Thank you to Amanda

We want to thank Amanda for coaching as part of the OGC Tumbling team over the past several years.  Amanda has been with the Oakville Gymnastics Club since she was a toddler.  She began her years at OGC first as a recreational participant, then as a competitive tumbler, and finally as a recreational and competitive coach.  We will miss having her as part of our Recreational and Tumbling program staff.  

Please wish Amanda all of the best as she takes some much needed time away from the gym to focus on her young family.  I'm sure we will see her around the Oakville community regularly.

Amanda will finish out the 2017 year coaching until the end of June.

All the best Amanda and thank you for your years of service to the Oakville Gymnastics Club.
