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.

    Getting emails like this makes our day!!! THIS is why we do what we do!

    Dear Ali and Alana,

    I wanted to say thank you for following your dream and creating Cheer Sport Sharks. My daughter is a member of the Polkadot team and this is the first sport she has participated in where she wakes up each day (no word of a lie) and asks "Do I have cheer today?". Last school year she was witness to bullying actions by peers which caused her to become very self conscious and anxious. Since joining Cheer Sport Sharks, she has flourished. My husband and I attribute a great deal of this change to the comfort and acceptance she feels from your staff, her teammates and fellow sharks.

    I would like to make special mention of her coaches, Erin (Moe) and Kiana (Horch). These ladies are exceptional. They have taken 12 young girls who have never experienced cheer and who did not know each other and turned them into a team of sisters. The genuine care these ladies have for the girls does not go unnoticed. As I looked down from the stands at the Breath of Life competition, I see Horch surrounded by the team and she is the leader of an impromptu dance party. It was priceless.

    Thank you again for all that you have created. Much continued success and you have a shark for life in my daughter!
