News & Notes for February 2012

Post date: Feb 18, 2012 7:26:58 PM

As much as it doesn’t look like winter, we are now into the middle of February and into week 9 of our winter session. So much has been accomplished in such a short time. Our balance, coordination and overall skills have improved substantially. Back Handsprings and Aerial Cartwheels are now becoming second nature for all students, Level 1 on up. All the fundamentals of the 3 families of tumbling (front, side and back) have been instructed and are now in place in our minds. Bars is now becoming an easy task as our overall body strength has increased. Many thanks to Mike Lannon and a great job done by all our students.

Skill clinics are still continuing Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 5 to 5:30pm. Remaining are:

Week 9— Back HandSprings

Week 10—A closer look at Bars & Beam

Week 11—Cross Pad Tumbling

Week 12—Review of the basics & the integration of
