Gymnastics is a fun and challenging sport that involves performing moves and exercises requiring physical strength, flexibility, power, agility, co-ordination, grace and balance. You don’t need to have all these skills before becoming a gymnast, they are things you learn as you train – and anyone can have a go!
Within the umbrella of gymnastics there are a number of disciplines including recreational, women’s artistic, men’s artistic, rhythmic which among others are all taught here at VGA.
There are a number of reasons why you should get your children involved in gymnastics
Its fun – children love jumping, rolling, turning, twisting and swinging around, so why not put them in an environment where it is allowed, instead of your lounge!
It gives your children a great start in life – teaching them about balance, co-ordination and body control, all fundamental for their growth and development
It builds confidence – learning new skills and getting stronger will help your child’s self-esteem. It’s rewarding to achieve new things.
It helps support classroom skills – listening and learning new moves helps instil the discipline needed to learn in the classroom.
