My name is Guylaine Girard and as a coach and I have been coaching athletes for 25 years, mainly in ultimate (frisbee) and gymnastics. I have a university degree in high level coaching and a Level 4 NCCP (international level). In 2012, I established a collective between the women’s competitive ultimate teams in Montreal, to improve communication between the teams and give them the means to learn from one another. Within this program, many women have developed their leadership skills in their roles as managers, captains or trainers. As an athlete and captain, I won the gold medal with my team in the ultimate world championships in Italy in 2014. In 2016, I was head coach of AUDL’s Montreal Royal, a semi-professional ultimate team. Over time, I have developed a specialization in leading athletes and coaches toward change and transforming teams into very effective units. Over the last 15 years, I have helped coaches to improve their communication and relationships with their athletes and become the best leaders they can be.
