What is open gym?

Open Gym is a great time to come in and work on improving skills in a more open format compared to a structured class. Athletes can choose what to work on with coaches supervising and instructing as necessary. Work on any of the following:

  • Tumbling

  • Cheer Jumps

  • Cheer Stunts (Bring your whole stunt group)

  • Flexibility

Does my athlete have to be a enrolled in classes at TWA to participate?

No of course not. Open Gym is open to anyone and everyone ages 5 years and older.

Does my athlete have to have a certain skill level to participate?

  • Each athlete should have a basic understanding of the skill(s) they wish to work on.

  • For tumbling, it is best if the athlete is currently working on at least front/back walkovers/kickovers or an appropriate higher level skill.

  • The athlete should be proficient at skills preceding that which they are working on.

  • TWA staff may prevent an athlete from working on a skill if they feel they are not ready for it which could cause technique issues, mental roadblocks, and safety hazards.

What does my athlete need to wear/bring to Open Gym?

  • Wear form fitting clothing, preferably spandex type

  • Only CLEAN cheer shoes may be worn in the gym. Bare feet are also acceptable.

  • No jewelry of any kind should be worn in the gym. Cheer bows may be worn.

  • Hair should be pulled up in pony tail.

  • Please bring a water bottle and possibly a small nutritious snack. No candy or GUM.

How much does it cost?

Non-Members: $15 (Anyone not currently enrolled in classes at TWA)

Members: $10 (Anyone currently enrolled in at least one class at TWA)
