Two big events are coming up at our fave gym, Carolina Flipz, and if you’ve got a cheerleader or gymnast in the house, you’re going to want to mark your calendars. They’re at the PERFECT time for spring cheerleading tryouts.
Back Handspring Blitz
First up is the Back Handspring Blitz, a back handspring intensive that will give your gymnast, dancer, cheerleader the jump start they need to getting their back handspring, which is harder than it looks! ;-) Campers have the flexibility of doing 1, 2, or all three days. Each day the coaches break down the form and technique of the back handspring in order to prepare the mind for what the body is trying to accomplish. In order to prevent muscle soreness each day, they work on different drills, skills, and combinations in order to build up their strength. The BHS Blitz is how my daughter FINALLY, after years of trying, landed her back handspring. The coaches are unbelievably patient and kind – I can’t say enough awesome things about this blitz!
February 17th – January 19th 2:30pm – 4:30pm
One, two, or three day options are available.
$50/Day or $125 for all three days
Ages are 6 to 17 years old.
Next up is the Tuck Tech, which is a three day training clinic to teach the PROPER technique for the back tuck, a major skill for cheerleaders and gymnasts. My daughter can’t wait for this. She’s been working on her tuck for awhile and is determined to master it. Just like the Back Handspring Blitz, participants can participate in one, two, or all three days. Fingers crossed for a back tuck grand finale at the Perry house!
