It’s time for your little tumbler to spread his or her wings and flip. At this age, children are ready to participate by themselves. Cypress Academy uses the sport of gymnastics as a tool to challenge children to expand their developing capabilities. Each preschooler will strive to advance through 4 different levels: Yellow Fish, Green Turtles, Red Lobsters, and Blue Sharks.
We have 9,000 square feet completely dedicated to preschool with all the Olympic events sized down for an easier learning experience. The directors of the preschool program coordinate the week-to-week activities, the events, and the skills each class will work. This curriculum creates a fun and progressive experience for each and every child.
Here your gymnast will be introduced to the basic skills in gymnastics on all four women’s Olympic events (Vault, Bars, Beam, and Floor). We also introduce conditioning appropriate for the gymnasts age, which helps them to develop the strength necessary to perform the skills required at this level.
Our Girls Program is divided by age and skill level. Our girls Kinder through 1st Grade is called our STARZ program and is divided into four different levels; RED, BLUE, PURPLE, & GOLD.

The Girls Rec Program is divided into the following levels; STARBURSTS, FIRECRACKERS, ROCKETS, & DYNAMITES. These levels are meant to create a class that is both challenging and progressive for every student. After Dynamites our girls will head into the Nova Program.

Our Boys Program is divided by age and skill level. Our boys’ Kinder and 1st Grade program is divided into three different levels; COPPER, CHROME, & STEEL. The boys who are 2nd Grade and up are divided into the following levels; IRON, PLATINUM, & TITANIUM.
This class is designed for boys and girls who want to concentrate their efforts on the tumbling aspect of gymnastics. This class is great for those aspiring to be a cheerleader or for those just not as interested in the other gymnastics events.
Our tumbling program begins with Intro to Tumbling which emphasizes the fundamentals of tumbling: cartwheels and round-offs, with an introduction to back handsprings. These tumblers will work their way up through Intermediate, Accelerated, Advanced, and finally Elite where they work the more advanced combinations of tumbling passes. They will turn a back tuck into a lay-out, and they will begin to twist their layouts into fulls and double fulls. Front tumbling will also become more of a focus.
Cypress Academy Ninja provides a first class Ninja training facility, featuring incredible Ninja structures, warped walls and more! Ninjas will focus on upper body and grip strength, coordination and body control, and overall confidence while conquering a variety of obstacles.
Ninjas will start off with a basic level of fundamental skills from walking across a balancing bridge or first swinging on a lache bar to smashing the buzzer of the tallest warped wall or topping the last rung of the salmon ladder. After Ninjas get some practice on our basic courses, they will progress to our timed and more challenging courses. Classes are for ages 3 & up for boys and girls (co-ed), and will be grouped by age and skill level. (Link to Cypress Academy Ninja Website, direct link will be available soon)
