    WAG Crooked Tumbling?

    I have my first ever gymnastics competition (Level 8) later this month. I will be competing a roundoff back handspring back tuck. The only problem I seem to have with them is my roundoff. I can't seem to tumble in a straight line when I do a running hurdle. It's my roundoff that's the problem. I...

    Is my routine too easy??/Number of tumbling passes for level 10

    Hi, i'm about to be a first year level 10 since my level 9 season is over at the moment and recently I decided with my coach that I wanted to only compete two tumbling passes instead of the usual three next season. My tumbling is fairly weak and all I am able to manage is barely a double tuck...

    For Coaches Coaching Front Tumbling after Sam Cerio Injury

    So I coach at a rec gym and am struggling with how to approach coaching front tumbling after Sam Cerio’s injury. I decided to only coach back tumbling this week, so I can figure out the best way to prepare for fears, questions, etc. ( more of the mental side). I know that most of my kiddos saw...

    WAG Level 6 tumbling

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a deduction for landing your tuck with your feet apart (less than hip width). My daughter has had knee problems all year and we are trying to find a solution. I have read that landing with your feet this way will not cause a deduction. I...

    For Coaches Floor Warm-ups w/Tumbling Strip

    The state where I previously lived almost never utilized tumbling strips for meet warm-ups, however it appears that is the norm in my current location. I have been to 1-2 out of state meets previously that did have a tumbling strip, but I just want to make sure I have the ins and outs of it...

    Arms up for set-back tumbling

    Hello there. I was just wondering if anyone had any advice or drills for me. No matter how hard I try, I can’t keep my arms up during the set for a back tuck or anything else. On a trampoline or the tumbl trak I can do it well, but when I go to the floor, I just can’t. I am a pretty powerful...

    WAG Backward Tumbling Required?

    Is it possible to meet optional level (6 -10) requirement with only front tumbling? Just curious since DD has developed block - going backwards. She did switch to xcel but seems to want more hours lately. I guess switching back to JO may not be possible though because she only competed up to...

    WAG Arms/Shoulders by Ears on vault and tumbling

    I recently noticed that my daughter - who just finished level 4 - seems not to keep her arms by her ears during the "flight" (?) phase of her tumbling and fhs vault. On vault, as soon as she raises her hands, they're sort of in a V and she never gets them by her ears as she flies towards and...

    Tumbling Help

    So I have a decent roundoff backhandspring. The problem is that I land on my toes out of the roundoff and the backhandspring. This could cause ankle injuries so I try very hard to land on flat feet. However, when I try to do that, my backhandspring undercuts and my knees bend. This also happens...
