Benefits of Gymnastics

Did you know that gymnastics helps kids to develop physical skills like body control, coordination, and strength?

In addition, gymnastics for kids allows children to experience self-confidence through creativity and performance and helps to lay a strong foundation for other sports in which a child might express interest.

Check out some of the long-lasting benefits of getting a child involved in the gymnastics programs we offer at SIGS!

  • Gymnastics develops the whole child. In Parent/Tot or Preschool Gymnastics classes, children learn to listen, follow directions, and even take turns. In Preschool and Elementary School Gymnastics classes, children learn how to respect one another, work as a team, and celebrate other children’s victories, not simply their own.

  • Gymnastics helps build confidence. Even toddler gymnastics can help to develop self-confidence and self-esteem early in childhood. It gives the child an opportunity to love and value themselves just as they are. As kids develop new gymnastics skills, they activate rapid cognitive development through understanding, application, proficiency, and mastery.

  • Gymnastics enhances physical development. Gymnastics allows kids to develop strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, and body control skills. Gymnastics also lays a strong foundation for a healthy habit of physical fitness throughout a child’s lifetime.

  • Gymnastics can help frame a routine for your child. Consistent and scheduled extracurricular activities help children anticipate what will happen next and provides a sense of security, control, and confidence. For young children, involvement in extracurricular activities also provides structure to prepare them for school and beyond.

  • Gymnastics fosters ongoing skill and child development. Participating in extracurricular activities allows children to explore new interests and abilities, giving them space to discover what they enjoy doing. Whether a specific sport, playing an instrument, or even an interest in art. Developing new skills, and finding those you like, continue to build self-confidence and self-esteem within children.

Gymnastics provides an opportunity for children to acquire not just physical skills but social and emotional skills that will be a compass for their future. It’s a sport that truly benefits the whole child!
