Gymnastics for kids & with learning difficulties at S-miles Center

Why Gymnastics?

Gymnastics is a fun way for your child to get and stay fit and is one of the only sports that works total body strength, flexibility and aerobic development, all while developing and enhancing motor skills.

The benefits of gymnastics go far beyond forward rolls and cartwheels. Gymnastics is the foundation that could result in your child being more confident and happier throughout their physical and academic life.

With proper skill progressions and fundamental strength development, we strive to not only increase the child's strength, skill and agility, but to also enrich the child through their participation in the sport that is an integral part of a healthy and active lifestyle, and a strong compliment to other sports.

With the many small challenges in each class, gymnastics teaches self discipline while building self confidence. Studies by NASA have even shown that gymnastics increases the ability for academic learning and physical fitness.

The certified instructor at S-miles Center provides a wide variety of opportunities for your child (and even you) to experience this great sport.

Whether looking for a "one time" experience, or a fun but valuable recreational class, or fulfilling your child's dream to become a motivated and talented competitive athlete, S-miles Center has something for everyone.
