coach. In 1996 I took over as gymnastics coordinator and coach of the YMCA competitive team. I left the YMCA in 2000. I later returned in 2010 to become the gymnastics coordinator. I have been at the Lawton Fliptastic facility since October 2012 where I teach and coach beginners through level 2.
My teaching and coaching ethics are very simple. My goal is to instruct each child to the best of my ability. Work now and play later. I am stern but in a loving manner. And if you are wanting to see your child excel in the sport of gymnastics, well that’s my goal for every child in this program. I thank you for the opportunity to teach your child.
