Gymnastics Makes Kids Smart!
Coach Teri at GRG explains the science behind why gymnastics is good for kids’ brains.
“Brain connections are made through the activation of an important system that lies deep within the inner ear, called the vestibular system. It’s the Olympic gold winner when it comes to brain development. Specific types of movement common to gymnastics help the vestibular system develop properly.” -Teri Schmuker
The coaching team at GRG really work to coach the whole person, says Tiffany Wagner, another GRG mom. Tiffany said the coaches take into account “personality, emotional strength and readiness, other events going on in the athlete’s life and do so with respect and passion for the sport.”
