Congratulations Camryn Nelson!

The 2018 Auburn Elite National Qualifier was held May 24-26 in Puyallup, Washington. Here Camryn competed 2 days doing her compulsory routines first and another day competed optional routines. Her goal was to achieve all around totals (AA) 32.00 for compulsory & 46.00 for optional which she more than surpassed and brought home many gold medals.

Camryn not only won her age division but had the highest AA in both the Hopes divisions for compulsory competition AND optionals!

What is the Hopes program?

“The USA Gymnastics “Elite” program is a fast-track, highly intense progression system designed to produce champions… The Hopes program is considered the starting gate for athletes interested in getting their foot in that program!  “Hopes” is a modified Pre-Elite program dedicated to gymnasts, ages 10-13.

The HOPES program was initiated in the 2006 season and was a tremendous success. Since, it has been a wonderful asset for some of our countries most aspiring talent.”
