Human Springs Team classes for Homeschoolers
The Homeschool Human Springs Team class is for kids who are interested in learning new things and who are comfortable jumping into deep water. Experience in diving, tumbling, trampoline, gymnastics and/or dance is a great benefit, but not a requirement. Each 3-month session we will offer optional competitions to allow the kids to show off their new and improved skills.
