BACKGROUND & OVERVIEW

Gymnastic Events for Kids


Gymnasts participate in a number of activities, with specific events typically varying a bit for boys and girls. Traditionally, girls perform on a balance beam, uneven parallel bars, vault, and do floor exercises.


Boys also do floor exercises and the vault, as well as parallel bars, horizontal bar, rings, and pommel horse. The demands of all gymnastic events require a level of physical fitness, balance, coordination, and overall conditioning, making gymnastics a wise choice for kids from toddlers to teens.



Gymnastics and Special Needs Children


Most children enjoy playing actively, and gymnastics can be especially enjoyable for kids with developmental delays or other special needs. The social nature of gymnastics classes helps kids to form bonds with other children, yet the exercises themselves are individual so kids are less likely to feel the need to impress their peers than they may in team sports.


Studies have shown the benefits of gymnastics for some autistic children, allowing them to get necessary activity and exercise while maintaining a sense of control over excessive stimulation. Autistic kids have difficulty when they are exposed to too much stimuli, but the solo nature of many gymnastics events allows the kids to keep their environmental stimuli to a manageable level. With sensitive coaching and parental support, kids with autism and other special needs can gain confidence while getting fit and having fun.
