How to combine rhythmic gymnastics and school
The combination of rhythmic gymnastics club and high school is one of the most complicated tasks for the parents of the future rhythmic gymnastics champions. And it’s no wonder, as good training at RG club requires 12-18 hours per week; and the major part of the spare time is spent for everyday training, but when should the girls do their home assignment?
Very often lack of time has a negative impact on the progress in study, this formed the famous myth saying that regular school and serious sport training are incompatible. However, in case parents find a rational approach to this subject, a young gymnast can show great results in both schools!
The solution of this task is in the compliance with the regime. It’s important to inure a child to this regime, don’t wait for the day when the problem in regular school occur; when you child enters rhythmic gymnastics club, explain to her that the compliance with the regime is important for the gymnast as it leads to great results. Provide an example of the famous rhythmic gymnastics stars, who comply with their regime without fail, as this is an integral oart for success achievement.
The most complicated thing is to calculate and allow time for tarining, home assignment and rest. At the first you should support little gymnast and strictly control her compliance with the schedule you develop until she gets used to doing necessary things in the right time and until she complies with the schedule without your control. It’s a good idea to talk to the teachers of the regular school, ask them about the grades, discuss the possibility of private tuition. Pay attention to the fact that your future champion should sleep not less than 8 hours a day, she should go to the bed not later than at 10pm.
When you help your gymnast to pack her bags for competition held in another city or country, remind her to take some schoolbooks with her. So that she could review the material they studied at school.
Never punish your child for bad school grades forbidding her to attend the training. If she’s good at her school study, give her generous praise. Once in a while emphasize that the compliance with the regime distinguish a sportsman from a regular schoolchild, who doesn’t go in for sport.
The main purpose is to explain to your girl that the study at regular school and training in RG club are equal in their importance. A schoolgirl, who is a master of her time, will be able to combine professional rhythmic gymnastics training with university study. And there are great amount of examples!
