Developmental Gymnastics is the basis of the Tumbleweeds motor skill development program. It helps children ages 18 months through 5 years build physical, mental, and social skills that will lead to a lifetime of success. Kids have a great time progressing through friendly and non-competitive classes designed to provide increased skill development as they mature. Tumbleweed classes allow kids to have fun while focusing on achievement at their own pace.
Our trained instructors are sensitive to children’s individual abilities and personalities as they help guide you and your child through the various levels of the program. Kids can enter the program at any age and begin building the skills and self-esteem that will help them be successful now, and in the future.

Mini Weeds – Children aged 4 - 5

The Tumbleweed program will take place in the College of Kinesiology Physical Activity Complex.
