SPECIALTY CLASSES

 

​Tumbling classes have a 1:8 coach to athlete ratio. Athletes will work on tumbling technique and advancing their tumbling skills. Our classes are a 45 minute structured session, once a week. We have multiple classes to choose from on different nights of the week that accommodate our competitive team practice schedules. We recommend our classes to all of our competitive team members, however classes are open to non-members as well. Classes are divided by level. Athletes must have mastered their skills in the previous level to be eligible for the class. No exceptions will be made for this rule. All classes are age 6+. We offer classes of the same level on different nights to suit your needs. If you choose level 1 tumbling a. on Tuesdays - you will be enrolled in the Tuesday night class only (level 1 tumbling b. is on Thursday nights - but is the SAME level). If you would like to attend tumble class more than once a week you must register for both "a. and b." classes.

Tumbling classes are based on a month to month commitment. Our classes run from October 7th 2019-April 9th 2020. Once registered, we require 30 days notice to cancel enrolment from a class on the 1st of the month for the following month. The monthly costs of our classes vary depending on the class due to scheduled gym closures and holidays. Tumbling tuition is charged on the 1st of every month. Members must have a credit card on file for their class payments or can pay with post-dated cheques. Please see below for class options and prices:

Monday Classes

Flyer Class

Mondays 4:45pm-5:30pm

All athletes welcome - Not just flyers! Highly recommended for athletes in flying positions on their teams.

Athletes will be lead through warm ups, conditioning, and drills geared specifically toward improving muscle groups which are most important to flying in cheerleading. The flyer must have strong ankles, knees, hip flexors, and core muscles. The class also focuses on safely improving full body flexibility, specifically hamstrings, quads, hips, back, and shoulders. The strengthening of these elements are then incorporated into skills and drills within the class which simulate cheerleading flying skills that athletes may be executing on their teams. If the athlete is not a flyer, this class will still be beneficial in improving their overall strength & flexibility.
