STRETCH N FLEX –This class is designed specifically for cheerleaders looking to improve their jumps, air skills, tumbling, and flexibility! It’s time for cheerleaders to work stretching, flexibility, core strength and body awareness. Although this class is perfect for the “flyers in training”, it is designed to help ALL of our athletes - especially those wanting to increase strength to help with fundamentals in jumps, tumbling and stunts.
JUMP TO FLIP – This class will teach proper techniques with each skill executed. Learn how to connect EVERY jump to a bhs, standing tuck or standing combo tumbling pass. These combination skills are utilized in level 3 – 5 routines, as well as middle school, high school and college cheer. Jump to flip is one of the most important cheer skills necessary for success.
BOYS TUMBLE – Calling all boys – this is a class JUST for you! You asked for it, we delivered! Time for those siblings to have a little piece of extreem cheer all to themselves, no girls allowed. This class will cater to the guys of every age and level for an opportunity to experience tumbling on the blue mat while unleashing the uncanny male ability to land right-side up.
THE COMPLETE ATHLETE – CARDIO CONDITIONING BOOTCAMP – Our Saturday BOOTCAMP is back. Not for the faint of heart! This class is designed to make even those in the very best shape, sweat. Each major muscle group is addressed every class with a weekly focus on cardio work and aerobic activity. The class utilizes various Pilates and Plyometrics methods to increase strength, stamina, and speed. This class is truly helpful for any sport, but specifically designed to push those wanting to advance their over-all strength, muscle definition and stamina. Get yourself season ready!
PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGE – Time to polish up all that skill. Set yourself apart from others by learning the small details that make your good skills look phenomenal. Learn skills and drills helpful at any tryout to give you a leg up on the competition. This class will cover work on Jumps, Dance, Motions, Transitions all of the small cleaning details that most athletes don’t realize they are performing incorrectly. A score sheet requires teams to achieve scores based on 50% raw skill (tumbling, jumps, stunts, motions, dance), but It is ALSO comprised of 50% detail work (expression, performance, transitions, sharpness, cleanliness) that is often times overlooked. Come work on the small details within each of those raw skill sets that will make you the PERFECT ATHLETE to any coach.
SPACE IS LIMITED! In order for the instruction to be most effective, we do have a MAX number of athletes per class – per instructor. This varies class to class based on the level, the type of class, skill requirements, and the instructor. We have done our absolute best to ensure that your athlete will get the most out of his or her class!
