Memories as a Coach? 
Having worked here for so many years there are too many happy and memorable times to write down. I do however treasure the fact that so many of my former students have become coaches themselves. I hope that I have passed my love of teaching children and the love of gymnastics on to them. They are all such great coaches and I am so proud of them.

I like coaching gymnastics because it is a beautiful sport, but more importantly it is a sport that actually teaches children self confidence.

No matter what leve the gymnast is at they are learning how to set goals, work towards those goals and overcome fear.
