- Improved listening skills as they learn how to interact with coaches
- Increased physical activity has been shown to increase children's self-esteem
- Full body workout will increase bone density, flexibility, balance and strength
- Skills gained through gymnastics can be carried through to other sports including; softball, basketball, soccer, baseball, football, skiing, just to name a few
