Hi, I’m Kirk Summers, son of Phil and Chris Summers, the owners of Spearfish Sports Academy. I grew up here is Spearfish and love our great community! I am the class instructor as well as the program director for the SGA Ninjas Program.

I have been involved in gymnastics for my whole life. I grew up in the gym while my mom and dad were teaching. Before I began teaching I spent six years in the gym and traveling to gymnastics meets with my parents. This time gave me a great opportunity to watch and learn about all aspects of gymnastics.

When I am not in the gym teaching Ninja I enjoy tennis and playing with my dog. I also love being outside and going for hikes in the beautiful Black Hills

I love working kids and helping them to become strong and confident Ninjas! It is such a fun way to keep kids active and get them hooked on fitness.

I am looking forward to a great year of Ninja fun!



My name is Amber Speck. I have been coaching at Spearfish Sports Academy for 5 years! I coach the Xcel competitive team along with Gym Kids and Preschool classes.

My gymnastics career started in Massachusetts when I was 3 years old. I started gymnastics at Tops USA Gymnastics and finished my 15 years of gymnastics at All Star Gymnastics. I also worked for 3 years at All Star Gymnastics coaching preschool, recreational, and competitive team through level 8.

I moved from Massachusetts 5 years ago to attend Black Hills State University. I am an Elementary Education major working towards student teaching. I now live here in Spearfish with my fiancé and our two boxers. I can’t wait to share another great year gymnastics and fun!
