A & V Rhythmic Club helps children not only becoming stronger and increase their stamina, A & V Club teach children how to become a team player, helping them to communicate and mix better with children and teachers at school. The ability to feel happy and feel whole is not tied to being able to do or accomplish things, but rather, it is directly related to the ability to belong and be a part of the Club. It is gives security and meaning to everyday activities. Children feel more secure when they know that they have others around them who share their goals and care about their progress.
When children feel a sense of belonging and sense of pride in their peers, and their club, they can be emotionally strong, self-assured, and able to deal with challenges and difficulties. This creates an important foundation for their learning and development. Giving children messages of respect, love, approval, and encouragement enables them to develop a positive sense of who they are and a feeling that they have an important contribution to make wherever they are. These messages also give them confidence to voice their views and opinions, to make choices, and to help shape their own learning.
Clothing is integral to the expression of identity and sense of belonging. AV tracksuits were the great tool to help children to be part of the Club.
Though the project was fully funded and helped children to have AV tracksuits, New gymnasts joined squad members since March 2017 and AV club feels we need to renew campaign to meet their needs.
To be able to wear a club tracksuit gives a child /gymnast the pride and confidence to face anything. The A & V Club mission is to identify and support the new generation of rhythmic gymnasts in London. Children whose families can not afford the track suit deserve the same advantages as their more affluent peers
