MAGA Program Director & Head Coach

My name is Mark Morphew and I have been coaching gymnastics since 2005. I started out in Worthington Minnesota coaching community education classes along with MAGA teams and the High School team. Since then I haven't stopped. I spent several years in Mankato coaching at both MAGS and K&G Gymnastics all the while coaching Mankato West High School. I have been lucky enough since that time to be coaching full time at New Prague and now at NGC. My coaching philosophy is athlete first. I believe in transformative not transactional coaching and do whatever I can to advocate for my athletes in and out of the gym. I love watching my athletes grow as people and hope I can contribute to their overall wellbeing and success in life!

Northfield Gymanstics Club Director

NGA Program Director & Head Coach

 I have been coaching gymnastics for over 10 years, been a director for 6 and a judge for 5.  I am a Women’s Meet Director, Red Cross Instructor and have an associate’s degree in EMS.  My coaching philosophy is to develop community citizens that are positive, responsible, and able to work in a team environment to complete goals.  By instilling a work ethic that allows them to be successful in sports, school and their communities.  I truly believe in coaching athletes “beyond the backflip” and helping them to realize their potential both in and out of the gym.  I look forward to meeting all of you and encourage you to say hi if we run into each other at the gym!

Levels 2-3 NGA Competitive Coach

I have grown up in a gymnastics gym and although I occasionally tried other sports, I've always come back to the gym.  I've always wanted to be a coach and watch younger athletes complete skills that I helped them learned.  I am a sophomore in high school and plan on going on majoring in cosmetology and business when I move onto college.
