Gymnastics is an excellent way for children to gain confidence and build self-esteem while improving their strength, balance, flexibility and endurance; plus, gymnastics helps develop self-discipline, time management skills, focus and concentration. The skills children gain from participating in gymnastics will continue to benefit them for the rest of their lives.
Come join us at HPGA, where we’ve been working hard to help make gymnastics a high point in your and your children’s lives since 1986.
Our Tumblebunnies program uses a well-rounded curriculum designed to help develop balance, strength, flexibility, gross motor and social skills. We encourage active participation to teach children that they can be successful, that learning is fun and that they should always get up and try again.
Our themed lesson plans introduce basic gymnastics fundamentals, as well as developmental and age-appropriate skills. We do this by holding our tumblebunnies classes in our briarpatch where we incorporate games and creative movements in a safe, fun environment.
HPGA Tumblebunnies program is sized just right for your young, growing athlete. If you have any questions throughout the school year, please feel free to speak with your child’s instructor; the lines of communication are always open!

The goal of our homeschool program is to make gymnastics an accessible way for children to explore movement, fitness and physical activity while maintaining a fun, positive environment. We seek to promote gymnastics as an avenue towards a healthy and active lifestyle.
Unlike our level-based recreational classes, our homeschool program is structured based on age. While gymnastics skill development is still incredibly important to us, it is not our primary focus. Rather, we concentrate more on overall physical fitness, while using specific drills and progressions to develop acrobatic skills. Many times people forget the sheer amount of conditioning and flexibility that goes into the workouts of the top athletes in our sport. Instead of rushing to get the back handspring—risking injury and unnecessary stress on the body—we break the skill down into small parts, while focusing on the strength and flexibility required to successfully complete the skill with proper technique and form. When all of these pieces fall into place, the skill comes with limited stress to the gymnast’s body.
We know a lot of thought went into your decision to homeschool your child, and your ultimate goal is for him or her to receive a top-notch, tailored education with the added benefit of spending more time together. Our goal is to contribute to your child’s academic experience by providing a means of superior physical education.
