Hello everyone! My name is Cassandra Wong, and I am one of the NCCP level 1 pre-competitive coaches here at KIN.
As a former competitive gymnast myself, I am very passionate about coaching, because the sport of gymnastics is so close to my heart. I trained for ten years and made it to the National level with Judy Howard-Holmes as my coach, competing four times at Canadian Championships and medaling bronze on Vault twice. Unfortunately, I had to retire from competition after several repetitive ankle injuries, but I was excited to start coaching kids and sharing my knowledge with them instead. The flexibility, strength, power, dedication, and sheer willpower required to do gymnastics, makes it one of the toughest sports out there, which is why I really respect and love Gymnastics so much. I have worked with and specialized in young kids for the entire eight years I’ve been coaching. I enjoy laying down the foundation and building a love for flipping around the gym. Young kids have such a wonderfully positive, vibrant and excited energy and it is fantastic to be around!
Outside of the gym I enjoy reading, practicing yoga, and going hiking in the Rockies. I have spent the last couple of years at the University of Calgary, completing my Undergraduate in Psychology, and I’m now spending my last year in the Werkland Education program finishing my Education Degree.
Please feel free to come and say hi, if you see me at the gym! I’m always open to questions or even just chats and laughs. Cheers to the opening year of KIN!
