Here at Silverton Gymnastics we love helping kids discover what they can learn and achieve. Our main focus in each class is keeping it safe, fun and positive, from the regular drills for strength and flexibility to mastering skills on the events. We use positive encouragment to help them improve just a little more each time they attempt a skill. We hold simple contests and games such as who can hold their handstand the longest or team up for a fun relay race. After each class, every student will receive a reward for a job well done whether it is a stamp, sticker of just a great big high five. Every child has strengths and every child has a different learning style. We incorporate all of these differences into our teaching to help each child make their own accomplishments!
Benefits of Gymnastics
Gymnastics is one of the most comprehensive activities compared to other youth sports due to the large range of physical capacity, coordination, flexilibty, and gross motor skills required for the wide range of movements. Not only do children gain coordination, strength, flexibility and balance but they will also grow in many social and psychological ways as well. They will learn how to work in a team, build confidence, self-esteem, discipline, the learn the value of hard work to achieve their goals. These effects will help your children in many other aspects of their lives from success in school, making new friends, and creating regular healthy habits for life!We keep all of these elements in mind when creating our programs so our students will get the most out of their experience.
