Tumblebugs Program

We have a variety of classes to suit every child!

Children’s classes are split into two programs:  The Tumblebugs for preschool aged children and our Recreational classes for kids seven and older.

Tumblebugs and recreation classes focus on using all the traditional Olympic events: Floor and tumbling, bars, beam, rings and vault.

These events are lesson planned into skills and equipment appropriate for each age and level abilities.

Classes priced in 8 week terms. Standard membership and insurance fees also apply.

Littlebugs

Description: Littlebugs for ages 1 – 3 1/2: This open format class is designed to provide an exploratory environment for children to play and work with their parents as they discover a wide variety of movement possibilities. Children have the opportunity to join structured activities or openly entertain themselves in a safe environment. If you are not ready to sign-up, each Littlebugs class is available at a drop-in rate of $30.00 per class.

Mini Bees

Description: For ages 2 1/2 – 4. This is a 45 minute structured class for children who are ready for more of a challenge.  At this level, children are taken on the equipment in  groups with a dedicated coach, while the parent helps the child understand how to stay with the group and participate successfully. This is a class that teaches skills and how to behave in a class structure as well as gross-motor coordination and social skills through the use of balance beams, mini-trampolines, bars, rings, tunnels, pit, vault, and tumbling mats. Parent participation required

Busy Bees

Description: Busy Bees for ages 3 1/2 – 5:  This is a structured class for children with their parents if necessary. At this level, children are taken on the equipment in groups of 6:1 with a coach. This is a structured class that builds gross-motor coordination and social skills through the use of balance beams, mini-trampolines, bars, rings, tunnels, vault, and tumbling mats.

Grasshoppers

Description: Grasshoppers for ages 4 1/2 – 6: This class is for children who are fully self directed and able to follow the coach’s instructions without parental guidance. We begin to focus more on specific beginning gymnastics moves and equipment while still incorporating plenty of obstacle courses, learning games and exciting skills.

Crickets

Description:  Crickets for ages 5 1/2 – 7: This class is most similar to our beginning recreational gymnastics classes. In Crickets, boys and girls work on the traditional Olympic equipment – Vault, Bars, Beam, Floor, Rings, and P-Bars as well as upper body strength to help with handstands and cartwheels. These classes are 60 minutes long, which allow the kindergarten child to get used to the longer classes. Crickets are good listeners and are preparing to join classes with the Girls or Boys Recreational classes when they are ready.
