Improve coordination, balance, and body awareness while building confidence. This program encompasses all aspects of tumbling, from those who spend time in cheerleading to those who simply want to learn to tumble rather than engage in all aspects of gymnastics.

Pre-school Tumbling (ages 3-5)      Mondays or Wednesdays 5:30 pm

Our preschool program proudly offers a Tumbling program for children 3 to 5 years of age and is creatively designed to promote body awareness and self-esteem through tumbling exercise. Our program aims to increase each student's individual awareness, coordination, and flexibility. 


Beginner Tumbling (ages 6+)         Mondays or Wednesdays 6:00 pm 

Emphasis is placed on basic body mechanics and skill development with strength and flexibility. Participants will be taught the skills to accomplish a cartwheel, forward roll, backward roll, handstands against the wall, all while increasing the participant's strength and flexibility. 


Intermediate Tumbling (ages 6+)   Mondays or Wednesdays 6:30 pm 

A more difficult skillset will be taught at this level with the focus on body mechanics and skill development with round-offs, aerials, handstands, and backhand springs while increasing strength and flexibility. Basic skills such as cartwheel, forward roll, and handstand against the wall are needed to participate in this course. (Children must be able to complete all of the beginner skills to participate in this class).

Gym & Swim

At the Mansfield Area YMCA, it is our desire to provide quality programs and services to youth and families in the community. Homeschooling your children is a great undertaking for a parent, and the YMCA wants to help ease that burden by providing weekly extracurricular activities for your child or children to participate in. Our Homeschool Gym and Swim program is a great way to give parents a break during the day and the kids a chance to be active!
 

Homeschool Gym and Swim helps to promote lifelong fitness in a positive environment with activities including sports, non-competitive games, and a structured swim program. Pool time involves a combination of free time in the water and swim instruction. Gym time allows youth to participate and learn new sports, play various games with other youth, and make new friends!

New this year will be two program sessions for your convenience. Each session will consist of 30 minutes of structured pool activity and 30 minutes of structured gym activity. Ages 3-12 are welcome to participate (Preschool ages 3-5, School-Age 6-12).

                                                                                                                                                                                  Classes:
