Hello! My name is Skye, I’m 21 and I’m in my first year of university at St Thomas. I recently moved to Fredericton from Nova Scotia. I started out as a dancer when I was 3 and moved on to gymnastics when I was 6. At 13 I signed up for cheer-leading classes and I loved it! I am super passionate about gymnastics in general and I love sharing my knowledge and helping kids learn the skills that they need to succeed.

Skye coaches our Little Gymnasts and Gymnaestrada groups. She is also assisting the head coach with the competitive group.

Skye has started her coach training courses and is already trained as a Rhythmic Gymnastics Foundations Coach. (NCCP 1)
