Need a Replacement Part?

REPLACEMENT PARTS & ADD-ONS

Knobs:

Replacement knobs for your horizontal bar or balance beam can be purchased for $15.00.

Horizontal Bar and Balance Beam Knobs are covered under a 1 year scratch and dent warranty from Nimble Sports. In 2016 Nimble Sports changed the design of their horizontal bar and balance beam braces to be safer and more reliable, resulting in a change of knob size in these two products.

For products ordered before 2016

Unfortunately we no longer have replacement knobs for these products. Take your knobs (or uprights if your knobs are missing) to your local hardware store, Lowes or Home Depot. You may be able to find a bolt or knob that will fit this space and make your gymnastics equipment easily adjustable again.

Nimble Sports also offers a conversion kit that will convert your old horizontal bar to our newest model, replacing your old uprights and knobs. This kit can be purchase for $119.95.

For products ordered after 2016

You are in luck! We have your knobs in stock! If you have ordered in the last 12 months your purchase falls under warranty and you can receive a new set of knobs for free. If your horizontal bar or balance beam braces are older than 1 year, you can purchase a set of knobs for $15.00.

If you believe for any reason you may have a newer version of our horizontal bar or balance beam braces (purchased from a 3rd party — facebook, garage sale, etc.) send photos of the knobs you currently have to sales@nimblesports.com. This will help us to see if we have the replacements you need.

If you have lost your knobs, please send us a photo of the horizontal bar upright or balance beam brace with a tape measure held across the hole (nut) so we can determine the size that you need. See image below:

The nut on your horizontal bar upright (or balance beam brace) should measure 1/2inch. We do not have replacement knobs for nuts of any other size. The nut must measure 1/2 inch.

Benefits of Team Gymnastics For Your Child | Nimble Sports

The Many Ways Children Benefit From Team Gymnastics  

Involving children in sports offers more than just physical benefits, and gymnastics is one of the best activities for teaching your kids lessons that they can carry into all aspects of their lives — now and in the future. When your children take part in gymnastics, they learn far more than how to perform forward rolls and handstands. 

The following are just a few of the many ways your little gymnast will benefit from practicing the sport in a team setting.

Learning the Basics of a Healthy Lifestyle

Youth gymnastics is a way to instill healthy habits in your kids at a young age. Team gymnastics teaches young athletes that leading an active life is both healthy and fun. When many people think of gymnastics, they often imagine the Summer Olympics. Although few gymnasts ever become Olympians — gymnasts will take away healthy habits that they will continue using throughout their lives. The team atmosphere of group gymnastics also encourages kids to enjoy being around others who enjoy an active lifestyle.

Understanding the Importance of Teamwork

The ability to work well in a team atmosphere is one of the greatest lessons your son or daughter will learn and be able to use for the rest of his or her life. Group gymnastics teaches kids to work as a team toward a common goal. They learn to create routines as a group and support one another through the ups and downs of the sport. These skills are later used in the classroom, workplace and beyond.

Giving and Receiving Support

As a young athlete, it is easy to be preoccupied by personal successes and failures. Team gymnastics teaches children that they can not only learn and draw support from fellow athletes, but they can also teach and provide support. Group gymnastics teaches kids to care about the successes and failures of others as well as how to ask for support when they’re in need.

Handling Wins and Losses

Life is full of successes and failures, whether large or small. Through group gymnastics, your child will learn how to properly celebrate wins and how to handle losses in a fair and mature manner. Team gymnastics is also a setting where having too much drive for an individual win can harm the performance of the team as a whole. Balancing personal desires and the ability to learn from wins and losses are key skills your gymnast can take directly to school, friendships, and eventually future life and workplaces.

Get Your Child Involved

There’s no doubt that group gymnastics offers a variety of physical and mental benefits that can be carried throughout your child’s life. Here at Nimble Sports, we manufacture the highest-quality gymnastics equipment for kids, so your child can practice good habits at home and at the gym in a team setting. Whether you’re looking for your child’s first tumbling mat or a complete home gym setup, our experts will help you find the right equipment for his or her age and skill level. Call 877-MAT-BEAM or browse our website to get your gymnast started today.

Choosing The Right Sport for Your Child

Choosing The Right Sport For Your Child 

If there’s one word that can be used to describe any child, it’s “potential.” Your children are bundles of raw potential. Finding the right outlet for your children is important. Because, the right outlet can influence who your children will become and help shape the rest of their lives. An obvious example of that potential is the near-limitless physical energy your kids likely exert all day. Sports are a popular outlet through which parents try to harness and shape that liveliness. With the right combination of encouragement and enthusiasm, your kids could channel their boundless energy into a lifelong love of sports. That love of sports can give children something they’ll enjoy doing for most of their lives — possibly giving them an opportunity to excel at the highest levels of competition. Yet for your kids to become champions or even just lifelong enthusiasts, they have to begin with choosing the right sport.

A child’s natural excitement for sports can be crushed quickly if he or she chooses to participate in a sport that isn’t suited for him or her. You may want your daughter to experience the same fun you had playing with your friends on the basketball court, but she may prefer the individual focus of karate or gymnastics. Choosing the right sport for your kids may make a difference in whether or not they stick with it for other reasons, as well. For example, your kids may love hockey, but if your family’s budget can’t keep up with the equipment costs, it’s likely your children won’t be able to stay on the ice. You also want to make sure that the sport your children choose gives them the best chance to succeed and continues to challenge them. For example, if your son is stronger than he is swift on his feet, he might have a better time participating in wrestling or football than cross-country or track.

All parents want to help their kids reach their fullest potential. That means helping to guide them toward making the best decisions as to where they want to direct that potential. Choosing the right sport for your kids can mean the difference between finding their passion and staying rooted to the couch. Consult the following guide for some tips about how you can help your kids choose the sport that’s right for them.

A How-To Guide For Selecting The Best Home Gymnastics Equipment

You’ve decided you want your young tumbler or gymnast to be able to practice at home, but now you’re presented with the problem of where to start. This guide will help you create the perfect home gym in a limited amount of space.

Quality home gym equipment encourages your gymnast to advance his or her skills in a safe, comfortable and affordable environment.

The following are a few factors to consider when creating your home gym:

  • Mat considerations: The thickness and dimensions of the mat you choose are more important than most buyers think.  It is important that the mats you purchase provide enough support to prevent injury, and are made to the standard of a competitive gym for your gymnast to practice maneuvers that are more difficult. Nimble Sports offers the best gymnastics mats for home use, which are the ideal thickness to perform a variety of skills, are exactly what you will find at the gym and can be folded for easy storage.
  • Bar considerations: It’s essential to choose horizontal bars that are  table enough for your gymnast yet easy to store when not in use. At Nimble Sports, we offer the best gymnastics bars for home use. These bars are simple to assemble and disassemble, yet strong enough to keep your junior gymnast safe at all times.

 

Using Your Home Equipment
There’s no doubt your son or daughter will be excited to use his or her home gym equipment the moment it arrives.
