PARENT INFORMATION

All children are faced with situations that may be very different from what you faced as a child.  Society has changed, the educational system has changed and the family structure may have changed.  The young people of today have a much faster paced world to deal with.  Parenting now is more difficult than just 10 years ago.  Pressures on young people today are also greater now then ever before. Parents of today need to recognize these pressures and deal with them effectively. Consequently,
it is more and more important to offer young children positive learning situations outside the home. With the family becoming more extended as both the mother and father work in many families, the positive after school programs become even more essential.  By enrolling your child in an activity such as gymnastics, you are giving them the opportunities necessary to handle
the pressures of the times.  The lessons learned in sports such as gymnastics will help them face the many situations of their young adult lives with the tools to make the proper decisions.

Gymnastics City is teaching much more than just cartwheels.  We are teaching that hard work brings accomplishment. We are teaching that there are others out there who are available to help in the quest of achievement. There is so much more going on.  Our staff is made up of professionals who have been trained and educated to teach the children positive learning skills.  Through education, clinics, workshops, and National training seminars, these instructors have been taught positive teaching techniques for your child.  They care very much about the job they are doing and the children they are working with.

At Gymnastics City , the instructors are promoting the security and safety of discipline.  Not a negative, drill sergeant type of discipline, but a positive, (it is necessary to understand and abide by the rules) type of discipline.  A discipline that will be shown to help development and achievement.  A positive discipline sometimes needed in this type of society in which we live today.  We offer structure, and the students know what to expect when they walk in the door to the gym.  There is security here.  There is structure in the classes.  There is safety and security when you know what the rules are and what the acceptable behavior is; Structure in the today's world is critical. Too often there are young people with little if any structure in their lives. Consequently, Gymnastics City helps create the learning situations that will make a difference.

IS GYMNASTICS FOR YOUR CHILD?

Research data persistently point to the fact that children in our society do not get enough exercise, a reality that results in a
preponderance of unfit, overweight children who will become unfit, overweight adults.

 
Gymnastics and related activities provide an excellent movement foundation for all children.  Tumbling develops muscular
strength and flexibility.  The balance beam develops foot and eye coordination, and balance.  Bar work builds upper body
strength, and vaulting develops speed and power.  The trampoline, when used safely, develops cardiovascular endurance,
balance and spatial awareness.  Of course, all of these activities develop muscular coordination. 

 
As children become older, or if their training is competitive in nature, the value of gymnastics training expands to include
the development of self-control, concentration, perseverance, self discipline and courage. 

 
Gymnastics for children is perhaps one of the areas where there is great potential for not only the development of the many
physical attributes - muscular strength, flexibility, grace, poise, aesthetics and powerful movement - but, emotional factors
as well.  The challenge of performing and the self-discipline, time and effort it takes to perfect gymnastics skills and routines
teach children many lessons, such as:

 

*The value and rewards of hard work
*The thrill of accomplishment
*The need for self-confidence
*The joy of increased self-esteem
*The control of fear
*The development of courage
*The need for self-control
 
Parents report that gymnastics has improved their child's academic performance.  Certainly being tenacious, focused, having
the ability to concentrate and self discipline are prerequisites to being successful at gymnastics as well as in the classroom.
