Students required to use most equipment in the gym each 12-week quarter.
In the beginner class, students learn the basics of proper jumping, bouncing, and trampoline skills. They are also introduced to artistic gymnastics apparatus. Beam, bars, floor and vault for girls and bars, floor, vault, rings, mushroom and parallel bars for the boys.
Intermediate is a 2 hours class that allows more time for strength training and conditioning. Progressions toward flipping and twisting on trampolines is taught along with higher level skills on apparatus.
Multiple twisting and somersaulting skills are developed at this level using a variety of assistance technologies (e.g., overhead spotting rigs and bungies). Off axis flipping and twisting on floor is taught along with a continued focus on strength and conditioning.
Our Outreach Program takes equipment and instruction to local schools.
