About Us



We are Andrea and Matt Ivey, we have a passion for kids, fitness, and fun. We both graduated together from Humboldt State University with our degrees and recreation administration with minors and business. In 2010 we found in Adventure Recreation (now known as Fliped Academy) as we saw the increasing need for a fun athletic program for today's youth. With electronic screen time on the rise in physical activity on the decline, we feel it is vital to keep our kids active and healthy. We bring a well-rounded, highly instructional, and organize program. We are excited to share a passion with you and develop lasting relationships in our community.
