If you can't help financially... tell a friend about us!


Intermediate was my favorite tumbling level when I did USTA.

All levels in USTA technically are optionals--there's no compulsory passes except the Elite compulsory (which is one of 3 competed passes). Subnovice and Novice tumbling tend to function as compulsory levels, but the passes are not mandated.

Intermediate tumbling used to be 2 5-skill passes, each with 1-2 saltos. They changed that 2003ish to a 5 skill and an 8 skill, each with 1 to 2 saltos. The passes do not have to end in a salto (unlike in Subadvanced and advanced, in which they do). Intermediate tumblers may do a half or a barani, but no fulls. The most common passes are roundoff 3bhs tuck and roundoff 6bhs tuck.

Trampoline routines are extremely varied because they have quite a lot of choices, and since they must hit the trampoline 10 times, that gives a lot of room for variety. They MUST include a front salto, a back salto, a jump full turn, a front or back contact (in other words, they have to land on their fronts or backs), and between 3 and 5 saltos. A 3/4 front or 3/4 back would fulfill both a salto requirement and the front/back contact requirement.

Double mini, they get 3 passes (whereas in USAG they get 2). Each one must have one salto, but may not have 2-in Subadvanced they must have a 2 salto pass, but Intermediate they may not. They may do a barani or a back half, but not a full. So you may see straight jump over the line, back tuck in the second bed, straddle jump dismount, or you may see something like a tuck jump over the line, front tuck off, or a number of other things. Back in my day spotter skills (straight jump to the to the second bed, then a skill) were way more popular than mounters (skills over the line) at this level.

The USTA website is extraordinarily helpful in trying to understand how things work. I hope your daughter has fun.
