Interim Head Coach

University of Iowa graduate and former GymHawk, Jessa Hansen Parker was named interim head coach on May 13, 2024. She recently completed her fourth season as an assistant coach with the Iowa women’s gymnastics program.

During her first four seasons with the Hawkeyes, Hansen Parker has coached an NCAA Championships runner-up, six WCGA All-Americans, one Big Ten Freshman of the Year and 13 All-Big Ten selections.  The GymHawks ended two of the four seasons ranked in the top 20 nationally, including a No. 15 national ranking in 2022.

The GymHawks finished the 2024 season ranked 37th nationally. Four Hawkeyes qualified for NCAA Regionals, marking the 24th straight season season (either as a team or individually). Seven different gymnasts won individual titles throughout the season with sophomore Karina Muñoz leading the team with 14. Junior Ilka Juk and Muñoz earned all-conference honors and sophomore Bailey Libby was named to the all-championship team after posting a 9.900 on floor.

Frequently Asked Questions

DO YOU OFFER SCHOLARSHIPS?

  • The UI Athletics Department does not sponsor any scholarships for camp or clinic attendees.  The University offers the E.B. Green Scholarship for attendance at any University-sponsored youth program.

HOW DO I GET DOCUMENTATION TO CLAIM CAMP FEES ON MY TAXES?

  • If you are eligible to deduct camp fees for TAX purposes, use TAX ID#426004813.

DO YOU HAVE TO LIVE IN IOWA TO ATTEND CAMP AS A RESIDENT?

  • No, resident refers to your status while you are attending camp, not your home address.

WHAT IF I CAN'T GET A MEDICAL RELEASE OR SCHOOL PHYSICAL?

  • A medical release MUST be signed by a doctor OR a copy of your school sports physical performed within one year of the camp date to attend any of our camps. If you come to camp without a medical release, you can contact a doctor and have them fax a copy or go to a local UI QUICK CARE and have a sports physical performed. There are NO EXCEPTIONS. If you choose to have a doctor fax us a copy, your child will be unable to participate in any sessions until this medical release is received by the Athletic Trainer.

WHEN IS MY MEDICAL RELEASE DUE?

  • When you apply online, you will be required to provide your insurance information; the medical release may be mailed later. However, it is best to send your completed medical release before you check in the first day of camp, and you can do this via fax, scan and email or US mail. THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT, AS YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE UNTIL THE MEDICAL RELEASE OR A COPY OF THEIR SCHOOL PHYSICAL IS RECEIVED.

DO YOU OFFER A SHUTTLE SERVICE FROM THE AIRPORT?

WHAT AIRPORT SHOULD I USE?

  • The Eastern Iowa Airport (CID), located in Cedar Rapids, IA is approximately 25 miles north of the University of Iowa campus.

CAN I VISIT MY CHILD WHILE THEY ARE ATTENDING CAMP?

  • You are welcome to come and watch any session your child is attending. If you need to remove your child for any reason, make sure their counselor is notified. 

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE IF MY CHILD IS INJURED OR NEEDS MEDICAL ATTENTION WHILE AT CAMP?

  • If your child is injured during camp, they will be taken to our Athletic Trainer immediately, and the Athletic Trainer will determine what action is required. If necessary, the Athletic Trainer will contact the parent/guardian and discuss care options. We can take the camper to UI Sports Medicine or the UI Emergency Department. Cost for treatment of injuries and/or hospitalization is the responsibility of the parent/guardian. We will have your insurance information from your online registration.

WHO DO I TALK TO IF MY CHILD NEEDS TO TAKE MEDICATION WHILE THEY ARE ATTENDING CAMP?

  • When you go through the check-in process, make certain that you stop at the Athletic Trainers table and discuss your child’s medication.
