Involvement in gymnastics helps our students develop fine motor, gross motor and physical fitness skills. It also allows them to develop a sense of self-esteem and confidence. Structured activities help our students to feel like they are contributing successfully to the group.
The hands-on aspect of gymnastics leads to cognitive skill improvement in our students and allows them to discover and access strengths that cannot be challenged in the traditional classroom setting. The inherent structure of gymnastics, with its organization and rules, are used as a learning tool for introducing and practicing self-regulation and decision making skills. Additionally, our students learn verbal communication and interaction with peers through involvement in group activities.
