Within five years, the Sandy Springs gymnastics program has grown by leaps and bounds from just 100 participants to in excess of 1,200 and now the coaching staff will see expansion too. The Sandy Springs gymnastics community welcomes husband and wife coaching team Gennadiy (“Coach G”) and Ina Korshunov. The pair joins the existing coaching staff and brings with them a combined 98 years of coaching experience of gymnasts at all skill levels and talents.
The Korshunovs came to Georgia in 1998 to share their talents and expertise with gymnasts. They coached at several other gyms until they decided to move to Sandy Springs to develop a strong base with recreational classes, additional teams and continue to compete successfully on the local, state, regional and national levels. The pair coached former Russian Olympian Elena Davydova.
According to Coach G, their coaching philosophy is very simple: know the children, find out what makes them “tick” and teach them not only gymnastics, but life lessons as well. But safety is always the first priority for the coaches and the gymnasts practicing and competing.
While at the gym, the Korshunovs will teach recreational classes as well as “special” groups of selected students: “Hot Shots,” preteam and competitive teams. They will also conduct coaching seminars with the current coaching staff to improve their skills and techniques.
