Growing up, I played every sport that was available to me. It is so important to me that kids become well rounded athletes before they specialize. I believe every kid should have the opportunity to explore every avenue when developing to see what sparks their interest. Having an off season from one sport allows you play another keeping your love for different sports alive! Sport has provided me the tools to build strong time management skills, strong character traits and strong relationships.
I’m so thankful to give back to Calgary as it has given me so much. I love this city and I’m proud to be Calgarian. I’m here to help kids learn and grow in the most fun way possible… PLAY!
