Gymnastics is not just about sport, it is about learning to move and moving to learn. Gymnastics teaches all of the fundamental movement patterns associated with improved physical development, cognitive learning and both social & emotional development. Research shows that there is a strong correlation between fundamental movement and healthy brain function. Gymnastics therefore has both physical and non-physical benefits, the resulting attributes of which help with any sport or physical activity that individuals decide to pursue.
