Our Tumbling Program
Stars Vipers Focus Groups
The Stars Vipers Tumbling Program, also known as FOCUS Groups, goal is to help every child build confidence in their tumbling skills while making sure each child feels safe and included in the program. FOCUS Groups instruct athletes at a 4:1 athletes to instructor ratio. We feel this is the optimal ratio for proper instruction that gives athletes and instructors the ability to connect, critique and properly train to gain skills. The coaches of Stars Viper believe that every child can accomplish anything if they put their mind to it. Our highly trained, certified coaches ensure every member of our team is safe, develops their skill, and—most importantly—has fun.
