Competitive Tumbling & Trampoline • GET SCHEDULE
Competitive Tumbling is for those who want to take this sport to the next level! Regardless of which level they start out, children as young as 3 years old are able to take the skills their current tumbling and trampoline skills and show their stuff with others of the same age and skill level. We compete around Southern Illinois with many other gyms associated with the USTA.
Taking classes on Tumbling & Trampoline for exercise or general knowledge, like Recreational Tumbling focuses on, is great and is its own reward; however, Competitive Tumbling helps motivate students to set personal goals and get fair feedback on their progress from professional judges in our sport. You are able to join the team anytime and at any skill level!
When you sign up for Competition Tumbling, you will have a regular tumbling/trampoline class to work on new skills and also keep sharp on previously learned skills. Then your child will attend a special class each week to come together with the whole team and work on the specific set of skills that they will use when they compete at each Competition Meet throughout the year. Summer is the best time to sign up for Competitive Tumbling!!! We raise “year-around athletes”, so when we are not competing, we are training for next coming season!

BOYS ONLY! Trampoline class simply focuses on trampoline basics like tuck jumps and seat drops and then works to build a strong foundation to add more difficult skills like single and double flips and twisting flips.
