There is no question that organized sports are great for kids!
Participating in a sport as a youth provides not only increased physical activity, but it also helps them to develop strength physically as well as socially. Studies have also shown that children who participate in an organized sport have greater success later in life. For example, did you know that approximately 73% of all corporate executives participated in organized sports when they were young?
Each year, with images of Olympic Gold dancing in their head, an average of 4 million children enroll in a sport near and dear to our OCSC hearts…..GYMNASTICS!
The perfect blend of Sports, Fitness & Fun
Gymnastics is a comprehensive sport that provides a workout for all muscle groups within the body. In a country where 1 in 3 adults are obese, gymnastics teaches our youth about living a healthy lifestyle and studies have shown that students of the sport continue to follow it as they grow into adulthood.
