Summer Tumbling Program

Summer Gymnastics / Tumbling Classes
June 3 – August 10, 2024

tumble84logoCome join us for our Summer Gymnastics / Tumbling Program at Erie Premier Sports. Similar to our school year program, Tumble 84’s goal is to create a safe family environment that is fun, while improving skills as well as maintaining and establishing the fitness of the athlete throughout the summer months. This is also a good time for children new to gymnastics / tumbling to try it for the summer.

Gymnastics / tumbling is a great activity which helps improve physical fitness, as well as helps children learn life skills, such as goal setting, overcoming fear, and it increases a child’s self esteem in a healthy and safe environment.

We have classes for all levels and abilities from Tiny Tumblers to Advanced. We reserve the right to combine classes if less than five participants are enrolled in a particular class. 

Program Cost

  • $135.00 for a 1-hour class, once per week

What to Wear

We get a lot of questions on what your child should wear. We recommend comfortable athletic clothing. If your little one wants to wear a leotard that is great and we cannot wait to see them in it, however it is not mandatory at our gym. The coaches do discourage the wearing of just sports bras. If a sports bra is going to be worn, please have a tank top or t-shirt over it. Please also ensure their hair is tied back and out of the way.
