The benefits of gymnastics training can be tremendous and endless alike. Most importantly, they don’t have to be exclusive to the sport itself when the proper philosophies and methods are in place. We pride ourselves on developing not only great athletes, but great people. Our goal at Olympica Gymnastics is to improve the athleti-cism, confidence, and self-esteem of every student, all through an educational experience that is optimal for each unique student. And without ever sacrificing quality, the cost of the program will always be kept at a level that is affordable to the majority of the families in the communities that we serve.
Skills for Sport. Lessons for Life.
The sport of gymnastics is unique, as is each child in their strengths, challenges, personalities, and optimal process of learning and progressing through it. We believe a coaching staff should both understand and reflect this. With literally centuries of combined gymnastics experience across our selectively curated staff, we offer an experience to local families that is not only of the highest standard and expertise in the sports, but one that is best molded and matched to each individual student.

Kaylee was a well-decorated Level 10 gymnast who trained at the Elite level with many knowledgeable coaches from around the world. She began assistant coaching at 16 years old as a level 10 gymnast and became a developmental team coach at 18. She has now been a compulsory/optional team coach for four years. She fell in love with the sport at the age of two and her passion continues to this day. Kaylee firmly believes that every child deserves a champion–an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be. She finds herself most inspired by the balance beam. It takes a massive amount of courage to get up and perform an artistic and dynamic routine on 4 inches. Kaylee enjoys coaching all levels, but her favorite, which she also finds most challenging, would be the compulsory team levels 3-5. The most rewarding thing in her professional career has been watching young athletes develop into accomplished well-rounded champions, not only in skill level, but also in character development.
Clare discovered the sport of gymnastics at age 6 and has been involved ever since. At age 15 Clare began coaching and now has almost 10 years of experience in a variety of levels ranging from preschool to competitive programs. This is Clare’s third year coaching competitive team at Olympica and discovered a true love for coaching Optional Uneven Bars. Clare describes the fast paced setting of bars as a true testament to both mental and physical toughness, incorporating elements of extreme strength with a quiet beauty that require both power and flexibility. She is most inspired by the infectious motivation that the girls find in everyday successes after feeling their hard work pay off. Clare is also currently a student and plans to attend CSU Long Beach where she will major in Human Development with a minor in Psychology. After receiving her Bachelor’s, Clare plans to pursue a Master’s degree in School/Clinical Counseling and continue working with children.
Tracey is a “jill-of-all-trades” at Olympica! She has been coaching recreational gymnastic of all ages, toddlers to teens since 1998, and at Olympica since 2001. One of her favorite parts of the job is being a tot’s first experience with a teacher, not only the sport of gymnastics, but in any structured learning environment for many. Tracey says, “I love to watch families grow, while they watch me grow old!” She has also been the birthday party coordinator for 12 years with Olympica and loves being a part of making memories for families and friends while introducing gymnastics to so many children who had yet to experience it. Over the last two years, Tracey has also begun working with special needs children at Olympica in a one-on-one setting, which has been as great an experience for her as it has been her students, an done she feels very fortunate to have. Much of Tracey’s time at Olympica is spent interacting with parents as well, in her role as Accounts Manager and Office Supervisor!
