Jumping Jax Gym, Scott Sassman
The Jumping Jax Gym was created in 2011 by Kinesiologist, Scott Sassman. A graduate of West Chester University and recipient of Teacher of the Year for the state of Florida's Juvenile Justice. I am a collegiate athlete that has been involved in sports for the past 30 years. During summer breaks in college, I was a camp counselor at a number of summer camps throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. During my P.E. Practicum, I taught early childhood education and have taught as a lead teacher in both preschools and Kindergarten. In 2001 I began assisting in implementing a preschool Physical Education curriculum called The Wacky Gym.
This program, founded by Patrick Hall has grown from a one-van mobile unit into a six-van program with two facilities in New Jersey. With Physical Education being a necessity at the early childhood stages of life, a program like Jumping Jax Gym can ensure our children reach their potential.
