Roosevelt High School Gymnastics Program
Coach Bettie was a high school gymnast at Cascade High School in Everett WA and has continued involvement with gymnastics and dance over the last 30 years coaching everything from club teams to volunteering on military posts to provide gymnastics and dance classes for family service centers. Coach Bettie credits her technical side of coaching to the time spent coaching for Bulgarian Olympian Stoyan Deltchev and his partner Aneta Damianova, and Soviet Gymnasts Oleg and Lena Dimitriev. Coach Kibala learned importance of maintaining the joy of gymnastics from her high school days with Coach Dinnetz and Club coach Derick Moellenbeck. After 20 years of living in Reno NV coach Bettie says it was a happy accident that she ended up volunteering at Roosevelt High School coaching the Roughriders.
