State Competition

Sadly we did not takes teams to the Ohio State competition this year. Thanks to Covid they were only able to give us a 5 day notice before fees and applications were due. I didn’t feel it was fair for me to ask families for LOTS of money with no heads up. But i am super happy that 3 of my students still competed in Solo events…..oh and they killed it!

So unbelievably proud of these three! They represented the Pink Ladies Baton Corp. perfectly!

I love coaching!

What an awesome week to be a coach. On Tuesday night my private lesson students killed it. The caught new tricks like they’ve been doing them for years. I was so freaking proud of them!!!!

Finally caught her illusion toss
Finally caught her vertical 2 spin
Caught not only her illusion toss but also her cartwheel toss!!!

Thursday night we presented the girls with teamwork awards. At competition EVERY judge commented on ALL six teams how great the girls twirled together as a team. Seems simple, right!? Well I’ve been coaching for 20 years and let me tell you that’s been the hardest part of being a coach. How do you make girls bond!? Get along!? It’s hard and you would think a pandemic would only make that more difficult, right!? Well i am blessed with an amazing team of girls and they made it look so easy. I’m very proud of all of them!

Competition!

Hooray we were finally able to compete after a long year!!!! My twirlers have been back in the gym twirler since last June, but this was the first time they were able to perform in person for others. Wow were they amazing. I am so happy they finally got to show off all their hard work!!!! We didn’t have all our normal family and friends there. First competition my parents weren’t at 😔. They kept all the teams in separate rooms while we waited our turn. We had our own lunch table. Everyone had to wear masks but the twirlers could take them off while performing. They rotated families in and out of the gym while their children performed. It moved pretty quick and i felt really safe.

John took this photo of me coaching! My bark is worse then my bite 😂

Me and my niece. She is a star!!!!
