young + strong
The most empowering, non-competitive, confidence-building gymnastics program out there. Strength and fun and smiles were all that mattered at the end of year "mini meet".
There are many reasons that I never saw myself as a "gymnastics parent", mostly due to the fact that I never did it as a child. Combine that with the perceived drama and bodily harm (both physical and mental) that is often associated with gymnastics and young girls and, well, I was hesitant.
What I didn't know is that there are coaches and programs out there who are ONLY about building confidence, having fun, challenging your limits and creating a space where everyone belongs. We were lucky enough to find one of those programs.
