Recreational Gymnastics and Tumbling

Our recreational gymnastics program is designed for girls and boys of all ages and abilities. Our philosophy is to teach gymnastics as a lifetime sport. Classes are specific to age and ability level so gymnasts can progress at their own pace. Children will develop discipline, perseverance, self-confidence, strength, and flexibility with a spirit of play and fun.

Tumblebugs

Classes for our youngest gymnasts are structured around a theme and use skill-builder equipment such as wedges, octagons, mini bars, and floor beams to incorporate fun and imagination. Morning, evening, and weekend classes are offered.

Tumbling & Cheernastics

Tumbling classes are offered for cheerleaders and anyone looking to improve their tumbling skills and flexibility (gymnastics equipment is not used). Flip Flop Clinics include drills to work towards or perfect back handsprings. Non-competitive Cheernastics focuses on cheers, jumps, stunts, and short dance routines.
