Meet Allison Kieley, New Director of Sport Development!

 

Key Log Rolling® has some exciting news!  The sport of log rolling is growing all around the country and we're making waves in the aquatic sports scene. After six years of product, program and athlete development, we're ready to take the next step in growing the sport.

We are happy to announce that Allison Kieley has joined Key Log Rolling® as Director of Sport Development. In this new role, Allison will create a model for competitive tournaments for the sport of aquatic log rolling. Her focus on competition development is a groundbreaking move for this 125 year-old historic sport.

Allison, of Wayzata, Minnesota, has a background in recreational programming, event management and adventurous living. Her introduction to Key Log Rolling began at YMCA Camp Warren in northern Minnesota and she has continued to gain log rolling experience in the Minneapolis Log Rolling Club. She recently competed in her first log rolling tournament to get a taste of the world of competitive log rolling!
.
Allison will be focusing on two Key Log Rolling® initiatives: the Federation of International Log Rolling (FILR) and the United States Aquatics Log Rolling Organization (aka USA LOG ROLLING). The initiatives will grow a strong membership base and include benefits to a worldwide ranking system, standardized Key Log competition equipment, rules and regulations, and sanctioning guidelines.  She will also be working on the 2018 Key Log Rolling Collegiate Tournament Series, hosted at UT-Dallas, Rutgers, Purdue, and UCLA. 
 
The vision of Key Log Rolling has remained consistent over the past six years — to develop the sport to Olympic status. We know it will take time but, as log rollers, we’re accustomed to taking many small steps at a time.  The Key Log® finally gives the sport an opportunity with mainstream access, and Allison's development efforts are another step in the right direction.
 
Thank you for being a part of this adventure!  We’re looking forward to working with programs and the public to introduce the excitement of competitive log rolling. Keep an eye out for tournament updates, sport development opportunities and other Key Log Rolling news from Allison in the upcoming weeks.
