On the BALANCE Beam with … Mikayla Riley
All About Me:
I currently live in Mt Martha and coach at the Mornington Gymnastics Club, where I coach Levels 2B and 5B. I have been coaching there for 9 years, but will be moving to Ringwood later this year, which is why I came to BALANCE.
I am currently completing the Level 2 Coaching Course, and I am also an Advanced WAG Judge.
I studied a Bachelor of Science with a major in Psychology at Monash University part time for 5 years, but I am taking a break at the moment to coach more hours at the gym.
What do You Do at BALANCE?
I am coaching the new 1A group, Kinder Flippers (Wednesday & Friday), Tumblebears (Wednesday), and the 2B group (Friday).
