FLIP TOPS TUMBLING AND TRAMPOLINE TEAM
All Flip Top Tumbling Team Members are taught good sportsmanship and the YMCA’s four core character values; Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. They are expected to demonstrate these values in every aspect of their life and in training and competition. They are expected to be good students and maintain an appropriately balanced lifestyle between school, social life and training.
Athlets gain experience in managing their bodies with appropriate nourishment. They learn how to listen to their bodies and proactively respond to important signs of fatigue or injury.
Flip Tops participates in both regional and national events. During this time, our athletes are often exposed to diverse lifestyles and cultures at an early age.
