Fletcher began coaching gymnastics 30 years ago. Her passion for the sport resulted in her being named the national
stream coach of the year in 2006, which goes to the coach who has had the most success with its national level gymnasts. Fletcher received Gymnastics BC’s Member of Distinction award in 2010 and the organization also presented her with a life member award in 2013. She was also the team director for Canada’s gymnastic team that finished fifth at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Marrello’s boys soccer squads won six provincial titles and went to the national championships four times winning
twice. His 2006 Burnaby Royals were inducted into the Burnaby Sports Hall of Fame in 2009. He was named B.C. youth coach of the year in 2002. Several of Marrello’s charges have made national youth teams with five of them going on to play professional soccer. His Burnaby Girls Titans squad which he coached for three years also won two provincial titles and went to two national finals where they took the sliver medal. Marrello’s coaching exploits aren’t limited to the soccer pitch but the wrestling mat as well coaching many provincial and national champions including Tom Petryshen, who wrestled in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, and John Tenta, a world junior champion in 1985
