Nah, it's all good. They're just getting comfortable with falling. And I love seeing them practice doing 360 spins on their knees or whatever. It sounds like those kids would love an obstacle course drill with a superman slide under a stick or something similar. I had a group of kids once that got some extra ice time after practice where I was running that station and I swear they would have slided under that stick all day. It's really fun for them and great for agility.
