Samantha Smith

Recreational Program Director

Hello! After 10 years of being a competitive gymnast and reaching level 9 I could not just leave the sport of gymnastics, so I decided to start coaching! I have coached everything from preschool and beginner recreational gymnastics to competitive gymnastics. I began coaching in high school and quickly realized I wanted to coach while I was in college too. I graduated from East Carolina University in 2019 with a degree in developmental services for children and a minor in psychology, all while coaching in Greenville, NC.


My coaching experiences through my time in college showed me that gymnastics will always be my passion. So, I decided to put the two things I love the most, child development and gymnastics, together! Which has brought me to SGA as the Recreational Program Director! If I am not at the gym I am probably hanging out with my dog, Harvey, and cat, Sully, or my boyfriend Will. During the summertime you will most likely find me on a beach listening to good music with friends and family!
