The Passing of Kyler Reddick
(Coach Carey's Son -Chicago Park District)

Kyler L. Reddick, age 3, of Chicago, Illinois passed away on November 21, 2014 under the loving care of his family. Kyler was born June 17, 2011, in Chicago, Illinois to Carey and Rebecca (Pollok) Reddick.

Kyler’s smile could light up a room, his laugh was infectious. He brought so much joy to so many people, even to those he never met. He loved life, he loved eating the air, feeling the rain and snow on his face. He was a super trooper and he never stopped fighting. Kyler also loved cars, trains, pizza parties, guacamole and chips, Disney movies and Henry Huggle monster.
Funeral visitation to honor the life of Kyler L. Reddick was held Monday, November 24th, 2014 and Funeral Service will be held Tuesday, November 25th, 2014 10 A.M. at The Elms Funeral Home, 7600 W. Grand Ave. (North on 76th Ave.), Elmwood Park.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to St. Baldrick’s Foundation, or Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation,

In case you missed it last week, USA Gymnastics presented a webiner on concussions with special guest Dr. David Kruse that everyone could benefit from.  If you have time to watch it and want to share it with your membership, you can find it at

INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 2, 2014 – As part of the organization’s ongoing efforts to promote a safe environment for athletes, USA Gymnastics has strengthened its policy regarding athlete participation in USA Gymnastics-sanctioned events. Effective Sept. 15, 2014, all athlete members must be affiliated with a USA Gymnastics member club to participate in USA Gymnastics-sanctioned events.
As of Sept. 15, 2014, unaffiliated athletes may no longer compete in USA Gymnastics-sanctioned events. All athletes participating in USA Gymnastics-sanctioned events must be affiliated with a USA Gymnastics member club. Only member clubs may apply for membership in USA Gymnastics on behalf of an athlete and/or register a team of athletes into sanctioned events. All member clubs agree to follow a number of registration requirements, including implementing recommendations from the Participant Welfare Policy; certifying that no persons permanently ineligible for USA Gymnastics membership – which includes convicted sex offenders and/or persons on the permanently ineligible for membership list – are or will be associated with the club or its activities in any way during the club’s membership period; and employing at least one staff member who holds a current, certified professional membership (or a certified instructor for a recreational facility).
