Their vault skills include punching the board with both feet, a squat on to a block and donkey kicks.

Recreational Gymnastics classes are segmented by age and skill level. We offer regular gymnastics (any of the “stars” classes), cheer and tumbling, and advanced training.
Future Stars (ages 6-7)
Future Stars continue to learn gymnastics in a fun, safe, and positive environment. Skills taught include cartwheels and rolls, handstands, and lead up drills for back handsprings. On the beam, students work on cartwheels and round-off dismounts. We’ll introduce handstand flat back vaults and back hip circles on bars. Students are evaluated throughout the year to track their progress and earn a trophy when they advance to the next level.
Rising Stars (ages 6-13)
The Rising Stars curriculum covers three levels, from beginning to intermediate to advanced. Students develop at their own pace through the levels. Skills taught include cartwheels, handstands and rolls, front and back handsprings, aerials, and round-off back handsprings. On beam, we progress from round-off dismounts and cartwheels to handstands, turns, leaps, back walkovers, and advanced dismounts. Students will continue to strengthen fundamental bar progressions to help in the process of learning more advanced skills, such as kips, clear-hip circles, and flyaways. On vault, students progress from handstand flat backs to front handsprings and more. A strong emphasis is placed on ensuring students continue to develop and maintain excellent form and technique as they master more advanced skills on all events.

Advanced Tricks with Coach Chris (ages 13-17)

Our tumbling classes are taught by former college cheerleaders. We’ve had hundreds of cheerleaders from area schools in Hunterdon County learn their tumbling skills from us.
