Tumbling (Ages 6+):
Tumbling is instruction solely on the floor apparatus. Beginning tumbling teaches skills such as cartwheels, round offs, walkovers, and handsprings. In order to acheive the skills, the gymnast must develop flexibility, coordination, muscle memory, and strength. Training modalities such as rope climb, leg lifts, back arch mats, hoola hoops, jump rope, jump blocks, resistance bands, tumble track, trampoline, and foam pit aid in development of these qualities.
