Find out what to expect from our competitive programs and gymnastics classes for kids.
Gymnastics offers a variety of benefits for kids of all ages, from physical strength, balance, and flexibility, to self-confidence and hours of fun! There are plenty of factors to consider when picking out the right facility, instructors, and curriculum in a children’s gymnastics gym for your gymnast, and we’ll cover a few of them in this post.
- Encouraging coaches in a safe environment
- Motivating instruction style
- Personal growth opportunities
- Fun factor
Encouraging coaches in a safe environment
It’s important to feel comfortable with, and confident in, the instructors who will be spending time with your young athlete. What is their training and certification background? Will your child be carefully monitored at all times? Do the personalities of the instructors and coaches mesh well with you and your child?
Motivating instruction style
When looking for a children’s gymnastics gym, also consider the variety of classes that are available and how athletes progress to new, higher levels of instruction over time. Are you looking for a fun and playful environment for a beginner? Is your child ready for more structure and skill development? Or do you have an advanced athlete who aspires to intense levels of competition?
Personal growth opportunities
We believe that a children’s gymnastics gym should offer more than just technical instruction – it should also help young athletes develop lifelong personal skills that will stick with them for life.
- Monthly sessions with a certified life coach to enhance self-image, emotional health, self-awareness, and self-esteem
- Communication skill-building, including listening and self-expression exercises
- Cultivating an “attitude of gratitude” through volunteer activities
Fun factor in a children’s gymnastics gym
While hard work on the mat matters, it’s also important to have fun! A superior children’s gymnastics gym will put equal emphasis on fun, safety, and skill-building. If your child is young or new to gymnastics, be sure to ask them what they want to get out of their classes. (The chances are good that “fun” will be part of their list!)
