You can award children with reward stickers at the end of a class for trying, listening, and improving. Award certificates can also be used each month or year for the best student in each of the following categories each specific period.

When I was a kid I loved gymnastics. I would train nearly every day for hours each day. I loved to receive recognition, as do most children. It could have been a compliment, an award certificate, a medal, and once I was lucky enough to receive a big trophy which really made me feel proud. That made me train even harder and push my body more than I would have. It is amazing how positive encouragement motivates you to continue and give it all you have. I never had the potential to be really good. I started too late and looking back wasn’t really good enough but I still see the importance of sending kids to gymnastics and training as often as you can. Studies have shown that kids who play sports and train often are very much less likely to do drugs or drop out of school. Taking part in any sport keeps kids motivated and disciplined. It teaches them the importance of setting goals and working towards reaching them. Gymnastics helps children develop flexibility, stamina, strength, and other important skills. I hope that these gymnastic certificates will help motivate your gymnasts and keep them practicing this fun and challenging sport.
