Tumbling

Cheer Sport Sharks Performing Tumbling Routine

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 weeks with fabulous US instructors.

    Our hearts go out to our friends at the PCT Cobras as they mourn the loss of Garfield Turner. Garfield was truly a bright light in the Canadian cheerleading world as both an athlete and a coach. While he was a Cobra at heart, he was a friend to us all - never shy with a bright smile, word of encouragement or a heartfelt congrats. The impacts of this tremendous loss run deep, and remind us that we are fortunate to have a cheerleading family that spreads throughout all of Canada. Garfield, you will be missed. ...
