What are the benefits of doing gymnastics?
Gymnastics aids in the development of children both socially and physically and is the starting point for inclusion in any sport. Gymnastics fuels the body and brain for learning and enhances body and spacial awareness. Gymnastics helps develop strength, flexibility, balance, co-ordination, agility and self-esteem. Gymnastics also teaches children to listen to instructions, take turns, and work independently. Lasting friendships are built, and children learn to respect both their teachers and their peers.
