New to Tumbling & Trampoline? (5yr - Adult)
If your child has never taken gymnastics before, level one is for you. No prior training is required to enter this class. This class offers structured introductions to beginner gymnastics skills on tumbling, trampoline, and double mini. Athletes in this class will learn the mechanics of fundamental skills and the appropriate terminology and description of skills. On tumbling, they will learn cartwheels, hand stands, and other inverted skills. On trampoline, they will learn how to correctly bounce and how to execute skills like tucks, straddles, and pikes in the air. On double mini, they will learn how to transition from running to bouncing on an elevated surface all while performing essential entry level skills. The emphasis on this class is to learn the progressions required to practice harder skills and advance into higher level classes.
Recreational Tumbling & Trampoline (5yr - Adult)
Recreational Tumbling & Trampoline is our program that offers progression based classes which require the completion of each level to advance into the next level. We offer classes from Level 1 to Level 4+. Each athlete will have their skills tested, monitored, and charted and will be presented with a certificate of completion when the coach feels that they are ready to move into the next level. Athletes in these classes will be working towards stringing together multiple consecutive skills on all three events and eventually introducing twisting and spinning into their skills.
