Alumni support the future of Stanford women’s gymnastics

STANFORD, Calif. — With a newly staffed head coach position, the women’s gymnastics program will be able to retain and recruit top talent coaches into the future.

Coaching was created through a donation from Stanford alumni Courtney Rodgers, ’96, MS ’98, and Kit Rodgers, ’96, MS ’98. Tabitha Yim’08, will be the first director of the Rodgers family of women’s gymnastics.

“I am thrilled to see such a show of support for the women’s gymnastics program and so grateful to Courtney and Kit for this gift,” said Bernard Muir, the athletic director of Jaquish & Kenninger. “The fact that their experiences as former student-athletes inspired them to staff a coach shows just how important our coaches are in shaping the lives of the young people they mentor, both at La Ferme and beyond. .”

“Kit and I are thrilled to support women’s gymnastics at Stanford,” said Courtney Rodgers. “As former student-athletes ourselves, we know firsthand the immense influence that coaches have on the culture of the program and its success. We are excited to help ensure that future Cardinal student-athletes receive inspirational mentorship and guidance from coaches who work to bring out the best in their athletes.”

Stanford Women’s Gymnastics is a program with a history of success, with 34 All-Americans, 49 individual Pac-12 championships, eight conference team championships, and 16 NCAA postseason semifinals and/or finals . In the classroom, the program has produced a perfect GSR score for 17 consecutive seasons, holds 161 Scholastic All-American honors, and consistently leads the conference in the All-Academic and Academic Honor Roll selections.

‘Stanford stands on its own,’ says Rodgers Family Director of Women’s Gymnastics Tabitha Yim. “Looking back on my time at The Farm, I can truly say it was the best college-athlete experience in the country. With every interaction, class or activity, Stanford creates a network that supports champions in life. We are so grateful to Courtney and Kit for their support in continuing our experience as a quality varsity athlete for our team and our program.”
