Clinic participants will be taken through a thorough warm up and stretch before we get into each athletes’ mastered skills. Instructors will set up stations which include mats, floor exercise, trampoline drills, foam pit & resin pit to help expand on those mastered skills and lead into the second half of the clinic.
