A graduate of Temple University, Schepers brings over 39 years
of Level 9 and 10 gymnastics coaching experience to the forefront
of the Bears gymnastics program.
He served as the director of the gymnastics program at the Main Line YMCA for 14 years including directing the 1994 team to the YMCA National Gymnastics Championship. His previous collegiate coaching experience includes a three-year stint as the assistant women’s gymnastics coach at Temple.
“I feel very fortunate to be given the opportunity to coach gymnastics at such a fine institution,” said Schepers. “Ursinus carries with it a reputation for not only a strong gymnastics program, but academic excellence as well.”
“I’m excited about bringing my gymnastics experience to a team with the potential to capture the national championship,” continued Schepers. “Not only do I hope to bring out the best gymnastics in each member of the team, I hope to be able to help them find the inner strengths and confidence that will help guide them through their adult lives.”
To date, Ursinus has placed second and third at the NCGA National Gymnastics and has brought home four ECAC titles. At the 2007 and 2008 NCGA National Championships, Schepers was named Coach of the Year and also earned Coach of the Year honors from the NCGA, Division III East Region. During his time at Ursinus, he has coached two All-Around Champions, One Beam and Three Floor champions at the NCGA Championships.
