” The Life and Times of Kelly Mock” Kelly started gymnastics at Harry Ainlay High School, with no other aspirations than to learn a back handspring. Subsequently, after having mastered the skill, he went on to become “High School Provincial Open Champion”. Kelly began his coaching career at the Capital City Gymnastics Club and at his alma mater, the Harry Ainlay High School. From there, he went on to run the MAG program at Ortona, U o A, Leduc Kanata, and WAG / MAG at Altadore. In 1998 moved to Whitehorse, Yukon to become the Technical Director for the territory as well as Head Coach for the Polarettes Gymnastics Club. Kelly spent over a decade there and had his WAG athletes represent the Yukon at the Canada Games. He also had WAG and MAG athletes at Nationals and Westerns, where they achieved gold and all-around medals. Kelly received a Government of Yukon appointed position, to the High Performance Athlete / Coach Funding Committee as well as the Yukon Recreation Advisory Committee.

Kelly was on the bid committee for the 2007 Canada Winter Games and served as Technical Chair, as well as the Head Coach for the first-ever Yukon WAG team to the CWG. He moved with his wife to Canmore in 2008 and started building the MAG program at CIGC, with only 2 male competitive athletes upon his arrival. We are proud that Kelly has recently been appointed to the National Judges Education Committee and is actively involved in judging at a national and international level. Kelly has 2 daughters, 6 & 8 and they spend most of their family time in the out doors – in hiking boots, on skis or 2 wheels.
