Head Coach and Technical Director
Hello. My name is Casey Rigby. I am the Head Coach and Technical Coordinator at Leading Edge Gymnastics Academy. LEGA has been my home for more than 5 years. I have been a part of the gymnastics world for over 26 years. I started gymnastics at the age of 2 at Flips USA Gymnastics in Reno, Nevada and continued until I was 18.
My coaches in Reno were Neil and Patty Resnick. Neil is a national team staff member (he coaches Olympians) and has been for several years. He is also the Boise State Gymnastics co head coach. He is well known to be one of the best coaches in the nation. Patty Resnick is one of the best choreographers and beam coaches in the nation. She travels all over the country to choreograph and coach at camps. As a Flips staff and club they own the longest record of winning seasons. I was blessed enough to be a part of that journey.
I continued to level 10 and received a full ride scholarship to Western Michigan University. I completed all four years as an NCAA athlete where I received a degree in psychology. After graduating I moved to Boise to work under Neil and Patty and learn from the greatest. While working at Boise State I also coached at a club team in Idaho where I coached the optional levels and took athletes to Nationals and Western Nationals every year with one of my athletes becoming a Western National beam champion. I have been coaching for 10 years now and it has becoming one of my greatest passions. I am excited to be at LEGA with this amazing staff and make it my permanent home!
