Intro to Tumbling

This class follows a curriculum specifically designed for older athletes that have not mastered the foundational skills or that are new to tumbling. Allowing them to learn the shapes, concepts, body control, strength, flexibility & confidence to progress more safely and faster creating the proper foundation for future years of tumbling. All athletes ages 7-14 years of age without a standing back handspring will start in this class.

All athletes new to Empire Athletics will be required to start in a class for the skills they currently have, not working towards. For example, an athlete with a standing back handspring will start in the Beginner, Level 1 Advanced, class instead of the Intermediate, Level 2, class. This allows Empire Athletics coaches to evaluate, clean techniques, and build confidence for this level before moving onto the more advanced skills.
