    First Meet!

    For a first meet, not bad at all. Judging was super tough though and I was injured, which is never good but I pulled through. Qualified for Provincials! I had a really big age group- 40 girls - from numerous provinces so I'm satisfied with how I did. Floor- 11.250. Pretty good considering I...

    First Meet Went Great - So Proud!

    The Fellows' first meet went so great. Well, once we got there but that is a long story. She had a great time and felt really good about everything. That night she told me she wished she could wake up and do it all over again. I don't think we could have asked for anything better. This was...

    Here We Go - First Meet Ever!

    This weekend will be The Fellows' first meet ever (Lv4). It is a small invitational and the coaches are telling them it's kinda like a practice meet. They didn't do a mock meet or bring judges in so at least they aren't laying on the pressure. For the past several weeks she has seemed nervous...

    First Meet as a Coach- Yikes!

    So in my years of coaching, I've always managed to be the in the gym help that doesn't need to go to meets and participate in all of the stress (oops, I mean fun...) associated with the process. I'm pretty comfortable playing a background role in most aspects of my life, so hearing all of the...
