Cara Reid

Cara is club president for St Bernadette’s Gym Club but that is not all she does. She makes sure we have enough coaches for classes, sorts new enrolments so the classes are well balanced, deals with arrangements for coaches and judges to travel and have accommodation for courses, and sources funding opportunities. In among this she has found time to gain coaching qualifications herself and coaches regularly about four hours every week and also fills in extra time when any of the other coaches are ill or otherwise unable to be there. At competitions she takes wonderful photos of all the gymnasts and also comes into general classes and photographs everyone at some time to make sure everyone is recognised in our newsletters and facebook pages. She has arranged with a supplier to make our club leotards and other clothing so parents can order direct for their children and she sorts out any problems which arise with this. We definitely would find it very difficult to manage without her.
