Tanis Brown January’s Mom of the Month, Tanis Brown of Long Sault, has been involved in a variety of sports in a variety of roles. She and her husband, Barry, are busy keeping their three children, Avery (14), Kyle (12), and Camden (2) active and engaged in athletics. Tanis is a fundraiser and is often part of team management. She has organized and participated in Casino Nights, bottle drives, raffles, and pumpkin sales, to name a few activities. “Whatever needs to be done, I’ll do,” she says. She has done a lot of work in South Stormont, where both Avery and Kyle got their starts in hockey, and where her husband has coached both older kids. Tanis has since supported Avery as a player for the Cornwall Typhoons when her daughter moved to that team, and has been on the bench as a trainer. Kyle has become heavily involved in baseball, and frequently trains in Quebec, so Tanis is often on the road. Her own background in sports includes softball and swimming; including earning her (water) wings as a lifeguard. As for young Camden, at 2 years of age, she’s already been on skates in the Long Sault Arena, and if her father has his way, she’ll be a hockey player like her big sister. “But she’s quite the little dancer,” explains Tanis. “So, we’ll see what happens.”
