The Halton Gymnastics Club was founded in 1973, and in 1975 had a head coaching vacancy. After a lengthy search, Janet Campbell was hired in 1977. Although she had no experience at running a club, Janet was a previous gymnast and had a determination to succeed.

The club started with 12 competitive gymnasts and 30 recreational participants and programs were held at E.C. Drury High School. With Janet’s vision, the club was molded into its present-day success, with 55 competitive gymnasts and over 1,100 recreational participants.

Upon her retirement, she was awarded an Honorary Life Membership in the Ontario Gymnastics Federation. The Federation also recognized the Milton Springers Gymnastics Club as the “Club of the Year” in 2006 out of 195 clubs in Ontario.

In 2007, Janet stepped down as head coach of the Springers.
