Frequently Asked Questions


Tumbling can be a positive influence in so many areas like creating healthy habits, focus, and brain development. Below are some other benefits!

  • Hand-eye coordination (gross and fine motor development)
  • Keeping Active (strength, balance, flexibility)
  • Self-esteem (from accomplishments)
  • Healthy Cognitive function (problem solving)
  • Body awareness (may help outside of tumbling)

Our classes are organized by ability level. By separating classes by skill, it allows our instructors to be most effective in their teaching as they can appropriately teach children who share common developmental standards.

Depending on the age and experience of your child, we have offerings from preschool to the highest level of tumbling classes. If your child has little to no experience that’s ok! We recommend starting in our beginner level classes. If your child has some experience or if you have any other questions, you can reach out to our Tumbling Class Director and he’ll be happy to direct you in the right direction! 

Every athlete is different! Some may learn a skill in weeks, while others may take months. The most important thing to remember is that if there is a good progression system in place, then they will be learning the skill safely. Always remember that the body comes before the skill. This means that physical attributes such as flexibility, strength, balance, etc., need to be mastered before someone can achieve a complicated skill.

The World Elite Tumbling program has a set checklist of skills that you will have access to through your Jackrabbit Parent Portal. That checklist has a number of skills that need to be attained with a certain level of mastery before they are able to advance to the next class. Once they’re completed, your child will receive a class advancement card!
