Joining Airborne Academy has been the best decision for my family. My daughter has truly found a place where she belongs and is valued. She recently was talking about the progress she has been making when I glanced over and saw the most joyous expression on her face. She exhibits a level of confidence and determination I have never seen in her. The coaches are consistently positive and encouraging. They work with each athlete where they are and move them forward. As an educator, I can tell this organization is run by educators who know what it takes to build relationships with kids, set goals, and monitor their progress. Tim is very responsive to parents (all, not just cheer) because they are his clients. The policy about not allowing other gyms' athletes to take tumbling classes at his gym is sound business practice and was created before the doors opened. This avoids any future conflict and misunderstanding between competing businesses. The cheer parents are simply helping Airborne uphold its policy because they are satisfied clients who are loyal to this wonderful company. I highly recommend Airborne Academy.
Airborne Academy is the gym on the move. Sent 18 kids to T & T nationals in 2013 and half came home with a top 10 finish in their division. Over 300 kids are now enrolled in the Airborne programs and the numbers are growing daily. Also, I "respectfully" disagree with the post below about moms running the gym. Tim (the Owner) develops his own gym policies/rules and the Moms have no control over it (although being a good business owner, I'm sure Tim will be fair and hear you out if you have an issue or idea that will help the gym and its programs). Good instructors in cheer and T & T and active booster clubs "legally formed and properly run" that support the kids wholeheartedly.
From the first day we walked into Airborne, we were greeted warmly and treated as family. It is still the same every day we come for tumbling or cheer practice. The owners/coaches make it a point to know every person's name, and whose child belongs to whom. The positive cheerful energy that you feel just makes you want to keep coming back. My daughter does All Star Cheer for Airborne and usually she wants to leave for practice a half hour early "just to get there and be with my cheer friends, and coaches and to play" (her words). The coaches literally "never have a bad day" and are so friendly and sweet with the kids, even when they sometimes need to be disciplined. The owners are dedicated, warm, and have great senses of humor. It is a joy to be a part of this team. I can tell you that in the past I have paid lots of money for private tumbling lessons. The very first time we went to a tumbling class at Airborne Coach Jim had my daughter doing a round off back handspring within an hour, which she had worked on for over a year. Simply amazing. The other cheer parents are friendly and sweet, and we all enjoy each others company. This is a family you can count on for the very best treatment of both your child and you. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Airborne is amazing! From the gym, to the staff, to ALL the parents there on the TNT & Cheer teams. It has the most positive upbeat atmosphere. My little girls just love it there and I can never get them to leave. The days we are not tumbling or doing Cheer are asking when they can go back. This is definitely the type of atmosphere you want your young ones learning from. You are made to feel like family from the first time you walk in the door. These owners knew what they were doing when they opened this place and it’s only going to get better! So happy to be a part of the Airborne family!
The gym is nice, the instructors are great, but they let the cheer moms tell the owners how to run their business. It's not about the kids, it's about the parents who sign the contracts. If you want to take a tumble class there, you better make sure you don't belong to another cheer gym because the cheer moms will make sure you get kicked out.
