Studies show that kids who swim are happier and less likely to pick fights with wall-mounted swordfish. Teach a child aquatic sparring skills with today's Groupon to Twigs Kids Gymnastics and Swimming in West Carrollton. Choose between the following options:
- For $13, you get three Bouncing with Books passes (a $27 value). The sessions are Monday from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and children younger than 2 are free with the paid admission of one other child in the family.
- For $85, you get a gym or swim party for up to 10 kids (a $175 value).
Twigs Kids, a sports-training center for children, focuses on teaching athletic prowess and safety savviness in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Bouncing with Books combines story time with open play activities, allowing kids aged 1–6 to leap on trampolines or spring around an inflatable bounce house for an hour under the supervision of a Twigs instructor, burning off energy that would otherwise fuel screaming contests or demands that parents define postmodernism. Action switches gears as tots enjoy a stationary half-hour of stories, crafts, and solid flooring.
Gym or Swim parties entertain up to 10 youths ($10 for each additional partier) with two hours of feasting and calisthenics. Kids spend 75 minutes splashing in a heated indoor pool or tromping through the padded gym before settling down for 45 minutes in a party room. Twigs supplies water bottles, tableware, and drinks while adorning the birthday child in a T-shirt and singing a customized theme song set to the child's choice of Rachmaninoff concertos.
Founded in 1972 as a gymnastics club, TWIGS Kids now resides in a sprawling 20,000-square-foot facility staffed by enthused staffers. The gym’s name, which stands for True Winners in God’s Service, reflects its mission of providing gymnastics, swimming, and cheer activities and instruction for kids ages 3–18 in a Christian environment. Cheer and gymnastics lessons simultaneously bolster students’ flexibility, coordination, confidence, and ability to best invisible friends in monkey-bar competitions. Amid the heated waters of Dolphin Cove, teachers and pupils soak their feet while lifting floating barbells and riding noodle floats during swimming lessons. An in-house café welcomes visitors to recharge their empty fuel tanks with refreshing snacks, while a gift shop displays colorful gym attire from designers including GK Elite Sportswear and Melody Leotards.
