Aforza Alumni

2017 Gage Kingsmith

Proud Alumni, Gage Kingsmith, trained for eight years at Aforza, starting his competitive tennis career at age 9. He looks back fondly at this time and will never forget the many memories, friends and teammates he made over the years of travelling and competing.

About his experience, Gage says, “It was an unbelievable experience where I was able to learn, improve and enjoy all of my time as a player. Being always fully supported by all the amazing coaches who helped me throughout my whole career. They not only pushed me to be the best player I could become, as a coach should, but became my friends along the way. I cannot speak highly enough about my experience and wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

Some of Gage’s most notable tennis achievements include being the second ranked junior in Alberta and 42 ranked junior in all of Canada. Gage’s focus and dedication followed him as he went on to attend the University of Eastern Illinois and completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Finance with a 4.0 GPA. All while on the dean’s list and receiving the Ohio Valley Conference academic medal of honour all four years. Incredible! Gage now works as an Investment Analyst at a firm here in Calgary and continues to enjoy tennis when he can find time in his busy schedule.
