Flipper’s Gymnastics provides gymnastics instruction to students of all ages. Classes are specific to both age and level of skill.
General Class Information
No classes will run with fewer than four students, and 12 will be the maximum. Multiple coaches may be used for a single class. This will be determined by the age and number of students.
Students must wear gymnastics-appropriate clothing, such as leotards or form-fitting tops and bottoms. Loose-fitting clothing can cause tripping and other hazards which lead to injury. Bare feet are preferred.
