No classes will run with fewer than three 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 required to prevent slipping on the apparatus.
Gym Tots and Tiny Tumblers are parent/guardian-participation classes. An adult is in the gym taking the class with the student. They are designed for learning beginner gymnastics skills, partner games, and lots of fun!
Little Rockers and Rockin' Rollers classes are designed for preschoolers learning basic skills.
Classes for kindergarteners and older are organized into Step 1, Step 2, Step 3, Step 4, and Advanced to provide a narrower range of abilities in each class. Previous Flipper’s students' class recommendation can be found on the Parent Portal; new students to Flipper’s will begin in Step 1 or be evaluated for higher placement.
Step 1 classes are designed for students new to gymnastics or still working to master basic skills.
Step 2 classes are designed for advanced beginner students (by recommendation only).
Step 3, Step 4, and Advanced classes are designed for students working on higher level skills (by recommendation only).
Trampoline & Tumbling classes are designed for students just looking to learn/improve tumbling skills. Bars, balance beam, and vault are not used in this class. They are excellent for dancers and cheerleaders.
Food is not permitted in the gym. The only beverage allowed inside is water. Students should bring a water bottle inside and leave it on the cubbies, but water should not be brought onto the mats. Shoes are not permitted in the gym past the entry area. Parent observation must not interfere with class flow.
