Everyone watches the amazing gymnasts that compete in the Olympic Games and are captivated by their grace, strength and flexibility. But at the grass roots, gymnastics is an amazing developmental sport that has a profound impact on a child’s entire well-being. It benefits your child physically, academically and socially. Gymnastics provides the proper athletic foundations for all sporting endeavors. It helps increase flexibility, strength, speed, agility, coordination and balance. Also being physically active in gymnastics may prevent obesity and some types of cancer, and it helps blood pressure and bone density. Active children tend to grow up to become active and healthy teens and adults.
Gymnastics has many other benefits that may not be as obvious as the physical ones. It can help your child outside of the gym, too! Since gymnastics is a developmental sport, it builds skills through progression of steps. This helps improve your child’s concentration, which can help them with problem solving, math and reading in school. Gymnastics requires children to not only use both sides of their brain separately, but it also requires both sides to work at the same time together! This is very beneficial for your child.
Gymnastics also helps enhance children’s social skills. During a class, children will observe, practice waiting their turn, follow directions, respect others and listen. All of these skills are very important for a child to practice to enhance their social skills. As a child achieves skills and is encouraged by their coach, they increase their self esteem and gain a sense of control over their body’s movements, which increases healthy self empowerment and body awareness.
Children of all ages can reap the benefits from gymnastics. Now is the time to enroll your child so they can experience all the benefits gymnastics has to offer. The best part of gymnastics is that your child will be having so much fun they won’t even realize how much they are learning in the process!
With all that gymnastics has to offer, you can understand why gymnastics is an integral part of ALL the programs at TEGA. DanceKids, Afterschool Care, Palaestra Preschool, Childcare, and Summer Kids’ Day Out all include gymnastics as part of their curriculum.
