Why Gymnastics?


Gymnastics is a sport for everyBODY, regardless of age, gender or ability. It is the perfect activity to prepare children for long-term participation in sport and develops vital life skills.


Gymnastics provides many benefits to children’s growth and development. The package of benefits offered by gymnastics participation can enrich and physically educate the lives of its participants in ways that are difficult to achieve through most other activities and sports (Sands, 2003).

- enhanced development of fundamental motor patterns

- enhanced flexibility

- enhanced general strength and postural control

- ability to learn to jump, land and fall safely

- enhanced balance

- enhanced aerobic and anaerobic endurance

- unique long-term bone forming and strengthening advantages

- potential for enhanced cognitive benefits

- enhanced Task Mastery orientations

- potential for enhanced skill goal setting, team work and the ability to focus on tasks.
