Meet The Team

Founders, Directors and Coaches

PowerEd was founded in 2019 by Terri Kalis, Aimee Barrett-Theron and Nicky Steel. All 3 share a common passion: to help kids move better so they experience fewer injuries and grow up feeling confident and with a love for being active.

The Team: Team Members

Our Coaching Team

All our coaches share our passion to help kids enjoy being physically active. Expertise is important to us so all PowerEd head coaches (who lead a session) are qualified in physiotherapy, biokinetics or sports/exercise coaching . Our assistant coaches have extensive experience in physical activity training or personally.
