20 Reasons your Preschooler should do Gymnastics
(That have Nothing to do with Learning Gymnastics)
What if Johnny never learns a cartwheel? Or how about if Janie never masters holding a handstand? Would there still be any value in putting your preschooler in a gymnastics class?
Yes, I say.
In addition to it being a lot of fun, here are twenty reasons your preschool aged child should do gymnastics that have nothing to do with learning gymnastics.
North West Gymnastics wants your help to design our new club polo!!
We feel it’s about time for a change to our competition polo shirt for our competitive kids and we are looking to you to help us design our new competition polo.
You will still be able to use our existing shirts for competitions however over time we’ll look to phase them out.
To enter the competition simply submit your design using the attached template by the 1st of August 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please provide as much detail as you can with your drawing regarding colours and patterns.
Template here: NWG 2018 Design Our Club Comp Polo Competition
We will then post the submissions for voting by you to help us decide on our club style.
The winner not only gets the blast from designing our new club shirt but will also receive a free Polo and other goodies.
Please note: We are not intending to change the club competition leotards or men’s clothing and hence the colours that you see on our club leo’s would likely be a good guide for the designs.
North West Gymnastics are excited to have teamed up with Tumble Star for great deals on their products.
We can’t wait for our new air track. It will be great to use for those developing skills such as handsprings for the kids.
