TUMBLING

We offer tumbling classes for all skill levels.  Skills in a particular level broken down into Basic, Advanced, and Elite.

  • Basic skills are the foundational skills required to advance to the next level (e.g. Level 1 basic skills – Round Off (RO), Handstand, Forward roll, etc.)

  • Advanced skills are not required to advance, but are expected of all-star cheerleaders (e.g. Level 1 advanced skills – Front Walkover (FWO) RO, Back Walkover (BWO)+, etc.)

  • Elite skills are the most advanced for a level. Not required but highly recommended for all-star cheerleaders (e.g. Level 1 advanced skills – FWO-FWO RO Back Extension Roll BWO.Typically advanced combinations)

 

We establish progressions for each level.  Handstands come before cartwheels, cartwheels before round offs, etc.  Basic through advanced can be worked for each level.  Kids who progress fast can start on the elite skills while others are working advanced.  While all may not “get” the advanced skills, they will have at least been introduced and drilled on them.

Skills are taught using stations for working drills.  We try to break skills into at least three parts, and then drill the parts. 

In general, we combine two skills and work at the same time.  Like work cartwheels and backbend kick overs together, and front back handsprings/tucks.   This is done to prevent burnout and work front and back tumbling together.
