Team Coaches

Head Coach:

Coach Paul: Paul Wileyto has been coaching our trampoline team since 2007. He began trampoline at Homewood-Flossmoor High School in Illinois in 1971. (Illinois high schools had trampoline as part of gymnastics until 1978.) He attended the University of Wisconsin (Madison) from 1973-1977, and competed in gymnastics as a high-bar specialist (alas, there was no trampoline competition). Paul started judging men’s gymnastics in 1979, and has been judging USAG boy’s gymnastics since 1982. While in graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania, he coached the Penn Men’s Gymnastics Club, which consisted of former members of the Penn Men’s Gymnastics Team, many new undergraduates, and several graduate and professional students. By day, Paul is a statistician at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and Director of Biostatistics for the Penn Tobacco Use Research Center.
