Selecting a Kids Sport can be a Balancing Act

With so many sports on offer, it can be hard for parents to know what to enrol their children in. Nevertheless, gymnastics may be the answer. 

Gymnastics is a great foundation program for all sports as it develops fine and gross motor skills, strength, coordination and balance, whilst also allowing children to socialize in a fun, engaging environment.

Mitchelton Youth Club (MYC) runs a number of gymnastics programs for children of all ages, however their Kindergym program is especially helpful for children before they go to school. Kindergym is a physical and social development program for children aged approx. 2-5 yrs. based on gymnastics skills and apparatus. This unique program is built around your child’s coordination and development, but also builds self-esteem, as they have full control over their body movement. As a result, that builds their self-confidence. As with all the gymnastics programs that take place at MYC, the Kindergym program is taught by accredited coaches and is fully affiliated with Gymnastics Queensland and Gymnastics Australia.

You can be fully assured that this club knows what they are doing when it comes to gymnastics. Having been established in 1941, this not-for-profit organisation has been proudly supporting the community through sporting & physical activity. In the process, they have earnt a reputation in the community for delivering first class gymnastics programs in a safe and nurturing environment. Nonetheless, although the club is steeped in history, Lauren Maidens, Club Manager of MYC tells us they are truly equipped for the 21st century. 

‘Since the club was established almost 80 years ago it has gone through many transformations in its time. We now offer modern facilities, world class coaches along with a user-friendly customer portal where clients can easily book into program sessions,’ explains Lauren.

If you are looking for an opportunity to try out the Kindergym program, MYC is hosting a ‘Kindergym Activation Day’ on the 21st January. There will be a ‘Kinder class’ for ages 2-3yrs from 9am – 10am and another ‘Pre-school/Prep class’ for children ages 4-6yrs from 10am–11am.
