samantha katorkas

Gymnastics Team Director

Samantha began her gymnastics career at the early age of 5 and quickly fell in love with the sport.  She was a USAG competitive gymnast for many years with Diamond Gymnastics in New Castle, DE. By the age of 16, she had moved from competing to coaching, where she spent years working after school, weekends and summer breaks developing her technique and love for teaching. 

Samantha earned her BA at DeSales University where she studied Musical Theatre. At DeSales, Samantha fostered her talents in dance, movement, presentation and directing- all tools she utilizes regularly in her coaching style today.

After several years of coaching at Gymtime, Samantha has taken on the role of Team Director. Gymtime is the perfect balance of hard work and discipline in a positive and supportive environment.  

“It has always been clear to me that the coaches here care about more than just the sport or the development of the athlete.  They care about the kids they are working with and their families.  As the Team Director I strive to continue that legacy with every student who joins our team program.  We want to harbor an environment of positivity and development of the individual as a whole.  We have found a way to do so without sacrificing our competitive streak- that is something special.”
