Summer is a Great Time for Gymnastics!

The weather is warming up, the days are getting longer, and it’s pretty clear that summer is almost here. With that, the kids will finish school and need something to keep them entertained for the next few weeks. Why not start them in gymnastics? You will see on that kids love acro and gymnastics and it is very stimulating for them. There are more reasons to do it than just because the kids have so much fun though. In addition to being an exciting activity for kids, it offers several other benefits:

  • Offers a fun form of exercise to help kids stay fit and healthy.
  • Increases strength, flexibility and helps develop resilience.
  • Encourages enhanced self-confidence and helps boost self-esteem.
  • Offers opportunities for social interaction, teaching lessons on how to cooperate well with others and form and foster friendships.

If you aren’t convinced by these increased benefits alone, consider these other positive advantages offered to your kids by starting summer gymnastics:

Practice Outside

You can be sure that after just a few gymnastics classes, all your child will want to do is show you their amazing new moves! They will rush home after class excited to show you what they learned, exclaiming, “look what I can do!” As we all know, cartwheels in the kitchen are not ideal. Starting them off with gymnastics in the summer means they can show you everything on the lawn, as well as get in some extra practice and refine their skills and abilities.

Go to Camp

Perhaps the best reason to start gymnastics in the summer is to be able to come to camp! Trix Acro Gym offers summer camps for kids in acro, dance, gymnastics and much more.  These camps not only serve as a great way to learn about gymnastics and try it out, they go for the entire day, five days a week, so parents can use these as a great childcare option during the summer months.  This is a win-win for kids and parents alike, and you can be sure the program will have everything needed to keep your child, happy, safe, engaged and, of course, active, and healthy!

Get Focused

Summer time is the best time of year to start gymnastics for families and children who know they want to take it seriously, potentially entering the competitive side of gymnastics and going to events like you see displayed in the gallery at During the school year, there are a lot of other distractions – homework, other extra-curricular activities, school events, and after school study groups.  This can make it hard to devote the time and commitment to focus on gymnastics at the level that is needed in order to be successful in competitions and events.  By starting off in the summer and laying a strong, committed base of skills and practice, this can be transferred over during the school year and your child will be ready to compete when the events come up.

While summer may be the time to be outside, it’s also the best time to start gymnastics! Visit to learn more about what we offer, how to get started and to see all the exciting images showing exactly what your child will be doing when you take advantage of the summer offerings.
