Skill Clinics

Flip-Flop-Shop

This weekly clinic is perfect for athletes of any skill level who wish to achieve a flip-flop (back-handspring) or simply want to perfect a recently learned flip-flop. Learning the correct technique is critical, as the back-handspring is one of the foundational skills in becoming an advanced tumbler and cheerleader. Many cheer programs also require a flip-flop to make the squad. During the hour, our staff will break down the skill into basic parts and movements involved in the back-handspring using drills and stations.

Back Tuck

The staff at Technique is excited to offer a special weekly clinic designed to help athletes master both the standing back tuck and round-off or round-off-back handspring-back tuck.  The back tuck is an advanced level skill that is very valuable and sought after in junior high and high school cheer as well as in the upper levels of All-Star cheer.  Our staff will break the skill down into understandable, achievable stations and drills, as well as spend time developing leg strength and explosive jumping and rebounding techniques.  You don’t want to miss this weekly extra opportunity to super-charge your back tuck! Requirement: Participants must have round-off back-handspring to enroll.

Round-Off & Back-Handspring Excellence

The end goal for the round-off and back-handspring are to generate POWER for BIG back tucks, layouts, full twists, and beyond!  This clinic is for athletes that have unassisted standing back-handspring and round-off back -handspring (and above).  The goal is speed, power and perfecting the round-off and back-handspring (up to multiple) through a variety of drills and stations that will allow athletes to focus on smaller details associated with these skills.   Cleaner, faster, and more powerful round-offs and back-handsprings translate into SIMPLE back tucks and bigger layouts and full twists.  There is also the added benefit of looking cleaner in front of the judges.  This clinic will benefit even the most advanced tumblers!
