There should be crawling places in class every week. Go under things, over things, uphill and downhill. This also strengthens the shoulder girdle area for upper body strength that is needed in gymnastics and life in general.
There are a lot of children that will get right up as toddlers and walk without spending any time crawling. This isn’t ideal for children as it can stunt their growth. Use items from around your gym or room to make fun crawling stations every week.
Don’t Refer to it as CONDITIONING!
People tend not to like the word …Conditioning. They think of it as doing work. Let’s help teach children to want to get stronger by making it into a GAME. They don’t need to know that we are secretly working out their muscles which will benefit them as they grow. Make it fun for them.
