PEI’s Canada Games 2015 women’s gymnastics training team will take part in a training camp on June 21-22 as part of their preparation for team selection next fall. Hosted by Island Gymnastics Academy, the camp will also include coach education sessions open to all PEI coaches and a training session for Level 3 and 4 girls.
Guest coaches will be Nick Blanton and Carola Baker. Blanton is currently Head Coach of Fundy Gymnastics in Saint John, N.B. His many accomplishments include his role as the director of International Gymnastics Camp in the U.S., and coaching numerous National Team gymnasts in Great Britain. He is also a highly regarded clinician and gymnastics expert. Baker is a NCCP Level 4 Master Coach who has produced numerous national champions. She graduated with High Honours from the Seneca College Coaching Program and was herself a Central European AA silver medalist.
“ Our local gymnasts and coaches always learn so much from these training camps. We really value collaborating with coaches from other clubs. It’s an important part of our training program.” says Sharon Gareau, Technical Director of Gymnastics PEI.
