Klara Miller leaves a mark on gymnastics in Saskatchewan before retirement 

After a dedicated 55 years in Saskatchewan’s amateur sport system, Klara Miller has announced her retirement from her role as Gymnastics Saskatchewan’s long-standing CEO.  

Her commitment to sport began in 1969, when Miller took on the role of YWCA Limberettes’ Gym Club head coach. After almost a decade with that program, she moved on to pursue a position with Queen City Gym Club. For seven years, she explored various roles within the club which included a continued pursuit of her coaching career as well as Program and Facility Director 

In 1971, Miller took on the role of Provincial and National 4 Gymnastics Judge, committing extra time to her passion for gymnastics. 

Following her time with gymnastics, Miller transitioned to work as the CEO of Water Polo Saskatchewan, where she remained for eight years. During her time with Water Polo Saskatchewan, Miller joined the Regina Optimist Dolphins Swim Club’s board as president, until 1994 when she became president of Regina’s Water Polo Association board. Between 1994 and 2006, she was also the Vice President of Water Polo Canada. 

In the final step of her career, Miller was hired as Gymnastics Saskatchewan’s CEO, where she remained for 30 outstanding years. She has led her career with a passion for sport, expressing gratitude to the various coaches, clubs, judges, staff and volunteers who have been a part of her journey. 

The feeling is mutual and Miller’s legacy will be felt for years to come, as noted by Saskatchewan Gymnastics Board Chair, Dale Reed in a media release announcing Miller’s retirement. 

“Her contributions to the sport of gymnastics and amateur sport in general in Saskatchewan are immeasurable and leave a lasting mark on sport in the province and beyond. Gymnastics is a vibrant sport in Saskatchewan, due in large part to her dedicated services through the years.” 

Sask Sport would like to congratulate CEO Klara Miller on her 55 years of achievements, guidance, passion and support. We wish you all the best in retirement and any future involvement with the sporting community!
