Competitive Gymnastics Teams

The Area’s Premiere Gymnastics Teams

Salem boasts the area’s premiere girl’s team, with girls competing through the National Level. Over the years, Salem has gained respect as one of the top teams in the Carolinas. Under the direction of Region 8 Hall of Fame Coach Kenny Morphis, our athletes have taken gold at Nationals 14 times and have represented the USA on National and International Teams. Over two dozen athletes have continued gymnastics on college scholarships – see our Wall of Fame!

Competitive gymnastics teaches the ultimate in goal setting, poise, and personal excellence. Emphasis is on achieving your own personal best and sportsmanship, balancing a quality of life both in and out of the gym.

Boy’s Team at Salem

In the 1980’s and early 1990’s, Salem had a strong boy’s team under the tutelage of Bob Kohut.  The boy’s team’s Super Star was Chris Young, who won National Gold in his Salem uniform.  After graduation, Chris continued his career on the USA National Team where he won a silver at the World Championships and competed in the 2000 Olympic Trials.  In 2018 Chris returned home to Salem where he rapidly built a growing, thriving, boy’s team. Current members include Robert Banks, 2021 Level 10 National High Bar Champion!
