Tralee Gymnastics Club is closed from 1st September, 2022. Check out the JOIN page for more information.
Tralee gymnastics welcomes everyone. We take children from 2 years and cater through all ages up to adult.
We believe that children should be given the opportunity to experience different sports. Gymnastics is great fun but is also fundamental to all sports. Besides the physical benefits, it also teaches children many life skills, patience, perseverance, self-discipline, raises self-esteem and an awareness of others.
Movement is essential for brain development and bone health.
Gymnasts learn body and spatial awareness. They learn how to tighten muscles, how to stretch. They learn balance, strength and flexibility, muscle endurance, all necessary for a life free of issues like back pain, etc.
Gymnasts learn how to interact with other children in a neutral, fun filled environment. They learn to take their place in a line, to wait to have their go, to give others the safe space they need to perform skills, to be aware of others when running, etc. They are taught to encourage and cheer each other.
Gymnastics requires time to develop skills. It requires practice and concentration and commitment. Gymnasts learn a skill and then learn how to progress the skill, how to improve it and how to perfect it. They learn perseverance, hard work and patience.
Gymnastics gives children an opportunity to learn skills they would not have the chance to do at home – to walk on a high beam, to swing on the bars, to vault, to learn somersaults, flips, etc. Children are encouraged to try a skill and praised for their effort by their coaches and other gymnasts.
“Absolutely fabulous club and teachers. My two kids have attended for the last 3 to 4 years. It’s very well organised and they continue to enjoy attending. Highly recommended”
“Tralee Gymnastics Club have encouraged my daughter’s love of exercise. She has become more confident and capable over the last number of years, with the help of Theresa and the coaches within the club. ”
“My three children have been attending gymnastics with Tralee Gymnastics Club for the past four years. They are 8, 7and 5. In those four years they have gone from the toddler group and advanced along. They absolutely love going. Theresa, John and all the team are really great with all the children. They create a fun environment in which the kids can learn and progress. There is never any pressure on performance and my children look forward to every class. Initially, my children just ran around and let off steam and I was concerned about them not “doing what they should. However, it was never an issue with the team and they allowed for this blowing off steam and gently guided them back to the exercises. They have an amazing work ethic and my children love going”
“Starting gymnastics from toddler age has been an amazingly positive experience. From learning how to take turns, respect each other, their bodies and their trainers. Becoming knowledgeable on how to position hands and arms making daily life safer. We have two wonderfully active children, building on the core strength and skills that gymnastics has given them. I know this will stand to them for life. A huge thank you to the team who have gone the extra mile to educate our children”.
