heyy
I would like to take up tumbling i have been a artistic gymnast for about 9 years and have a talent for tumbling.. but i do have alot of questions & cant find much about tumbling online

My Questions are:

1. Can you just do power tumbling or do u have to do tramp as well?
2. How long is the tumbling strip?
3. What do u have to do exactly? ( How many passes and such)
4. What is needed for the following levels
-Level 7-10?

I would really appreciate it if someone gets back to me asap

Thank u so much :)

Yes, you can do power tumbling as a seperate sport. Trampoline is not like gymnastics. It does have 4 apparatus like gymnastics which are individual trampoline, double mini trampoline, synchronized trampoline and power tumbling. But in WAG you compete for an all around. In trampoline they are 4 seperate events. Many people only do one event.

A tumbling strip is 25 meters long and is a lot bouncier than a regular sprung gymnastics floor. So it may take a little getting used too, but when you do it will allow you to do things you could never dream of on the gym floor.

You need to do 2 8 skill passes. I don't know the requirements for the higher levels.

I am glad to see this info! We are looking at T&T or Power tumbling for my dd, as she may be quitting artistic. This made it all a bit clearer. I am going to ask about it at her gym today, as to what all events they are going to teach/compete. Right now she is deciding between this, comp cheer, and artistic. she feels that w/ cheer, she will still get some dance & music, which she would miss if she did t&t. And t&t seems even more individual (i.e., less team-oriented) than artistic, am I right?

Hi gymnastincal! Check out my videos on youtube (sethnjadensmom) if you want to see examples of trampoline and power tumbling. My daughter competes USTA, but I'm guessing California competes USAG? We love it!
