In September 2020, Parrish Elite welcomed it's new partner Kimmie! Kimberly Litwiler has been with Parrish Elite and Ashley since the very beginning. Way back when we were still operating out of Ashley's three car garage, Kimmie would answer the phones for us! She also helped with hair and team mom for our first season in 2016. Kimmie then took over all of the front desk duties until she became a coach in 2018. In August of 2019 she became the Gym Manager and head coach of Poseidon. She now owns and operates Parrish Elite with Ashley Johns.
Parrish Elite, LLC was started January 8, 2016 by owner Ashley Johns. We had our first cheer camp at Buffalo Creek Middle School in Palmetto FL in March of 2016. May of 2016 we had our first competitive team tryouts.
Our 2016/2017 season started with 5 little girls in a field in Parrish FL. Their name was Athena. Athena grew to 10 girls total and practiced in Coach Ashley's 3 car garage. December 2, 2016 Athena attended WSF in Tampa FL and from that garage became D2 champions. Later that season they went on to earn a bid to the GRANDE FINALE in Jacksonville FL.
In January 2017, Parrish Elite FINALLY had a roof over our heads! We moved into a 6000 square foot facility. There we grew from 1 team and 25 athletes to 5 teams and over 80 athletes! In August of 2018 we moved into our brand new warehouse, we now have 7300 square feet of space and our athletes are happily progressing! We went from 1 team and a few tumblers, to now offering over 13 different tumbling classes, full year, lntro to Cheer, After school programs, and working on more!
