Manning Gymnastics preparing for Nationals

Coaching at Nationals is becoming old hat for Manning Gymnastics head coach Chad Ganaway.

This weekend will mark the 22nd time Ganaway will coach a team at Nationals, this time one that includes his daughter. Caleigh Ganaway is a Level 5 gymnast and is part of a team of thirteen that will represent Manning at the Stars and Stripes National Championships in West Palm Beach this weekend.

“It’s really exciting, and also really nerve wracking,” Ganaway said of coaching his daughter on the national stage. “I’ve always made fun of the parents of how anxious they get…and now I completely understand why.”

Manning will travel to Florida on Wednesday, with competition set to begin on Friday.
