Kitimat Dynamic Gymnastics
Kitimat Dynamics Gymnastics Club (KDGC) is pleased to welcome new Head Coach Bill Tyrwhitt and his 14 year old son Michael, who have come to us from Lloydminster, Alberta. Bill started gymnastics at the age of 12 and brings with him 24 years of coaching experience. He has coached men's and women's gymnastics and trampoline. He has coached many high performance athletes at Provincial and National levels.
Former Head Coach, Angela Pitzel, has decided to take on the role of Assistant Coach to give her more time with her young family. Bill has spent the summer working with the KDGC gymnasts and is really impressed with how hard working and talented the kids are. He brings the unique experience of watching and working with some of the top gymnasts in the world. Before coaching, he was a competitive gymnast, diver, tri-athlete and runner and has brought a very positive attitude with him. He believes in the philosophy of "Healthy Body, Healthy Mind" and firmly believes that gymnastics is one of the best sports for the all-around development of our children. In Bill's words, "I believe in putting the child ahead of performance, and that dreams come true with hard work and dedication".
Both Bill and Michael are loving Kitimat and are avid fishermen, spending time exploring the river and looking forward to more time on the channel.
Bill is excited about the new gymnastics season and is hoping to welcome new gymnasts to the club. The KDGC has many recreational and competitive classes that welcome children of all ages and abilities. Registration for Fall classes will be Saturday, September 12th from 10am until 2pm at Riverlodge. If you are interested in learning more about the classes, please give the KDGC a call at 632-6733.
