Tumbling Classes, All Star Cheer Squad
 

PHILOSOPHY

To provide a safe and positive environment that will encourage each student to develop tumbling skills associated with cheerleading and other activities to the best of their abilities. Our cheer/tumbling program does not utilize all the gymnastics equipment such as beam, vault, and bars, but works on the tumbling floor, mats and trampolines. 

 

OBJECTIVES

**To build strength and flexibility.

** To prepare students for the tumbling/jumps needed to participate in other sports and activities.
