Angel Crossman’s two daughters trained at the Burlington Gymnastics Club and Angel became a strong volunteer not only for the BGC but also within our Ontario gymnastics community. She has served as a board member for the BGC since 1987 (33 years) and was president for six years. She also served on the then “Central Region Gymnastics Committee” for five years, acting as Treasurer for four.
Within BGC she has acted as chairman of several of our board standing committees and has rewritten our club constitution. She was an original writer of the club’s policies and procedures, and most recently was in charge of their complete revision which was a four-year project.
Her other organizational skills were directed to the planning of gymnastics competitions. She has worked on and chaired organizing committees for all levels of gymnastics competitions which include numerous qualifiers, Provincial Championships, National Championships as well as the local Burlington Gymnastics Club Spring Cup. It should be especially noted that she was Co-Meet Director of the 1990 Provincial Championships, member of the organizing committee for the 1998 Canadians in Hamilton and hosting chair of the Canadians in both 2004 (Mississauga) and 2009 (Hamilton). In addition, Angel volunteered at the 2000 Gym Challenge in Mississauga and the 1994 and 1995 Soapberry and Subway World Gymnastics Challenge in Hamilton.
Continuing in the role of tireless volunteer, Angel has been a member of the Gymnastics Ontario Board of Directors from 1997 to the present day (23 years) having served as President for six years. She has served on the Gymnastics Ontario Policy and Procedures Committee as well as on the Human Resources Committee for the past 12 years.
