What Is Tumbling?
Tumbling Aid Trainer
Tumbling refers to acrobatic skills that turn the body in different directions such as basic flips, rolls and cartwheels. They are performed without any equipment other than a soft surface that is designed for tumbling movements. As a competitive sport, modern tumbling uses advanced surfaces and, at the highest levels, involves twisting movements as well as combinations of double and triple flipping.
In the sport of power tumbling, athletes use a tumbling runway 85 feet long and 5 feet wide that ends in an 8" to 16" inch thick landing mat. Most often, the runway consists of a double layer of dense foam over fiberglass rods laid horizontally to allow maximum spring.
Tumbling classes are a great way to convert a child's energy into positive energy. The positive energy that's created by the movements will help to increase their drive and focus, and direct them in a positive direction early in life.
Kids will be kids!
No matter what you do, kids will be kids, and what better way to let kids act like kids than on a tumbling mat. They'll be free to run, flip, jump, and of course,. tumble! Although young children must be free to express themselves, their lessons must be set up in a structured way in order to teach them values that will help them throughout their lives. Basically, tumbling is set up so that kids can learn in a controlled environment and have fun at the same time.
Tumbling in Cheer
Tumbling aspects cross over into other activities, and one such activity is cheerleading. Not all cheerleading competitions have score sheets that award separate points for tumbling, however, some do in fact include them and consider them differently. Tumbling points can sometimes be earned in several different categories, and when considering at the discretionary points that you're allowed from tumbling difficulty it can be up to 25% of the possible points from tumbling difficulty.
