Recreational Gymnastics Philosophy & Teaching Concepts
While much attention is focused on the “sport” of gymnastics, it is the “activity” of gymnastics that sustains our industry. Without those children who enroll in recreational gymnastics classes just to have fun and improve their skills, our industry would be reduced to non-profit programs struggling for donations to keep their doors open. With that in mind, knowing how to make it fun and successful becomes an important job skill for gymnastics instructors.
A learning environment that defines success as “personal best” doesn’t guarantee that everyone “will” win. But it does guarantee that everyone “can” win.
