Sessions are offered for ages 2-4, ages 5-7, and ages 8-11. The Tiny Tumblers session is for children younger than 3 accompanied by an adult who can support them as their skills develop. A mix of activities on mats and equipment such as bars, beam, tunnel, and mini trampoline create a comprehensive experience. Instructor Kasey Wilcox brings many years of competitive gymnastic experience and coaching as well as a passion for the sport to the tumbling classes.
Youth Boot Camp
Our boot camp for youth ages 6-12 mimics an adult boot camp experience — warm up, stretching, group activities and partner work — at a level that is appropriate and fun for kids. This class is taught by CSF trainer Marcus Haywood, a certified functional strength coach and certified physical trainer adept at designing programs that inclusively serve all participants. CSF’s youth boot camp incorporates full body cardiovascular and strength workouts and fitness education in a team atmosphere that encourages motivation and discipline. Your young Boot Camper will have the opportunity to work on building endurance, muscle, coordination, and balance – key ingredients for success in sports they may participate in and for overall good health. Confidence is another benefit of the boot camp experience. And they’re also likely to add a few new friends to their network!
