What if Johnny never learns a cartwheel? Or how about if Janie never masters holding a handstand? Would there still be any value in putting your preschooler in a gymnastics class?
Yes, I say.
In addition to it being a lot of fun, here are twenty reasons your preschool aged child should do gymnastics that have nothing to do with learning gymnastics.
So, while I hope all of the Johnny’s and Janie’s enrolled in a preschool gymnastics program learn great basic skills, have a lot of fun doing so, possibly falling in love with gymnastics and going on to stick with the sport through their childhoods, in the last analysis, these twenty traits will serve them well no matter where their athletic career goes.
Put down the iPad and take your child to the gym!
