Hi, I'm looking for a RG school near Punggol, for recreational training. Any recommendations?

Hi,

My 9 year old daughter has been doing artistic gymnastics since kindergarten and has taken part in friendly competitions. She also has dance experience with jazz, tap and ballet. She just recently expressed an interest in trying out rhythmic gymnastics. Can anyone recommend either a school or private coach for her please? Preferably in the east area, near Katong/Marine parade. But am willing to travel a little further if needed.

Came across this article and it reminded me of a girl I saw at a gymnastics competition. A coach was yelling at her so loudly and ferociously that everyone turned to look at them. The poor girl stood there, helpless and nearly in tears. She was about primary school age. I felt so heartbroken for her. Where I came from this would be classified as abuse. If this coach can do that to a child in public, I shudder to imagine what that coach does in the privacy of the gym.

Parents, a few medals, a promise of DSA or even entry to the national team is not worth the lifelong effects of abusive coaching and destroying your child’s self-esteem and self-worth. This applies to all sports, not just gymnastics.

Im trying to expose my girl to more physical activities as she doesnt really like playing outdoors. I thought gym might be good exposure. Just wondering if 4 years is too young an age to get started. My main objective is for her to gain more confidence as she pushes her body and realizes her potential.

My son is a bit older and goes to Alpha Gym at Big Splash on the inner east coast. They have great toddler classes as well.It is quite small (kids seem to like that) but is a proper gym with sprung floor etc
