Kamryn Self got her start in gymnastics at the age of two in a mommy and me class. Kamryn loved being in the gym from the beginning and what was supposed to be an activity just for fun turned into a passion. Kamryn continued to improve and was eventually invited to join the team program at Cypress Academy of Gymnastics.
Kamryn began competing in fall 2018 as a level 4. At her first meet, a District 5 Qualifier, Kamryn finished fifth on bars. Two weeks later, Kamryn won the bars and all around titles at her meet. In October, Kamryn competed at the District 5 Championships where she earned a bronze medal on bars as well as qualified to the Texas South State Championships. At South State, Kamryn had a fantastic meet, winning the all around title as well as a bronze medal on beam. From South State, Kamryn qualified to the Texas State Championships where she concluded her season with a win on bars with a 9.700 as well as a seventh place finish in the all around.
Following her level 4 season, Kamryn began training at World Champions Centre. Kamryn began her optional career in January 2020 as a level 7 at the Alamo Classic. Here, Kamryn finished in the top five on vault, bars, and beam. At her next three meets, Kamryn finished in the top three in the all around as well as vault. Unfortunately, Kamryn's season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
