Jacqueline Purwins
Xcel and Recreational Coach

Coach Jax has been a gymnast at VEGA since 2004, competing in Women's JO levels 5-7, training at JO level 8, and competing Xcel for 3 years at the Diamond Level. She also trained with Virtuosity dance for 3 years. She loves all gymnastics events, but her favorite is the beam, especially when she gets to do a standing back tuck. Even though Jax is only a junior at Camas High School, she brings a ton of experience to the VEGA coaching staff; she has been coaching for over a year. Her favorite thing about coaching is seeing a kid really understand a skill for the first time...that moment when it all clicks.

Coach Jax has lived in Camas pretty much her whole life, and her favorite place to be besides the gym is a warm, sunny beach with a group of friends. She loves motivational quotes and aspires to go to medical school to become a sports medicine physician or an orthopedic surgeon. She is grateful for the chance to continue her gymnastics career as a coach at VEGA.
