Jonathan Pol is the most amazing coach and mentors to the kids at Island Allstars. He is a Christian family oriented guy that focus on building the kids up in and outside of the gym. He and his staff are fully certified and the community absolutely adores them. If you want progression, this is the gym for you!

Melissa J

This is a gym that puts the kids FIRST! The owner wants the athletes to strive to set and reach goals they may have thought never possible. He has a talent for building confidence to make “impossible” dreams POSSIBLE.

We love this program, facility, and staff! The superior coaching staff and a fun family environment. I would highly recommend this gym to any level of athlete.

Absolutely would recommend this gym to anyone with a child wanting to learn a skill of tumbling and cheer. The coaches here care for our kids as if they were their own and they don't give up on them ever. The owners are fabulous and know that you are not like everyone else and help make things affordable for everyone involved. Love this gym and the cheer family I am a part of

My daughter loves cheering for Island. She has gained skills and confidence since starting with Island. We drive over 45 minutes one way because it is worth it. There are places closer to our home, but she's so happy here. Coach Jon and his staff really are investing in the lives of the kids. They love what they do and it shows.

This is our 2nd season cheering at Island and we wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I've never been to a place where the lines of communication between parent, athlete and coach is completely open. It truly feels like family here! So excited for my daughter's new season with Island! #TheWarIsComing

Jon, I have to tell you seeing Lain today in the video made my day!! I was beyond excited and can't wait to see all the AMAZING things you are doing with her and everyone else for that matter. Makes everything worth it!! I was ready to give up cheer, Because of my horrible experience. You went above and beyond to reach out and help when you didn't have to. We learned so much doing half season cheer but wanted something more. I stressed the price for a 6-year-old but after today. I honestly 10000% feel every penny spent has been beyond worth it. You are truly Amazing and it shows in the children. I just want to thank you for dealing with my 1 million questions, never making me feel like I was a bother and teaching my child as well as dealing with her. You and Michael are truly wonderful and I can see in my own stubborn child how lucky we are to be apart of Island!! Thank you for reaching out to me to help almost a year ago!! You have changed Lain's life!!!

My daughter Arriana has been taking tumbling classes from Jon for two years. She started out with him in his driveway before the gym ever existed. She did not have a lot of confidence in herself when she first started with Jon and was reluctant to try to learn a back tuck. Now two years later she is throwing Fulls with Jon's assistance. I have seen her confidence in herself soar under his teaching and guidance. Jon also helped to coach her high school cheer team and encouraged her to try new skills that she would not have otherwise attempted. Now not only does she take classes with Jon at Island Cheer and Tumbling but she also now works alongside Jon as one of his All Star cheer coaches. I would highly recommend Island Cheer and Tumbling and Coach Jon to anyone looking for a positive environment where your child will be challenged to learn new skills and will be successful. It is a wonderful program with many talented coaches. We have taken tumbling from many places over the years and by far Island Cheer and Tumbling is the best!! - Kathleen McCarty

Kristy Davis

Jon has been coaching my daughter for the past two years. I am truly amazed at how far she has come with Jon's help. She was with another gym for awhile before we heard about Jon. She wasn't progressing passed a cartwheel and so we left and started with Jon. She is now able to do her back walkover and back handspring! She is also working on her back tuck! My daughter and I both love Jon and would highly recommend him. He obviously loves his kids and will get any child to the next level. All of his coaches are supportive and amazing with kIds! Thank you Jon and Island Cheer! - Kristy Davis
