NOTE: Private classes are temporarily suspended for 2021
Got a tumbler who needs a little extra fine tuning? Private classes may be what you’re looking for.
The purpose of a private class is to provide specific customized instruction to students. We will accelerate an athlete’s understanding of technique and to make their practice as effective as possible by minimizing the repetition of poor technique.
As much as we’d like to think we can turn all kids into amazing tumblers the reality is that there are many factors that influence student success and the speed of progress. These can include student potential, student's willingness to do the necessary work and consistency of regular attendance. In other words, we recommend that all students take private classes with the goal to improve their skills at an accelerated pace. The goal to learn a particular skill (say a back handspring) by a strict deadline maybe unrealistic and promote shortcuts in safety.
How private classes work
Private: (one on one instruction) $35 for 1/2 hour
Semi-private:(two students) $50 for 1/2 hour ($25 per student)
Note: semi-private classes are only available to two students of
similar ability level looking to develop the same skills.
Payments are made in four week blocks before classes start.
(Private class students pay; 4 x $25=$100, Semi-private students pay; 4 x $20=$80)
Refunds and credits
Refunds or credits are not issued for missed classes but we will do our best to provide a make-up class where possible. If one student is unable to attend a semi-private class one week then the second can either cancel the class for that week or choose to pay the full private rate for one week.
All classes are taught by Mark (the boss, head honcho, big cheese.) Mark is a former member of the British national gymnastics team, and assistant coach to the US junior Olympic national team. He has coached kids to the national team level and is the author of three books for gymnasts. He has conducted workshops in more than a thousand gyms in 38 states and Canada. In other words he really knows his stuff.
