CHEER & TUMBLing CLASSES

We offer many different classes here at SJS which are all open to the public. You do not have to be enrolled in a team to participate in classes! Our classes are taught by USASF Certified instructors who have all gone through a background check prior to employment with SJS. Our professional staff will instruct athletes through the proper progressions to gain new skills, master those skills, and safely move on to the next level. Athletes will achieve an overall increase in flexibility, strength, and body control awareness to assist them in achieving their goals.

Tumbling Class Program

The South Jersey Storm Tumbling Class Program consists of professional and USASF-certified tumbling instructors who will teach proper skill progression-based classes to advance athletes through tumbling levels 1-5. Athletes will increase the number of skills they learn and master in each level that contribute to their strength, flexibility, and overall body control and awareness to assist them in achieving their ultimate tumbling goals. Athletes progress through the levels (colors) of tumbling as they master skills utilizing proper technique.

Storm Specialty Classes

South Jersey Storm offers a variety of specialty classes for both the general public and current SJS cheerleaders and dancers.  Please check our calendar to see which class best fits your athlete’s needs.   The classes listed are annual programs; the fees are split into 12 monthly installments.  

This class is designed for athletes who wish to increase flexibility.  Flexibility is essential for all cheerleaders – not just flyers – because athletes who are flexible are also good jumpers.  This class teaches stretching methods which will enable athletes to not only pull (and hold) various body positions, but perfect the technique.
