When we think of Cheer, the first word that comes to mind is fun, right? Cheer is very fun, but it is so much more than that! Many of the benefits of cheer and tumbling classes are related to learning more important developmental areas that will help your child become a better student and young adult.
Self confidence, coordination, and hard work ethic are also benefits of being in a Cheer program that will last a lifetime. Through the challenge of learning tumbling and cheerleading skills, the students gain confidence with each step that they take. While performing stunts they must have faith in others, and they gain confidence in their own abilities.
As students advance into higher levels, Tumbling and Cheerleading can be tough sports because it takes grit and determination. The best thing about it is that the kids have to earn the skills; we just can’t give them to them. This hard work shows them that the more they work the more they learn. What a great lesson to learn at a young age!
