We're proud to promote gymnastics as a means to develop skills of a lifetime for individuals. Pre-School movement classes help provide the individual with the all-important social skills necessary to be an adult. Problem solving, sharing, and waiting your turn (patience) are skills we all use every day of our life. If this is all we did, it would probably be enough, however Gymnastics provides so much more.
Gymnastics is a multifaceted sport that develops physical strength, speed and agility, nerves of steel and it’s FUN! Studies of how young children learn have proven that they especially acquire knowledge through play, experimentation, exploration, and discovery.
Gymnastics is a challenging sport. There is no doubt about it. Walking, let alone flipping, is hard to do on a four-inch balance beam. It takes more than a few push-ups to master an iron cross on the rings. So it is safe to say that gymnastics is “hard”. Even so, the qualities it takes to master these skills learned from gymnastics such as courage, perseverance, risk, determination, vision as well as many others are the qualities that foster excellence in any endeavor. Dealing with the “hard” will translate into valuable life skills and strength of character. Bolstered by unconditional love from parents and skilled guidance from coaches, your children will be much more prepared to handle the “hard” of life because of the challenges they faced in the gym.
