The Power Tumbling Program
What is Power Tumbling?
Our Power Tumbling program is a specialized discipline of gymnastics where athletes perform a series of flips and twists down a spring runway, taking off from a designated point and landing on a mat. It combines strength, agility, and acrobatics in a dynamic display of skill.
What are they going to be working on?
In our Power Tumbling program, athletes will work on a range of skills from basic rolls and cartwheels to advanced flips and twists. Depending on the level, athletes will also work on building strength, flexibility, and endurance, refining routines, and preparing for competitions.
Why am I joining competitive vs rec, and what's the difference?
Joining the competitive track as opposed to the recreational (rec) track means that you're seeking a more rigorous training regimen. This is aimed at refining your skills to compete at local, regional, or even national events. Choosing the competitive route is for those who are dedicated, disciplined, and have a fervent passion for the sport, desiring to push their boundaries and shine in competitions.
On the other hand, the recreational (rec) track is designed for individuals who wish to learn the basics of tumbling, relish the sport, and remain active. The emphasis here is on fun, fitness, and mastering fundamental skills, all without the pressures of competition. So, in essence, while both tracks offer training, the competitive track is geared towards those with aspirations to compete, while the rec track is more relaxed, focusing on enjoyment and basic skill acquisition.
