Tumbling for Youth, MS, HS Wrestlers
Wrestling isn't just about moves, it takes strength, flexibility, power, and tremendous body awareness to win matches.  These tumbling classes will introduce wrestlers to foundational tumbling skills to aid in increased balance, flexibility, strength and agility.  Whether you are just starting out or have had several years on the mat, all wrestlers will benefit from this program.

Level 1: Starting with basic forward/backward rolls and cartwheels, you'll progress towards handstands, front/back walkovers, roundoffs and connecting skills.

Level 2: This breaks down a back handspring into sections, so athletes learn the correct shapes, and proper body control to perform standing, running and combination handsprings. Advancing further, wrestlers continue on their journey to flipping with a focus on tuck shaping and learning how to connect a flip from a back handspring.
