NTXTT has lost a great coach -Sal Piersanti of Texas Tumblers


I wanted to inform you, if you haven’t heard, that we have lost a great coach, man and friend. Sal Piersanti, Coach of Tx Tumblers passed away Friday.

Please keep Sals wife, children, gym staff, athletes and families in your prayers.

The viewing is tomorrow from 5-8pm at Bluebonnet Funeral Home in Colleyville, Tx. The funeral is on Tuesday at 12:30pm.

Information has been posted on the Texas Tumblers Facebook page, on the NTXTT Coaches Facebook page and I have been putting on my Facebook page.

The gym family is asking for those wanting to help to send gift cards to be used for family food (Uber-eats), or groceries, gas, fast food, or other needs for the children or family. I think Visa gift cards would be best to use for their needs.

Also at the Vigil service tonight they asked everyone to write on a piece of paper (or in a card if sending) a letter to Traci and children your fondest memory of Sal to lift them up in this difficult time. Please send your cards, letters and/or gifts to the Texas Tumblers Gymnastics and Cheer at 6120 Huddleston Street, Ft Worth , Tx 76137.

NTXTT has sent flowers from NTXTT Association and all North Tx gyms.

I have also asked if they are in need of help coaching, or anything else to let us know and we’d be there to help. I found out Sal and his family were in the process of moving. I have offered our help with that if need.

I will keep you update as I hear more information.
