Cheer is a social and team-based activity that boosts self-esteem while contributing to greater physical strength, coordination, balance and flexibility.
At the Y, cheer instills leadership by helping children set a positive mood with their voice and attitude. Children also learn team-building, discipline and creativity developing and perfecting routines.
In addition, cheer classes bring out the little leader in participants. A cheerleader will:
- Set the mood
- Use positive reinforcement to motivate a team
- Encourage discipline and teamwork
- Build confidence within themselves and those they are cheering for
Oh, to be a kid again! Tumbling, a form of gymnastics without the use of equipment, is so much fun! It develops social skills, reinforces spatial concepts such as over, under, in, out, together, apart; and enhances gross motor skills (movement and coordination).
At the Y, your little ones can learn age-appropriate balance and flexibility skills. Participants will learn the basics of tumbling in a fun and safe way. Utilizing indoor mats, tumblers will discover movements like rolls, stretches, cartwheels and more.
