“One of the reasons I chose rhythmic and your club is because the girls also have a chance to perform and donate their time to the community. Also, you are a good role model and very supportive. The girls spend so much time at the gym, I hope that they are not just learning to compete, but also to be leaders and give back to their community… You are an amazing role model, and the girls can learn a lot from you on how to be sportsmanlike, and leaders.”

“Thank you for the newsletter. I really like your approach to teaching these girls how to conduct themselves. The idea of supporting others is so important in all areas of our lives. Maddie will gain physical strength and skill in your club but more importantly, she will learn to keep trying and to help others. I was so proud of her when she said a few days before the Kanata Cup, “I want a medal but I am very proud that I am good enough to compete in a competition now.” I am sure you helped her have such a healthy attitude toward her sport. Thank you to you and your coaches for all of your hard work and for modeling good sportsmanship. Have a Happy Easter.”

“Thanks for the call on Sunday evening – it made Hannah’s day. We now have a very motivated and keen kid. We give you a huge amount of credit for allowing Hannah to back off last year when she found it all to be too much, and then gently encouraging her back into it in the spring. In any other circumstance, I’m sure that she would not be back to gymnastics. However with your support and encouragement, she’s not only doing it but she loves it and is now keen to compete again. Thank you so, so much for everything.”

“Hello…I wanted to say that we enjoyed yesterday’s performance very much. You had obviously put a lot of work into it and I thought it paid off, opt only in the performance of the participants but also in the smooth organization of the event. It really went without a hitch and I am sure that was due to your abilities. So, thank you for a Sunday afternoon that was entertaining, informative and delightful. Sarah (my daughter) has thoroughly enjoyed the experience with the ORGC and we will be looking for ways to continue the experience. Thanks for a great day!”

This is something we’ve been looking for since we moved to Ottawa last summer: the challenge of the body & the mind and the beauty of the music & the movement. I also like the way you train them: encouragement and discipline. Andrea has enjoyed training thoroughly.”

“I am delighted to inform you that Ada received an Award of Excellence 2003 with outstanding Athletic Achievement from the Ottawa Sports Award Organization last Tuesday (May 4, 2004). Two days later, on May 6, a lady from the CDSS informed me that the Jane Cameron Award goes to Ada. Upon hearing the good news I am extremely excited indeed. Within two days, Ada’s diligence has been paid off. On this stage, I have to appreciate your continuous effort in training Ada in good shapes all the time. Her routines are amazing to both the parents and the team-mates in our community (Ottawa Rhythmic Cats) with good comments. Being a coach for Ada since 2001, your tremendous inspiration in raising Ada to the competitive level deserves a credit. Next month Ada will start a solo as a guest performer in the Carleton University to the public too. We will keep an eye on it. With best regards and have a precious Mother’s Day.”
