Linda Empringham Presented with Recreation Coach of the Year Award

Linda Empringham has been an instrumental part of Trillium Gymnastics for over 25 years, sharing her passion for the sport of gymnastics with Kingston’s youth.  In her 15+ years as Recreational Director she has developed successful kindernastics, recreational and advanced recreation programming for both boys and girls of all ages and abilities.

Linda takes care of administrative duties associated with Trillium’s recreational programs and ensures they offer a positive experience for participants.  She wholeheartedly believes in her athletes’ abilities and strongly advocates for their progression into competitive programs.

She takes care of all of her coaching staff as if they were her own children and mentors coaches young and old.  She has supported many individuals on their gymnastics journey as they progress through recreational and/or competitive programs and go on to become coaches.  She is instrumental in coaching development, organizing courses for her coaches to progress in their own coaching careers.  She cares for the well-being of her staff both inside and outside the gym.

We are fortunate to have such a caring, dedicated, hard working, positive individual that cares so much about the gym and its members.  She has made a lasting difference in the lives of gymnasts, coaches and families and we are so grateful to have her in our lives.
