Level 1 Tumbling is for new students who have little or no tumbling experience. Students are introduced to proper body positioning, terminology, and technique. They learn about the muscle groups responsible for each tumbling skill and the role that flexibility, strength, sequencing and timing plays in tumbling. Emphasis is placed on initiating the conditioning requirements needed for intermediate and advanced tumbling. Students will learn forward and backward rolls, handstand, handstand to a bridge, standing backbend to a bridge, and a kick over from a bridge.
Students in Level 2 & 3 Tumbling refine their basic skills and increase their strength and flexibility. The back handspring is the cornerstone of cheer tumbling and is a requirement of many cheer teams. One of the primary goals of Level 2 & 3 is to introduce and master the back handspring. The round off is refined with a focus on developing a strong rebound. Conditioning emphasis is placed on shoulder flexibility, back flexibility, and leg strength, all needed for the back handspring. Students will be taught the back handspring in staged progressions, utilizing specialized equipment. Students will be spotted on the back handspring until both the student and the coach feels that a spot is not necessary.
This is the class where all the hard work pays off! Level 4 tumbling is exciting, exhilarating and fun! Level 4 Tumbling students work on front tumbling and multiple trick skills and combinations.
