CAQI would like to extend our deepest congratulations to our 2021 CAQI Coach Of The Year!

Michele Pink

Please join us in celebrating this amazing achievement with her!

A work from Michele: With so many great coaches in Qld, it is an honour to be named CAQI Queensland Coach of the Year. 
Your peers' recognition is very rewarding, especially during 2020, which challenged us in ways we could never have imagined. 
My hat goes off to all coaches Australia wide who worked so hard to keep the sport of calisthenics alive, who pushed themselves out of their comfort zone, teaching calisthenics in ways we have never seen before, but most of all keeping our participants engaged in this wonderful sport. 

A huge thank you to the Rosemore Committee and Coaches, who have backed me the whole way and a big thank you to Jen Phillips, who in the beginning took a big leap of faith with me. 
Thank you to Sue Harding, mentor, sister and friend; Rosemore wouldn't be where it is today without your continual guidance. 
Thank you to Meg Graham and Kylie Simpson, who have helped steer the ship in the right direction. 
I am forever grateful for your ongoing support, guidance and dedication. 
Lastly, a massive thank you to my husband and children, who have supported my journey. At times it hasn't been easy, but they have always been there for me.

I find it hard to choose one favourite memory as the whole season has been a blast! Although COVID-19 hit, Miss Kayla supporting me from back in Adelaide and Miss Lorindaโ€™s hilarious moments at practice had made this season fun!

I want to thank multiple people in my life for their support. My Grammy and my Nanna back in Adelaide and my Nanny who has passed away who always loved to watch me dance. They have always encouraged and been there for me. I especially want to thank my Mum who worked so hard on all our costumes to make it real and she is always there for me.

A.Watt is an absolute delight to coach, nothing is ever too hard! If at first she doesnโ€™t succeed, A.Watt will try, try and try again until whatever we are working on looks like a masterpiece. Weโ€™ve had a lot of fun working together and I couldnโ€™t be prouder of this beautiful dancer.

My favourite memory of the SDG season - well I have two! One is Sunday morning classes and giggling with my coach Michele as we choreographed this item. The second is the feeling coming off stage at the first competition - after 19 years break from soloโ€™s it was exhilarating.

I would like to thank Michele Pink for her guidance, support and effort, both in this solo and in Rosemore in general! I would also like to thank my family (particularly Lauz, Ben and Mum and dad) for always supporting me in my endeavours, from cheering on in the crowd to bringing coffee and dinner it is all appreciated!

Jen is one of the hardest workers I have ever coached. No matter how tired, busy or unwell she is, she shows up to training and practices like itโ€™s a performance. We have heaps of fun and laughs together, she is a delight to coach.

Our favourite memory was the last extra Sunday training before states, Miss Lorinda was working with us on our character/partner work, expressions and connecting with each other. Not sure how effective this lesson was as we spent majority of the class rolling on the floor with laughter!

A.Anseline-Manton & J.Clements are a great duo to work with, their advanced skills made choreographing so exciting with trying new tricks & incorporating intricate sequences. The pair work very well together and have formed a great friendship through training. Weโ€™ve all had lots of laughs and fun putting this routine together. Was simply magical!
