It’s no secret that boys and girls develop differently, therefore we recognize that we need to meet the needs of young male athletes separately from girls if that’s what works better for the athlete. For this, we offer a boys curriculum that focuses on building power quickly without completely compromising necessary basics. With two basic factions, Boys Beginner, and Boys Advanced, students will be assessed in order to determine what skills may be safely developed.
Boys Beginner Skills:
● Standing Back Handspring
● Round-off back Handspring
Boys Advanced Skills:
● Standing Tuck
● Standing Series Back Handsprings
● Round-off Tuck
● Round-off Back Handspring
● Individual skills may be worked on at the coaches discretion after an assessment of the athlete’s ability.
