TNT teaches quality gymnastics and cheer! TNT promotes a culture of safety and a healthy respect for the sport of gymnastics.
TNT's Competitive Team is composed of the Men's and Women's Junior Olympic Program, TOPS, Xcel, and Xtreme Cheer. It offers an accelerated form of gymnastics and is designed for those athletes, ages 5 and up, who have a very specific skill set. Candidates or this program are evaluated and selected based on their physical, emotional, cognitive, behavioral, and social readiness. Athletes learn self-discipline, group work, leadership, and good sportsmanship – among many other life skills. At the team level, coaches spend a significant amount of time with our athletes and because of that, we believe part of our job is being a positive role model for these young ladies and gentlemen.
Our first priority is that our coaching staff love children! Second is their gymnastics knowledge and background. Some coaches specialize in preschool, recreational, or competitive levels, and many cross over creating a well- balanced knowledge of the progressions safely followed in gymnastics. With proper instruction, gymnastics and cheer are very safe sports. At TNT, we develop skill progressions develop safely and master the fundamentals to provide a good foundation which prevents injury.
In January of 2014, we decided to look into gymnastics classes offered at TNT. I am forever grateful that we did! She would come out of practice with a smile on her face and couldn't wait to tell me all of the new things that she was allowed to try. The TNT coaches were very good at figuring out just what she could do, rather than skills that she couldn't do. If she was struggling with doing a cartwheel on the beam, then they would encourage her to try something she was good at, like a back walkover or a jump. The coaching staff at TNT has been instrumental in breaking down the steps and talking her through what she needs to do to succeed.
