To Region 6: 

It is my honor to be appointed the regional chairman for Region 6 men’s gymnastics.  I will advocate for and strengthen men’s gymnastics in our region.

I started gymnastics at Ellis Gymnastics at two years old and competed in Region 6 from ages 7 - 18.  I won a gold medal on parallel bars at JO Nationals and then went on to UMass, Amherst and was a member of the first ECAC gymnastics champions in school history.  I have been coaching in the region since I can remember, contributing toward the success of Junior National Team members, JO national pommel horse champions and many other amazingly talented athletes and students. 

Since graduating UMass with a degree in Exercise Physiology, I earned a doctorate in movement and rehabilitation sciences from Sargent College at Boston University.  My dissertation was focused on Parkinson’s disease and the use of visual perception during locomotion.  Currently, I am a full time professor at UMass Boston in the Exercise and Health Sciences department.

Representing this region is a task that I will not take lightly.  I have learned so many skills, lessons, and values from countless coaches, judges and people in this region that it is time to give back.  Region 6 gymnastics is a valuable resource to our children, bringing opportunity and health, teaching team-work and dedication, and fostering independence and courage among our young athletes.   

Please contact me directly at 617-285-0406 with any questions or concerns you have about this season, or any of the recent changes.

Let’s work together to make Region 6 gymnastics a place for champions.

Daniel E. Young, Sc.D.
