Barron is proud to offer a successful competitive program for those gymnasts who show the talent and desire to compete. Our goal is for each of our athletes to reach their highest potential in gymnastics in a safe and positive environment. We are proud of our mission of “Building Skills for Life”. We are about building your child as an athlete as well as a person. Barron competitive gymnasts are taught dedication, discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, self-worth, goal setting, and self-confidence that they will continue to use throughout their athletic and academic careers. All programs are by invitation, but if your child has a desire to compete please contact our front desk to see what opportunities we have for your child.
When taught properly, a gymnast can build skills for life, not only phyiscally but mentally. As a result, it encourages a lifetime enjoyment of physical health and fitness. Some physical attributes include: strength, flexibility, kinesthetic awareness, muscle control, endurance, agility, balance and grace. The mental attributes we hope to develop are sportsmanship, an enrichment of self-worth, self-esteem, goal setting, determination, and dedication.
