MIss Alyssa's Bio
Alyssa first fell in love with the sport of baton twirling at the age of 8, where she picked up a baton for the first time and never looked back. Taking recreational classes at the Indus Rec. Centre after her previous dance teacher had moved away, she eagerly came to class always wanting to learn something new. During this first year of twirling she performed in the Calgary Stampede Pre-Parade where she also received the “Practice Award” taking home her first trophy. Within her second year of the recreational classes, she was able to watch a competition in Airdire, Alberta and instantly knew this is something that she wanted to be a part of. Going Competitive at the age of 11, Alyssa advanced quickly through the beginner levels of competitive baton. She holds multiple provincial, national and international titles, including being a bronze medalist for team Canada in 3-baton and artistic pair and continues to compete with more than a decade of experience, as well as coach and mentor younger athletes who share the love for the sport. Miss Alyssa is very passionate in learning and education and holds a diploma in Chemical Laboratory Technology. In 2014, she became the Alberta Athletes Representative, a position still held today. She has also completed her L1 and L2 coaches training, and M3 judges training under the Canadian Baton Twirling Federation. Looking for a new challenge, Alyssa founded Remix Baton Club to which she is incredibly dedicated to and the world of baton.

MISS TESSA'S BIO
Tessa started baton twirling when she was 7 years old and has continued ever since.
She is a provincial and national titleholder from previous years to the present. She also
competed at Twirl Mania, an international competition and finished in 5th place. Tessa has
competed in the sport off and on over the years but her love for it never changed. She has
decided to pursue coaching in the hope to spread the scope of baton twirling and share how
amazing it truly is. Tessa first started baton in Airdrie Alberta, with a highly competitive team
and became very competitive her self. Not in the matter of winning but beating her personal
bests, this is the drive she wants to encourage younger athletes to have not just baton but everything they do in life. Tessa has taken this drive further and will be attending Mount Royal University in the fall. and as always, returned to the one thing she loves - baton twirling.
