I was taken along to a 'bring a friend' night at the age of 8 and have stuck with calisthenics ever since. I competed at Box Hill Calisthenics Club for 15 years before moving to Ellanda Calisthenics College in 2013.
I have assisted with most sections throughout the years. My time at Ellanda, I've spent assisting the Juniors and Masters sections and competing as a Senior. I have completed my Cadet and Level 1 course and am looking forward to becoming a qualified Level 1 coach in 2019!
I love watching students having fun, making new friendships, developing their skills and performing on stage. I still love our sport as much as I did over 20 years ago and enjoy sharing that love and passion with our teams.
EMMA TULLY & ROSIE PETERS
SUBBIES CO - COACHES
I was introduced to the wonderful world of calisthenics at the age of 3 and can't thank my Mum enough. I have competed as a Tinie at Windsor Calisthenics, a Subbie, Junior and Inter at Laurieton Calisthenics, and now a senior at Ellanda.
Calisthenics has certainly allowed me to develop my confidence and social skills, but most importantly my passion to work as part of a team.
I have assisted with the Tinies and Inters sections for many years, however my proudest moment is being appointed head coach of the Ellanda Tinies in 2018. Being apart of a young ones calisthenics career and watching them grow is certainly the most rewarding.
I began calisthenics in 2003 as a Subbie at Ellanda and have competed every year since.
I’ve assisted Subbies for many years before moving to Juniors in 2018. In 2016 I sat my Grade 3 exam and have since gone onto completing my Cadet and Level 1 course.
I’m very excited to return to Subbies in 2019 as a co-coach with Rosie. I’m looking forward to another great year of sharing my passion for calisthenics and helping the girls learn and grow.
PRINCIPLE, JUNIOR, INTER & SENIOR COACH
Before you can achieve, you must believe
I began my calisthenics career at the age of 3 at a little club located in Pascoe Vale called St Andrews, when they closed I moved with my coaches to Sunbury School of Calisthenics, as a senior I moved to Robynmore where I competed for many years before relocating to the other side of town.
I opened Ellanda in 2002. I continue to coach and love the sport of calisthenics, only now, I get to share my passion with my own students, I love watching them learn and develop.
It gives me great pleasure in presenting my students at competitions each year, watching them compete makes me very proud.
