Program Information

What do I need to bring to class?

A leotard is required to be warn to class for safety purpose. When spotting an athlete, their t-shirt can become wrapped around the instructors arm causing not only injury to the instructor but also the athlete. Leotards are sold in the tumbling room and must b purchased with cash or check. Socks are to be worn by all athletes when using the trampolines. A water bottle can be brought to class to get quick drink in-between events.

What does the Illinois Valley Tumbling Program offer?

The Y offers a tumble trak, double-mini trampoline, trampoline, rod floor, and foam floor. All equipment is used during each class to benefit and expand your child’s learning.
