Special Needs

Bayside Athletics’ special-needs programs encourage life and movement through the sensational sports of cheer and tumbling. Special Needs Athletes benefit from their time together at practice and their work improving themselves. Our programs are for those with developmental and physical disabilities. We accept individuals of all disabilities ages 6 and up.

Tumbling Classes

Combining elements of gymnastics, fitness, and trampoline as well as movement education; our classes for kids with special needs allow differently-abled children the opportunity to be a part of a great activity. Classes are for athletes of all skill levels and abilities. Our classes provide kids with opportunities to engage in physical movement and social interactions, thereby increasing their overall physical fitness, social skills, and self-stem. We also provide private or more advanced tumbling classes for those at higher levels of tumbling.

Our special needs tumbling classes fills at 4 in a class at a time. Classes are developed to who is in the class and their abilities. When we are full in our classes and recieve more interest we will add a class to the schedule.
