Competitive Trampoline & Tumbling Team
Competitive team is for athletes who wish to reach the
next level in their gymnastics and begin to compete.
We are a USA Gymnastics gym and compete in USAG sanctioned meets in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, and more, including the USA
Gymnastics Junior Olympics National Championships.
Athletes are invited to team based on their hard working positive attitude, listening skills, their gymnastics skill level, attendance and space available
Athletes on team work on skills required to compete on trampoline, double mini trampoline and power tumbling. We strive to help the athletes grow in their confidence as they learn new skills, grow as a teammate and push themselves and others to progress.
Sunflower Gymnastics has 4 different groups we place our athletes in.
Division 1 includes athletes working on levels 8 or higher.
Division 2 includes athletes working on levels 6-7.
Division 3 includes athletes working on levels 5 or below.
Team Prep includes athletes who we have identfied as students whom have shown us the work ethic and attitude required to be on team, but still have some work to do on the skills before competing.
Events are; Trampoline, which consist one or two 10 skill passes, depending on the level; Power Tumbling, which can be two 4 to 8 skill passes, depending on the level; and double mini trampoline, which consist of two 2 skill passes.
Trampoline & Tumbling Gymnastics Consists of:
Trampoline, Power Tumbling, Double Mini Trampoline
Intermediate - Advanced Class
Students who have reached a more advanced level are invited to these classes to continue and advance their skills at a higher level.
More emphasis is put on the round offs, back handsprings, aerials, back tucks on the floor.
On the trampoline athletes work on advanced flipping and twisiting skills.
Students in first grade and older, (kindergarten and older in Burlington) will learn basic tumbling skills, such as headstands, handstands, cartwheels, and back bridges and more advanced skills, such as back handsprings.
In addition to basic tumbling, they also work on some balance beam, gymnastics bar, rings, springboard, vaulting and tumbling trampoline.
Along with tumbling skills, students will learn basic trampoline skills, such as jumps, front drops, back drops, and twisting skills. Students will also work on more advanced skills, such as front flips, back flips and routines.
The recreational classes are a wonderful fit for students that are in the beginning to intermediate stages. As always, building the students self confidence is key in our instruction.
This class is for students that are Kindergarten age children, 4 1/2 to 6 years old.
This class helps the students transition from tots class to hour-long class
and gives new young students a good foundation in the basics.
Focus will be on basic tumbling and trampoline skills, apparatus work
and class behavior.
This Instructor led 1/2 hour gymnastics class is for ages 3-4.
Students work on headstands, handstands, forward rolls, backward rolls, cartwheels, trampoline safety, jumps, seat drops, puppy drops, tummy drops and beginning trampoline routines.
Learning to put several skills together in a sequence is also used to help those growing brains.
Helping the students to listen and learn from their instructors is a goal of this class.
Me & My Grown Up
This is a great class for the young child and adult to enjoy time together exploring movement and starting to understand their little bodies.
The class is directed by instructor, yet parents work directly with the child.
This class will introduce the children to basic gymnastics positions,
simple tumbling skills, and a variety of gymnastics equipment.
In addition to learning gymnastics, the children will also learn valuable
social skills, like following directions and taking turns.
