RECREATIONAL TUMBLING CLASSES
Recreational Tumbling Classes
AMP Athletics’ Tumble classes offer tumbling instruction for athletes of all ages and skill levels. Our classes run 60 minutes and consist of dynamic stretching, skills warm up, conditioning, stations for standing and running tumbling. Classes maintain an 8:1 ratio in order to allow every athlete to receive quality instruction from their coaches. The coaches at AMP Athletics’ are not only very well trained, they are required to maintain Concussion and CPR certifications as well as current training’s for tumbling levels they teach.
AMP Athletics' coaching staff implements new and improved tumbling techniques they have received through extensive staff training over this past year.
