Tumbling is an important part of competitive cheerleading. The term tumbling is used to describe gymnastic elements such as cartwheel and backhand springs. There are two equally important components of tumbling: standing and running.
We offer a number of ways for athletes to gain exposure to the tumbling elements of our sport. We offer semi-private and private lessons, group tumbling classes as well as special sign-up classes with fabulous US instructors.

Our tumbling packages are designed for athletes who are serious about advancing in the sport. If your daughter loves tumbling and cheerleading – she should be training her skills with our coaches who know the sport of cheerleading inside and out. Local gymnastic clubs do not offer the same level of expertise in cheerleading specific tumbling. During registration, you can purchase a package (Silver, White, Teal) at a preferred rate. Tumbling packages allow you to schedule your tumbling classes for the entire cheerleading season. Packages are available to Registered Athletes until the June 29, 2017 or while quantities last.
Non – Registered Athletes wanting to purchase a tumbling package can email our Tumbling Coordinator July 1st – 7th, 2017 at [email protected]
We have found athletes with tumbling packages progress much quicker and show more confidence in their skills.
