Chayce Patton began gymnastics at the age of three after her mom saw an advertisement for Olympiad Gymnastics. After just one class, Chayce loved it and at age four was invited to join the club's team. Chayce began competing in January 2018 as a level 2 and won the vault, bars, beam, and all around titles at her first meet. Halfway through her season, Chayce was invited to join Olympiad's Elite Development Program. Chayce then went on to take second on vault, bars, and in the all around at the Delaware State Championships.
Chayce competed a second season of level 2 during the 2018-2019 season and kicked off her season at the Turkey Meet Invitational where she won all four events and the all around. In March, Chayce competed at the Delaware State Championships and had a great meet, winning the bars, beam, and all around titles.
Just one month after her level 2 state meet, Chayce competed her first level 4 meet at the Handsprings for Hope Invitational where she took second on bars. Chayce continued to compete level 4 throughout the 2019-2020 season and kicked off her season at the Turkey Meet where she won the bars, beam, and all around titles. Chayce won the all around title at her next meet as well, the Liberty Cup, in addition to the vault, bars, and floor titles. Following the Liberty Cup, Chayce was able to compete four more meets before the season was canceled due to COVID-19.
Chayce began her 2020-2021 season competing level 5 at the Turkey Meet. Chayce had a great first meet of the season, winning the bars, beam, and all around titles. She improved and progressed through the season. In May she qualified to the Delaware State Championships where she concluded her season winning bronze medals on bars, beam and all around.
Currently, Chayce trains 20 hours per week under coaches Monet Tillman Horsey and Tiara Wright at Dream Chasers Gymnastics. Chayce's goals for this season are to make America's Top 100 and qualify for Judge's Cup. In the future, Chayce wants to earn a spot on the US Olympic Team and earn a scholarship to the University of Florida for gymnastics.
