JCGC started out as a program in conjunction with the local Parks and Recreation division, offering basic gymnastics and tumbling to the children of Calvert County in area schools and Community Centers. As the population of Calvert County and surrounding areas grew, Jennie Hinton saw a need for more significant gymnastics instruction and an interest in competitive gymnastics. This led Jennie to leasing space in a local industrial park where she set up two gyms; the upper gym with the 40x40 spring floor, tumble track and assorted tumbling equipment, and the lower gym with an arrangement of gymnastics equipment such as vault, uneven bars, balance beams and parallel bars.
With over 28 years of experience, Ms. Jennie coached for several private clubs and the Naval Academy gymnastics program before opening her own gym. She is very proud to have coached many Regional, State and National Champions! A Member of USAG (United States of America Gymnastics), Jennie is an experienced Skill Evaluator and Meet Director; Certified in Gymnastics Safety, First Aid and CPR and a National ranked coach.
