Chalk & Youth Gymnastics Grips
Some of the more important pieces of equipment for gymnastics include grips and chalk. Kids' gymnastics grips offer support for their hands while performing skills on bars or rings, and chalk helps to absorb sweat and improve grip. Both of these items are important for safety purposes. While grips might be needed for kids just getting into gymnastics they'll become quite useful once they start progressing through their levels. Chalk, on the other hand, is used by all gymnasts regardless of age or skill.
Maintaining a solid grip while performing gymnastics on equipment such as kip bars is important for both flawless execution, as well as avoiding mishaps. Chalk helps keep a gymnast's hands dry by absorbing any sweat or moisture. This allows for optimal grip so they can stay on task and avoid having their hands slip. Gymnastics grips are a leather form of protection that helps prevent rips, blisters, and other friction-related injuries.
If you're not sure which type of grip or chalk is best for your child, our coaches are more than happy to assist you in finding the right fit. We want all of our young athletes to have the proper equipment for success in their gymnastics journey. Investing in good gymnastics equipment such as grips and chalk can save your child from injury and discomfort in the long run.
