Ashleigh Dale joins our Delta Brisbane team! We are so lucky to have Ashleigh with us on a full time basis as both a Coach and in our Member Services Team.
Ashleigh brings a wide range of experience to her role at Delta! She is an Intermediate WAG Coach and also holds her AustSwim qualifications as a Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety. She is currently completing a Bachelor of Psych Science Majoring in Developmental Psychology.
Having done gymnastics as a child, Ashleigh has followed gymnastics as a spectator her whole life. She has been coaching for five years as a swim coach for infants, all the way through to squad level swimmers. It was here Ashleigh found her love of coaching and helping mould children.
Six months ago, Ashleigh decided to try her hand at gymnastics coaching and has found something she is truly passionate about! She also does adult gymnastics herself and keeps herself current to make sure she has an excellent understanding of the things she is coaching.
Ashleigh loves the discipline and commitment required to achieve the highest levels of gymnastics. She loves how a gymnast can make one of the most physically demanding skills in the world, look beautiful. Ashleigh loves the community gymnastics provides for young people as they grow in the sport.
Most fulfilling as a Coach for Ash is just seeing her gymnasts smile when they finally nail something they’ve been working on for months. “Knowing I helped them get there is achievement enough for me!”
