Gymnastics is a fun, dynamic sport that lets kids feed their inner circus performer, daredevil or Olympian dream.
While spunky students may, indeed, try to launch themselves in the air during that first class, the goal is to teach kids the fundamentals and have fun, so they will fall in love with the sport and therefore further develop their skills.
Much of an introductory-level class session will focus on developing strength and flexibility, as well as good listening skills. It will also help youngsters become comfortable with the gym. Bring your child to class clean, dressed and ready to participate. Wear fitted clothes. Kids will be going upside down. You do not want them trying to hold their shirt down when they should be focused on their form and the safe execution of the skill at hand.
For girls, a leotard and compression shorts are recommended. Avoid tights as the footing can be slippery. Leggings and footless tights are generally fine.
For boys, a compression shirt or t-shirt which can tuck in and athletic shorts or compression shorts should work. Gymnasts may wear socks; if they find them slippery, they can be easily removed.
At the beginner stage, special accessories such as grips or beam shoes are not necessary. No jewelry should be worn,Long hair should be tied back.
Eat well before class.
As stated before, kids will be going upside down. Upset tummies lead to a mess for the instructor, so ensure your child has had proper time to digest their meal before class starts, and remember to bring a labelled water bottle.
Finally, have them use the bathroom before class. Especially with the youngest students, when one kid has to go during class, suddenly they all need to go!
