The sport of rhythmic gymnastics requires its athletes to throw and catch, roll, rotate, and twirl their different apparatus in the air or on parts of their bodies. Because of this, eye-hand coordination is one of the basic skills a beginner rhythmic gymnast must learn before she could do well at her chosen sport. This should go hand in hand with her balance, flexibility, and strength.
Sleep, like other things our kids’ bodies need, is most of the time overlooked when talking about the factors that contributes to the success of our children in their chosen sports. When talking about health, also, most parents only think about what they feed their children or how much exercise their child does. What most of us parents do not realize is that the amount of time our children spend not exercising or training and is instead spent in sleeping is as important as everything else.
