Mikayla Moore- June 2014
Wildfire Gymnastics would like to honor Coach Mikayla as the June “Coach of the Month.” Mikayla has been coaching at Wildfire for the past three years. During this time she has grown into a very popular preschool coach. She loves working with the kids at Wildfire because she says they are so creative – “they say and do the funniest things. “
Mikayla is a student at Irvine Valley College. Her plans are to transfer to a four-year university in fall 2015 to major in animal biology with an emphasis in behavioral sciences.
In recent months Mikayla has been one of our “go to” staff members for help with parent night out, annual sleepover, tumbling clinics, open gyms and whatever else she is needed for. She gives of herself in a quiet, humble way with a smile.
Mikayla’s hobbies include a love for reading. She has a second part time with Pyro Spectacular where she has been trained to set off fireworks. She will be doing several shows over the July 4th weekend.
Mikayla received formal gymnastics training as a child and competed a few years as a compulsory gymnast, but her love of the ice exceeded the fun of tumbling and she became a competitive figure skater for 14 years. Nine of those years she competed in the “singles” category and the last 5 she competed in synchronized figure skating where she competed each year at the national level and represented her club and the USA in international competitions in Hungary and Austria.
A little known fact about Mikayla, is that she is published in Saddleback College’s Literary Journal
Congratulations to Coach Mikayla for her successes in many aspects of her life.
