Girls achievement classes
Participation in gymnastics helps children become physically active, and stay fit and healthy. Our Achievement classes focus on the importance of becoming strong, flexible and coordinated, all with a strong emphasis on having a great time!
Some Myths about Recreational Gymnastics:
My child isn’t very coordinated so she should not do gymnastics. (You could also substitute strong or flexible for coordinated.)
- All the more reason your child should do gymnastics! Gymnastics works on those fundamental gross motor skills that all children need to develop to become physically fit.
If my child isn’t going to be on team, she shouldn’t waste her time doing gymnastics.
- Not so. Gymnastics is a wonderful activity in and of itself. In addition to the physical benefits of the sport, gymnastics offers all sorts of life lessons, character building opportunities and the chance to meet new friends. And, perhaps most importantly for the child participating, it’s fun!
There isn’t much my child can get from a once a week class.
- The APA recommends that all children get at least 60 minutes a day of physical activity. So, on gymnastics day, that is taken care of for you! In addition, the basic fitness skills your children will learn make it considerably more likely that they continue to participate in other sports and physical activities on their days away from the gym. In addition, the life lessons of preserving and having self-discipline are part of any gymnastics lesson. Also, you are welcome to enroll in a second day!
Gymnastics is too dangerous!
- Most gymnastics related injuries don’t take place under at a gymnastics club, rather they happened at home! Gymnastics when practiced at a well-equipped club with safety certified, professional coaches who follow a safe, logical and developmentally appropriate lesson plan is quite safe.
These classes are designed for school-aged girls (5-15), and range from beginner to advanced. Gymnasts cycle through the four events (bars, beam, floor, vault), as well as learn to safely use the trampoline. Strength and flexibility training is incorporated in every lesson, and safety is a focus in every class!
