NOTE ABOUT SUMMER TUMBLING CLASSES: We do not have make up classes as we want to keep our coach/athlete ratio appropriate as well as consistency with instruction. We know in the summer people have holidays and may have to miss a class. What we do for our summer session is we charge for one less class. It you end up attending all classes, you get a bonus class this session. This is only for our "tumbling classes" and is not applicable to semi private and private lesson packages.
ACE has designed a comprehensive skill checklist specific to each level. Below is a brief summary of the skills at each level, however the actual scope and sequence of skills is much more detailed. Please speak to our staff to find out more about our unique tumbling program.
