Dana Lainchbury Richards

Head Coach

Email: headcoach@ddgc.ca

Dana was born and raised on Vancouver Island, and has been involved in the sport of gymnastics for over 25 years. She is currently an NCCP Level 3 certified coach in both Women's Artistic Gymnastics and Trampoline Gymnastics. She began in the sport as an athlete, where she reached the National Open level, and pursued coaching so that she could share her love and expertise of the sport. In recent years, she has been a member of Gymnastics BC as a coach, a chaperone, and a Certified Athletic Therapist. She currently sits on the Women's Technical Committee at Gymnastics BC where she helps to establish a successful Women's Artistic Gymnastics program. As a Certified Athletic Therapist, she looks to evidence-based research when she can to implement into programming and training to ensure athletes have the best opportunity for success. In 2017, she was a member of Canada's medical team at the FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in Montreal. Outside of the gym Dana likes to stay active herself, often hiking, trail running, or resistance training. She enjoys the outdoors, spending time with her family and her two dogs (Marley and Willow). One of her favourite quotes is "Building champions of life through sport." - Valorie Condos Field
