TUMBLING CLASS PROGRAM
The South Jersey Storm Tumbling Class Program consists of professional and USASF-certified tumbling instructors who will teach proper skill progression-based classes to advance athletes through tumbling levels 1-5. Athletes will increase the number of skills they learn and master in each level that contribute to their strength, flexibility, and overall body control and awareness to assist them in achieving their ultimate tumbling goals. Athletes progress through the levels (colors) of tumbling as they master skills utilizing proper technique.
