Benefits: Gymnastics helps improve balance, coordination, strength, and flexibility. It is a great individual sport as gymnasts compete one-on-one and strive to meet personal goals. It is also a great way to overcome fears and promote independence.
Time Commitment: 1-2 hours/week for beginners
Cost: $20-$30 per class
Many gymnastic studios offer introductory classes for toddlers which require a parent’s presence. These classes are mostly running, jumping, and tumbling–a great way to get a wound-up toddler’s energy out! By age 3, most kids can practice more advanced gymnastic techniques. If children are more interested in competitive gymnastics, be prepared to spend at least twice the amount of time as listed above.
