Head Coach, Women’s Gymnastics
2015 WCA Graduate, Class #36
Former Stanford standout Tabitha Yim was named head coach of the Cardinal women’s gymnastics team in August 2017.
Yim, a former Cardinal assistant coach, spent the past two seasons at Arizona as head coach of the Wildcats’ program.
During Yim’s first stint at Stanford, she coached gymnasts in all four events and specialized in beam and floor as an elite choreographer. She led the Cardinal’s recruiting efforts and played an integral role in the team’s social media efforts. Yim helped coach Stanford to its two highest team scores at an NCAA Championship competition in program history at the 2012 Super Six (197.500) and 2015 Super Six (197.250).
A collegiate standout from 2005-08, Yim earned 14 All-America honors, the most in school history. She placed among the top 10 in the NCAA all-around competition all four years and twice won Pac-10 and NCAA regional all-around titles. In addition, Yim was named Pac-10 and Regional Gymnast of the Year during her senior season.
Yim was an extremely versatile gymnast, which has helped in her transition to coaching. She won two regional titles and one Pac-10 championship on the balance beam, was a two-time regional uneven bars champion, and twice placed third in the floor exercise at the NCAA Championships.
