The all new FAITHFULLYFIT! FLIPPERS Gymnastics Program at the Family Life Center will have your children BEAMing with faith & delight as they climb, tumble, balance and stretch their way through class. Our non-competitive environment allows children to move forward at their own pace.  Body Awareness, Strength, Building Friendships, Faith & Confidence are just a few learning aspects that tie into our tumbling program. Lessons are taught in a progressive manner by USA Gymnastic Certified Instructors in which children learn basic concepts and improve on them from week to week utilizing balance beam, tumbling equipment, mini trampolines, and more! As the children master the skills introduced in their level, they will be asked to advance into a suitable class that will continue to challenge them. We believe that an exciting, Christian friendly environment encourages the children to do their best while having FUN!
