Competitive tumbling is a combination of any of these three main events:
Power tumbling is performed on an elevated fiberglass rod floor that helps tumblers propel themselves higher as they demonstrate speed, strength, and skill while executing a series of acrobatic maneuvers. We will offer beginners that may perform simple tumbling skills through Top-level contenders that perform explosive somersaults with multiple flips and twists. There are nine categories in USTA tumbling from Sub Beginner through Elite Division.
We will offer beginner through elite level competitive trampoline classes where students train and perform trampoline skills with excellent technique and precision. International competition trampolines are larger and more powerful than those utilized in the early years and a far cry from the “backyard” models that are found today in most suburban neighborhoods. During two competitive routines of 10 skills each, upper-level athletes can easily demonstrate a graceful array of double, triple and twisting somersaults.
Double Mini Trampoline
Double mini is a relatively new sport that combines the horizontal run of tumbling with the vertical rebound of trampoline. After a short run, the athlete jumps onto a small two-level trampoline to perform a rebounding trick immediately followed by a dismount element onto a landing mat. Double mini is similar in concept to springboard diving, using a mat instead of water.
