ACRO Dev – Most Improved Acrobat 2018
Kate Strickland
Coaches say “Kate has been doing acro here for a few years now, but this year something was different. She had a fire in her belly, and gave it all she had. There were many challenges along the way, but there was no way that would stop her. She set out her goals, wanting to be able to do a full handstand, handstand forward roll and many other skills, and looking back on the year, she had achieved all her yearly goals by July. One thing that stands out about Kate is her dedication, determination but also her ability to laugh at herself. She many not be the most naturally strong kid, but she went from holding a chin up at the start of the year for 3 seconds to being able to hold chin up for 36 seconds by the end of year. As coaches, we love to highlight how important it is to just do your best and practice. Kate certainly had some falls, and frustrations along the way, but by laughing at herself when she fell and always getting back is what we are most proud of. She sets an excellent example for the younger kids in the squad and we know she will achieve great things in the years to come. Keep up your awesome work.”
