Tumble & Cheer

TumbleCheer_blueA message from Coach Leigh,

Welcome to Frederick Tumble and Cheer!  My tumbling programs are designed to bring your child the absolute best in tumble instruction.  With over 20 years of coaching experience; I am dedicated to developing the full potential of every athlete in my program.  I offer a variety of tumbling classes and clinics based on your child’s current age and ability level.

I am proud to be a part of the Frederick Gymnastics Club family and all that its’ facility has to offer.  Our gym is equipped with two spring floors, two in-ground trampolines, a tumble track and rod floor.  A fully stocked gym with every mat and spotting device available allows me to offer the safest possible learning experience for your child.  All students will be working towards their tumbling goals by breaking skills down into drills that promote safe learning and proper gymnastics progression.  There is only one way to teach tumbling…the SAFE way!!

Classes are offered weekly on Monday and Wednesday evenings.  I encourage all athletes to attend classes on both evenings.  Twice weekly training greatly improves strength, flexibility and tumbling ability.

If you have any questions about class placement or program details please contact me.  Communication between coaches, athletes and parents is critical for success!

I look forward to working together,

Coach Leigh
