Why Did My Child Ring the Bell During Class at Best Gymnastics?

Why did my child ring the bell during class at Best Gymnastics? What does it mean? And why does everyone in the gym clap?

These are all EXCELLENT questions! At Best Gymnastics, we believe in positive reinforcement as a critical tool of success in learning. When a child listens and follows direction to improve a skill or masters a skill depending on their level, their coach will direct them to ‘go ring the bell.’ For a child, this is the ultimate form of recognition because when they ring the bell everyone in the gym claps for them to acknowledge their achievement. Each time a child rings the bell everyone in the gym can see the smile from ear to ear and that they are beaming with pride. It is a very special moment and one that is well earned.
