Clinics and Private Lessons
Back Walkover Clinic
This clinic is great for students who not only want to achieve the back walkover, but also for those that are working toward a back bend or the kick over. This 45 minute clinic offers skills and drills progressing toward the back walkover. They will receive some one on one attention as well as independently working the circuit of related skills. The back walkover clinic is offered to children who already know how to do a bridge, and are working the back bend and/or bridge kick over in class.
Layout and Full Clinic
If your athlete is working to perfect the back layout or is ready to start twisting, they need to take this clinic! This will be an 45 minute practice focusing body position and how to twist the body in the air. It takes a certain mastery of body shapes and strength in order to twist, and this clinic will help teach that! Athletes will get a chance to learn and practice with unique drills that will help them gain body awareness in the air which will benefit all of their twisting skills! **Prerequisites: Round-off back handspring back tuck**
Although most gymnasts/tumblers will not master these specific skills in one clinic, they will leave with more confidence, a better understanding of the skill and an awareness of proper technique. With these tools they will master the skill at a quicker rate. We are sure your child will achieve a level of success when attending one of our clinics.

Each clinic is $10
Students currently enrolled in classes can use a proper clinic for their skill level as a make up lesson.
Please understand that Downriver Gymnastics does not give credits for clinics for any reason. No exceptions.
Back Tuck Clinic
This clinic will focus primarily on standing back tucks. Tumblers will work a circuit while getting plenty of one-on-one attention working the back tuck. All students should have a round-off back handspring and solid standing back handspring in order to enroll
Back Handspring Clinic
If your gymnast has already mastered the back walkover, then the back handspring clinic is the place to be! This is a 45-minute clinic with emphasis not only on the back handspring, but also the round-off. Your child will work through the circuit of drills and progressive skills for the back handspring and have a wonderful time flipping with confidence.
