The Best Things About Being a Coach

Ever wondered what it would be like to be a coach once you're done with training? I always did. Having trained as a competitive gymnast for eight years, I have now shifted my focus to coaching and I love it more than I could ever have imagined. Although I miss training as much as I used to, coaching has allowed me to see the sport from a whole new perspective and use my experience to help younger girls. I want to encourage current gymnasts to consider getting into coaching as well as help coaches realise how vital and unique their role really ...

This season, the freshmen of the Illinois women’s gymnastics team had a lot to bond over.

What To Look For In Your Daughters Coach

Both my husband and I coached for over 25 years. It was a responsibility we took very seriously. We were blessed to have coached many National Champions and All Americans in both wrestling and gymnastics. When I look back on those years I never think of the accomplishments we achieved, but instead I think of the relationships that we built. I think of the athletes now and see all they have become as a person and I am so thankful that I could honestly say we coached from the heart. The definition of coach is: to encourage and train someone to a...

I will never regret that our daughters played sports. We commuted 3 hours to and from practice, spent lots of money on travel and our world revolved around their schedules. I look at the women they have become and would not change a thing. I came across this great article on 8 essential steps to raising confident girls: 1. Tell her you believe in her 2. Get her outside 3. Pursue her interest 4. Minimize the princesses 5. Parent with empathy 6. Help her love her looks 7. Sign up for sports 8. Show interest in her academics One of the best decisi...

A Tribute to British Gymnast Hannah Whelan

This morning, at around 10am British time, British Gymnastics announced the retirement of 2-time Olympian Hannah Whelan from elite gymnastics aged 22. Hannah has played a vital role in numerous British European and world-level teams and will be missed by the elite gymnastics community!
