25 years ago, on Labour Day weekend, I became a certified coach. I had one very special coach who held all the traits that made me want to follow in those footsteps and spread the love of a sport I held so dear to my heart.
Over the years I have had the privilege of working with so many wonderful young athletes, coaches, officials, parents, and grandparents. I have made life- long friendships with so many great people through figure skating and hockey and continue to each day.
Lots of highs and lows! When they say “blood, sweat and tears” it is the truth. You are the teacher, counsellor, motivator, 2nd parent, #1 cheering fan, manager/boss and more all wrapped up in one.
As I look back today with so much pride, I am a little emotional at how far I have come. My business name is not just a name, it is my “blood, sweat and tears”. It is my accomplishment as well as so many others that have been part of this journey with me.
I couldn’t have done it without all of you and your continued support. Thank you for the encouragement, love, and inspiration that keep me striving for more. My students bring such joy to my life and watching them grow over the years has been a huge part of why I continue doing what I love to do.
