The benefits of gymnastics for kids cannot be understated. Not only does it help with balance, flexibility and strength, but it also teaches kids to pay attention, listen and follow directions. Discipline is learned by the setting of goals and the sense of achievement when they are reached. And of course, all this brings with it a good dose of self-confidence, crucial for developing minds, especially those of toddlers.
The NSW Academy of Gymnastics in Miranda has been training kids in gymnastics for 50 years. Led under the stewardship of highly acclaimed coach Bill Parsons, the centre has been training children from 18 months up to 24 years since 1971. Bill is a dedicated coach winning Women’s Coach of the Year several times over whilst the centre itself has a prestigious record of achievement in state, regional, national and overseas competitions.
The centre boasts the largest gymnasium facilities in the St George and Sutherland Shire area with highly accredited staff that focus not only on the sport of gymnastics but children’s development and focus.
The Academy gets results too, with many of the competitive gymnasts who train there going on to deliver outstanding results at both a state and national level. It was placed first overall in the state at Level 9 and 10 gymnastics, thanks to the firsthand knowledge and experience the coaches are able to pass on.
All coaches are passionate about sharing this knowledge with all budding gymnasts, no matter their age, and highly motivated about development in the sport and growth in children both physically, mentally and socially. Additionally, the Academy is a family-run business so you know you are in safe hands!
