Melanie Ann Drees

 Xcel Silver, Gold & Xcel Platinum Coach

Hi! My name is Melanie and I am from Louisville Kentucky. I started gymnastics when I was 4 years old competing levels 3 through 8, and Xcel gold and platinum. I retired at the age of 16 and began coaching levels 1-6 and Xcel. I have been coaching for the past 3 years now and have also had the joy of choreographing many Xcel and optional floor and beam routines. I am currently a college student at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College hoping to earn a degree in primary education. Outside of the gym I take online college classes and enjoy spending time with my beautiful son and family. Gymnastics has been a big part of my life and has shaped me into the person I am today. Coaching gymnastics, to me, is more than just teaching and perfecting skills, it is building happy healthy confident kids! I love working with kids, and watching them grow into strong confident individuals. You can contact me at melaniedrees22@gmail.com
