Recreational Tumbling & Gymnastics

Both recreational tumbling & gymnastics programs promote strength, flexibility, endurance, confidence, fitness and fun. While recreational (non-competitive) programs are fitting for anyone, there are a few things to consider when deciding which level we will place your athlete.

When considering which level your athlete fits within our recreational program, coaches look for the following traits:

    • Physical Strength the child​’s perform​ance​ strength exercises such as pull-ups, leg lifts, sprinting, push-ups, sit-ups,and hollow body holds.

    • Flexibility the ​athlete’s body flex​ib​ility ​& ability to master each skill level.

    • Basic Skills –​ ​the ​athlete’s tumbling & gymnastics fundamentals​, ​the ​athlete’s time​ spent in a class to master the basics​, knowledge of basic tumbling & gymnastics.

    • Motivation the ​athlete’s perceived desire to learn and succeed.

    • Coach-ability the ​athlete’s ability to​ listen to corrections and to apply ​corrections & the ​athlete’s wil​l​ing​ness to take a few steps back to fix old skills before learning new skills​.

    • Age while we cannot guarantee each member will be within a couple of years of your athlete, we do try to place kids in skill level appropriate classes giving primary consideration to skill level & secondary consideration to the age of our members.
