Carleigh Dempsey- Assistant Head Coach - Level 6-10

Assistant Head Coach Level 7-9

I started gymnastics when we moved to Puyallup at 4-1/2 years old. I competed the compulsory levels at the Mel Korum YMCA, and then, moved over to Grace to compete optionals. I have been coaching for 13 years now, ranging from pre-school gymnastics to level 10. Throughout my career, I have coached multiple event and all-around state/regional champions and locked in two state team titles in a row...all while coaching with Kevin! I'd say we are a pretty good duo! When I was younger I always said I was going to be a school teacher. As I got older, I thought I was going to become an accountant, but when I started coaching, nothing else interested me anymore. I knew I wanted to continue coaching. It is so much more than a job to me...It's my PASSION! I absolutely love working with young athletes who are determined to fight even through the hard times this sport always brings. I love that I can be a positive influence and role model for each girl I coach. It's extremely rewarding. When I'm not in the gym, my time is spent with my husband, Kegan, my son, Owen, our dog, Cooper, Jesus and the rest of our family and friends. We are expecting baby boy #2 in January so our lives are going to get even crazier and busier J Looking forward to a great season. GO GRACE!
