Activities that take place away from the school environment are not only to help keep your children entertained and use up their boundless energy but they can also offer a number of development benefits that will help them physically, socially, and academically!
At our gymnastics classes, children can make new friendships with children that go to a different school to them and maybe of different age groups or cultures to them. Making new friends in different environments will help them to build social skills that will help them in later life. They will also learn other social skills such as working as a team, turn-taking, and compassion.
Out-of-school activities, like gymnastics, allow your child the chance to build their self-esteem. Due to our smaller groups and close interactions, the children may feel less intimidated than they do in the classroom setting and so are going to be more interested and engaged in the activities taking place. This newfound confidence can also translate into boosting their academic performance as their passion and engagement could be carried into the classroom in their daily school life.
Clubs like Star-Tastic Gymnastics, promote emotional wellbeing by allowing the children to work off excess energy, relax their minds and overcome any stresses from their daily school life which equals happy children. Our coaches also act as positive role models for your children as well.
When children get the opprounity to partcipate in different activities, the can exlore a wide range of interests which will broaden their view of the world. You are also helping them to create healthier habits and being more active which is only a good thing in this technology rich world in which we live.
Whether your child is a recreational gymnasts or one of our Elite gymnasts you can happy to know that the skills and habits that learn during their time with us will shape the kind of future they will lead as an adult – they will have learnt time management (juggling their gymnastics and school work), healthly-living hbaits to leadership skills and beeter social interaction.
