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.
