Piper Slocum got her start in gymnastics at the age of four in a mommy and me class. Piper loved the class right away and quickly progressed once she was older. In the fall of 2013, Piper began competing level 3 with Sonshine Gymnastics and went on to finish fourth on beam and floor at the North Carolina State Championships. The next season, Piper competed level 4 and finished as the North Carolina beam state champion.

After competing level 5 during the fall 2015 season, Piper began her optional career in January 2016 as a level 6. At her first meet, the Sand Dollar Invitational, Piper won the beam title with a huge 9.800. After taking third all around at the Everest Classic, Piper competed level 7 during the rest of the season and qualified to the Region 8 Championships. Here, Piper took third on beam and sixth all around.

Following her 2016 level 7 season, Piper and her family moved to Texas and Piper began training at AIM Athletics. Piper competed level 8 in 2017 and opened up her season at the Metroplex Challenge where she won the vault title and took home silver medals on floor and in the all around. Piper had a fantastic level 8 season and finished second on floor and third on vault and in the all around at the Texas State Championships. From state, Piper moved on to the Region 3 Championships where she came home with gold medals on beam and in the all around as well as a silver on floor.

Piper began her 2018 season at the Chow's Challenge where she earned her Hopes 12-13 compulsory score and competed her first level 9 meet where she won the beam title and finished second all around. Piper continued to progress throughout the season and earned first place on beam and all around at the Texas State Championships. Piper then moved on to the Region 3 Championships where she had her best meet of the season, winning the vault, floor, and all around titles for a huge 38.750. Piper qualified to the Western Championships where she had another great meet and won the vault and all around titles.

After a stellar level 9 season, Piper began her 2019 level 10 season at the Kurt Thomas Invitational where she placed third on vault, beam, and in the all around. At her next meet, the Chow's Challenge, Piper unfortunately injured her foot on vault, but plans to petition to the Region 3 Championships.

Currently, Piper trains 34 hours per week under coaches Debbie Kaitschuck, Deana Parish, and Julian Gomez at AIM Athletics. Piper's goal is to earn a college scholarship for gymnastics.
