Progressing

At Paramount Tumbling & AcroGymnastics it is our goal to create a thriving, positive, self-esteem-building atmosphere for all of our students. We offer a building block progression of skills in a structured level program. We want students and parents to be able to easily monitor the progress that is being made.

At Paramount Tumbling & AcroGymnastics we have five different recreational levels: Introduction to Tumbling, Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, and Power Tumbling (1,2,3). Within each level, there are a number of gymnastics skills that must be mastered before moving on to the next level. We do formal testing once every two months; however, once a student has mastered all of the skills, he or she can be promoted to the next level at any time. Upon promotion, each student will receive a certificate of achievement for the appropriate level. Setting specific goals allows the student to see the progress made and nothing motivates like progress!
