Janet Jones Awarded Lil Babineau Club Builder Award

Janet Jones is the epitome of a Gymnastics Ontario Club Builder.  Gymtrix is celebrating 20 years and Janet has been with the club virtually from the start.  Although her girls are grown and retired from gym, Janet is still involved, most recently as our assistant meet director for the 20th Anniversary Sunshine Classic.

In addition to having been a driving force behind the Sunshine Classic for almost two decades, this extraordinary woman is multi talented and fiercely loyal.  In the early days, Janet could be found in the Gymtrix office becoming an expert in everything from registrations to measuring kids for team uniforms.  Janet was also at the helm of the Booster Club fund-raisers for many years.  In 2010 she offered up her family garage in order for the club to store equipment while renovations on the new facility were taking place.  She also acted as our travel agent extraordinaire, always one step ahead, ensuring hotel rooms were reserved.

For so many years, Janet has been the glue that has kept us together.  She has taken on virtually every role in the club … except coaching
