Rugby May 2019

 

Rugby is a great way for children improve their overall body strength and fitness as it is enables them to have a full body workout - throwing the ball for long distances is beneficial for upper body strength and all the running needed helps increase leg strength.

 

Playing in a team helps develop social skills and self esteem.

Through gymnastics, children experience the benefit of moving their bodies - climbing, reaching, grasping and even falling. For some children the gymnastics environment becomes a therapeutic playground, gymnastics teaches the fundamental movement skills leading to physical literacy.

 

Learning movement skills help children regardless of age or ability to:

  • enhance brain function in early years
  • improve motor skills, balance, strength, posture, coordination, and sleep patterns
  • enhanced confidence, social skills, and self-esteem.
