Skyline Gymnastics and Other Programs in the Harrisonburg, VA Area

Mom and daughters at Showalter's Orchard in Timberville VA

Looking for a fun way to expose your child to a new sport in a non-competitive atmosphere? Finding a gymnastics program may be just the thing! Besides the more obvious skills we think of when we consider the sport of gymnastics (like flexibility and coordination) there are a few other convincing reasons you may want to check out a gymnastics program for your child: practicing/competing doesn’t depend on the weather, it can help with numeracy skills, it helps with cognitive skills, and it’s creative. (See this article for more information on those points, and more.) I’ve compiled a list of local places to take gymnastics, including Skyline Gymnastics in the Harrisonburg, VA, and hope you find it helpful!

Though most kids won’t go on to compete in gymnastics on the collegiate or Olympic levels, gymnastics is a super fun way to get exercise and burn off energy! Besides, the basic gymnastics skills (coordination, strength, balance, flexibility) are transferable to other sports and growing in those areas will allow kids to move around better in general.  And while you may have already heard about Skyline Gymnastics in Harrisonburg, VA, it is great to know that there are other local options as well!
