OOA Beginning/Advanced Indoor Dry-land Snowboarding

Our OOA Gymnastics Indoor Dry-land Snowboarding class allows students to learn rail slides in a safe padded environment.  Also off axis flipping is introduced using our tumble trampoline and foam pit, allowing students to progess to more difficult skills in a safe learning area.  Balance boards are also an effective training tool used in the class.

MBSEF:  OOA Gymnastics is home to the MBSEF snowboarders, allowing them access to our facility.  Their program utilizes the same apparatus as does our OOA students.

Make-Up Policy:  Similar to college class, your tuition pays for a class spot regardless of attendance. Therefore, we strongly urge students not to miss their scheduled class if at all possible. Make-ups are a privilege not a policy. OOA, as a courtesy, will offer 1 make-up per 8 week session if the make-up is available and will not jeopardize the safety or integrity of a class. All make-ups must be made during the current 8 week session you’ve registered for. You must contact the office to schedule your make-up. If a make-up is not available (other classes full) an Open Gym Pass (1 per session) will be available for class missed. (Please check our Open Gym Schedule) Refunds and Credits for missed classes are also not available. Please notify the office if you know you will be missing as early as possible to allow someone else to schedule a make-up or trial class in your child’s spot.
