KinderBounce (4–K5) & Beginner TnT (1st-3rd, 4th & up)
Participants will learn basic tumbling and skills, including positions, drills, hurdles, rolls, and basic support skills (cartwheels and handstands).

Flexibility, strength, and coordination are also developed for higher level learning. (60 minutes)
Advanced Beginner TnT (1st–3rd, 4th & up)
Participants will continue to master fundamental skills, as well as skill variations, including handstand rolls, cartwheel variations, round-offs and handspring drills. They will continue to practice proper falling, landing, and jumping techniques, and will have the opportunity to present these skills on the trampoline. (75 minutes)
Novice TnT (1st & up)
Participants will have mastered basic fundamental skills and will focus on building strength, coordination, and flexibility. The skills will be developed through the use of drills and progressions to work on handsprings and handspring connections. Drills and progressions for somies will also be taught, as well as trampoline skill combinations. Students are recommended to attend this class two times a week at this level, as repetition of skills and body positions is important for learning and progressing. (90 minutes)
Athletes that have already mastered the back handspring and front tuck, will begin working more advanced skills. For example, multiple back handsprings, back tucks, and much more. Participants will continue improving tumbling and trampoline form and technique. Athletes will learn basic passes/routines for the beginning and novice levels of competition in power tumbling, trampoline, and double-mini trampoline. Participants are expected to practice twice a week and should have an interest in a future with our competitive team. (90 minutes)
