Home School Tumbling and Trampoline Classes
Our Home School Tumbling & Trampoline Program is a great way for our home schooled friends to get into the gym and tumble during a time that is created just for them. This allows families with kids spanning a wide variety of ages to come at the same time and still receive great training. We run our class with structured stretching and warm up time, instruction on skills, and then open up equipment so students can practice stills they have been working on... and all with our great coaches who can train and spot as needed. Use as part of your physical education requirement for school or as a reward for a week of school work or just a fun time to burn off some steam!
For ages 2 (parents part of class with 2 year olds) through high school aged students and open to boys and girls. We have 3 trampolines, 60-foot tumble track, 100 ft rod floor, 3 double mini trampoline, rock climbing wall and best of all-coaches who love working with athletes of all ages and abilities! This program runs throughout school year and stops in summer so students can join our regular summer flexpass for continued summer tumbling.
Girls 1st-6th Grade
For girls looking to learn cheer tumbling for their recreational team or just love to tumble, we offer 3-4 classes for the 1st - 6th graders per day! We divide our classes into age and ability so everyone gets the work out they need.
Intro to Tumbling Class - 1 hour
A great place to start for new students to tumbling. Students will be working on building strength and skills for handstands, cartwheels, round offs and lots of standing back handsprings. Once a student has a great cartwheel, awesome round off with a jump back, they will be ready to move up. Coaches come out between each Intro class to discuss progress with parents so you are kept up to date on when your child is ready to move up.
Intermediate/Advanced Class - 1.5 hour
Once your amazing athlete has mastered their Intro skills, they will move up into the Intermediate/advanced class where they will continue to build their strength through handstands, cartwheels, round offs but also work on connecting the running round off to the back handspring. Eventually working on several back handsprings in a row, tucks, layouts and twisting.
If you are new to our program and are unsure where your athlete falls skill-wise, we are happy to offer a free evaluation where we can invite student in and see where their skills are at so we can place them in the class that is best suited for them. Just give the office a call to speak with someone at the front desk for more information or more details on the class structure or description of skills.
Advanced Tumbling Program- 1.5 hour class, 1 or 2x a week
For the athlete who LOVES tumbling and wants to gain skills fast. Must have a min. of 2 back handsprings to enter class.
Jr. High/High School Tumbling
Jr. High/High School Tumbling Class- 1.5 hours
Hard core tumbling and conditioning classes for the junior high and high school students (boys and girls) wanting to keep up their tumbling skills, improve and condition to keep in shape during the cheer season and then again in the off season. All levels of tumbling will be offered and we keep a low coach to student ratio (8:1). These classes are better than private lessons as you have time in-between passes to watch others, use the other stations and equipment there for you to do repetitions to aid in muscle memory and confidence building. Each class is grouped by ability when applicable so everyone can work on the skills they need most. 6th graders can choose to either tumble with the older kids in this class or stay with the younger kids in the intermediate/advanced class- whatever they are comfortable with in during this transitional year.
NEW THIS FALL!!! High School Tumbling Pass:
For our high school students who cheer for their high school, we know scheduling a set tumbling day can be tough with all your cheer commitments. But your coach still wants you to keep tumbling, right? So we are offering our high school cheerleaders the option to take classes with a flexible schedule when needed. Sign up for the day that you think you can make most often and then if you need to do miss for a cheer-related reason, give us a call and we will schedule ou in another lass (space permitting). And since we are moving to a continuous enrollment, monthly billing program, if you need to switch your permanent day to better accommodate your schedule, we candy that at the start of each month if needed (again, space permitting). This way you can keep tumbling through your cheer season which we know is important to keep up those desired skills AND not feel it is a waste of money when you have to miss your class. We've got your back!
High School Squad Classes
We offer many different classes and programs to get you tumbling, keep you tumbling and get you to the next level tumbling. Coaches, take advantage of our group classes so your high school can come in and tumble together during the summer - competitive season. We'll design a class around your schedule to meet your needs while providing excellent coaching staff so your athletes can tumble in a safe and fun environment with coaches that truly care about each cheerleader that walks out on the floor.

Class Descriptions & Explanations:
Little Tumbler Program - Ages 18 months - 6 years old
Even our littlest friends can take tumbling and trampoline classes and learn to do skills like cartwheels, handstands, back handsprings, and skills on the trampoline and double-mini trampoline in our Little Tumblers program at DuPage Cheer & Power Tumbling. Boys and girls are in the same class and our Little Tumbler program has low coach:student ratios lending to more one on one instruction to develop strength, coordination, tumbling and trampoline skills, and of course a love for tumbling and trampoline in a safe and fun environment. For ages 18 months - 3 years old parents come into class with their little ones until they can handle being in class on their own. Once they turn 3, we can put them in the 3-4 year old class.
Classes are offered during the daytime hours where everyone in the gym is just their size so they can focus and learn in a comfortable and safe environment. However, we also have evening and Saturday classes for those Little Tumblers that are in school full day. Check out the school year schedule for days and times. Grab a friend and make the class double the fun! Don't see a class that works for you? Give us a call and we may be able to create a class that fits your needs. JUST ADDED- NEW CLASS TIMES IN THE EVENING FOR OUR 3-4 YEAR OLDS THAT CAN'T MAKE CLASS DURING THE DAY.
