When parents found their child’s potential, they send them in the gym for training. Kids are believed to develop better as they age. In fact, they can be an aspiring Olympic gymnast if they won’t give up against extremely demanding levels. However, only a few tough guys will make that. It is obvious to us that when it comes to our children’s training regimens, we need to face some realitiesof life.
Consider the following real-life situations and see if this is something you or your kid feels.
Parent/Coach Focus: WIN, Gymnast Focus: FUN
Kids are kids. If they want to play, they will play. At their age, they don’t have serious emphasis on winning. On the other hand, most parents and coaches want wins. The future of the child is always there in their mind (count the medals, awards, and trophies) leading the young gymnasts forced to practice and undergo hard disciplines.
Work Hard is Real
Gymnastics is a sport that is inherently fun. If this is something the kids feel, they’re going to leave the gym with a happy heart. However, spending hours of time in the gym like making gymnastics a life for them will make their body tired and exhausted.
The Most Talented, The Most Burned Out When the most talented in the class is found, there could be vigorous training provided. This is to let the child hone the skills better and be sent to Olympics. Olympics is a beautiful world where participants are pushed too far, too fast – too many hours in the gym, too much pressure and too much dedication to the sport.
Wrapping Up It is important to educate the kids and parents for them to understand that everyone has limitations. Coaches have to be experienced and qualified as well to avoid bad coaching habits and practices which cannot help but ruin young ones instead. Nevertheless, gymnastics is good and fun that kids may feel greatness from within if they begin loving the sport.
