Emphasizing the value of play, the objectives of the Active Child and GYMEX programs are Fun-fitness, Sports Basics and Self-Confidence!
Basic sport: Gymnastics develop physical attributes that are perfect stepping stones for other sports – flexibility, strength, agility and balance.
Coordination: A keener sense of dynamic balance and coordinated movements.
Confidence: As a child moves from easy to more complex skills, he/she develops a sense of accomplishment and confidence in his/her abilities.
Goal Orientation: The progressive nature of gymnastics teaches the child the purpose of setting goals for his/her efforts … a valuable lesson at any age.
Discipline and Organization: Children learn that in order to improve, certain things have to be done in a certain way each time if it’s going to work. They learn that discipline and organization can lead to success!
