ELITE INTERNATIONAL TRACK
This program Tumblebees’ most advanced track. Athletes will train with our National Team staff at our U.S. Olympic Training Center with an ultimate goal of earning a spot on our U.S. Women’s National Team or Olympic Team. Gymnasts are hand selected for this program to begin training at an intense level.
USA Gymnastics TOPs program (ages 4 – 10)
Gymnasts in the TOPS program train 15-18 hr/week in a low coach to student ratio of no more than 6 kids with 1 coach. They progress at an rapid pace, expected to have elite level skills by the age of 10. There are only a handful of students or less each year that are able to keep up with the demands of this program but the prestige and rewards that come from this level of training is unimaginable. Being such a young age group, this program at Tumblebees is created to be a fun & enjoyable experience for the athletes participating.
