Coach’s Note:  Courtney is a  tricks kid and loves to learn new skills. When it’s time to compete, she can step it up and hit.  She is very competitive and likes to do well.  She’s fun, outgoing, and talkative and a great teammate to her peers. Courtney does well with honest evaluations and takes criticism well without becoming emotional.
