Our Club Gracia Gymnastics; a club serving a region of passionate athletes. Gracias roots stretch back 15 years. We began with limited equipment and membership, but we were not limited in dedication and passion. The club has seen steady growth since its inception and we currently boast a membership of between 150-200 athletes. Like many clubs in NL we started in one community and began servicing a dozen. We are grateful as a club to have come together in this way and work hard each day to instill in our membership the self-confidence and drive to bravely take on new challenges and, over time, believe in themselves. Empowerment is at the heart of the club, but we never forget the importance of having FUN! Gymnastics: Gymnastics is a complex competition involving the performance of exercises requiring physical strength, flexibility, power, agility, coordination, grace, balance and control. Participation in sports can help build self-esteem and confidence, can motivate children to excel academically and can help build social skills. Participation also teach children the benefits of goal-setting and practice. Participation in gymnastics helps children become physically active, and stay fit and healthy. Taking part in any type of physical activity significantly reduces the risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease in adulthood. The literature on youth sport stresses the positive effects of participation in learning the important life skills of goal setting and time management combined with enjoyment; the development of a strong sense of morality; and the development of an appreciation of diversity. Gracia is also one of the only year round activities available in this region highlighting further its necessity to the community.
We offer recreational, pre-competitive and competitive gymnastics programs, as well as elementry and junior high parkour. Our programs help children develop work ethic, discipline, communication, and teaches them how to be a team player, all while having fun and learning new skills!
A program that helps every child reach their full potential by incorporating play & games into learning.
