Have you noticed your little one tumbling around and doing tricks at home? Well, a couple of weeks ago we began a unit on gymnastics as a part of our weekly physical activity. As a former gymnast and experienced coach, I am excited to be sharing my love of this sport with my students. The students are always excited to learn new skills and to show off ones they have been practicing. In addition to being an outlet for energy to these young students, the sport also teaches balance, control, coordination, and self-discipline while helping to strengthen their growing bodies. If you see your child practicing tricks at home, encourage them to practice on soft ground away from hard objects or sharp corners. Be sure they show you their favorite skill!
