Executive Director and WAG Head Coach

Amanda has been coaching athletes in the sport of gymnastics since 1995. She began gymnastics at 4 years of age at the Sudbury Laurels Gymnastics Club where she competed for many years. This is where her passion for the sport began and she is now very proud to be able to offer a safe and elite venue where the next generation of athletes can explore this exciting sport and make their own dreams a reality.
Amanda specialized in Psychology at the University of Toronto focusing on child development and cognition which provides her with a great deal of insight into the different learning stages and varying cognitive abilities of children. Following this degree, Amanda completed a Bachelor of Laws at Osgoode Hall Law School. Her love of gymnastics and enjoyment of working with children, however, kept her out of the legal field!
Amanda currently coaches Provincial and National athletes but oversees the progress of all pre-competitive and competitive girls in the gym. Her athletes have had great success including a perfect 10.0 on Beam at Provincial Championships. These successes also include many Provincial All around Champions, Vault, Bars, Beam and Floor provincial Champions, Eastern Canadian All-around and Bars Champions, a Canadian Nationals Team alternate, a Gold on Floor at Nationals Selection competition and many athletes have taken the all-around Gold at the International Gymnix competition, as well as at competitions in various countries like Florida and Barbados.
Amanda believes that the strength of a coach lies in their ability to continue to learn and seek self-improvement and encourages her team of coaches to learn from one another.
