Biography for Kim Alexander
While attending Stirling High School, Kim started drummies and inevitably fell in love with this wonderful sport. They spent many hours on the practice field and made many sacrifices, but they always had so much fun together and their hard work always paid off.
“I have many wonderful memories from those five years, the highlight would have to be winning nationals in 1995 & 1997. I still use so many of the skills this sport teaches you today”.
After school, Kim assisted AW Barnes on a part time basis. Unfortunately after a while there were no schools in the Eastern Cape that offered drummies as a sport. In 2016, Kim found out that her old primary school, Gonubie Primary, had started a majorette squad and she quickly became an assistant coach for their team.
In 2018 Kim coached Lilyfontein High which was the first high school squad in the province in 18 years. In 2019, Kim had taken up the role of Development Officer for the Eastern Cape; “I would like to see the sport grow in the province and also have the skills level of our existing teams improve”. In 2017, Kim passed both the Scoresheet and Penalty Adjudicator Exams and is looking forward to being a Penalty Judge this year.
