|Youth Tumbling is a year around program at RiverChase. Program offerings are listed in the current issue of The Beacon. For additional information stop by RiverChase or 636-343-0067.
At the end of each session, instructors advise students which level to sign up for next. The hope of this program is to get students active and give them a fun and fundamental feel for gymnastics and/or tumbling. It is designed to help them discover their own interests as children and if at the completion of each level they have found a true passion, they will leave with the basic understanding necessary to begin at a more competitive or athletc level.
