Is tumbling for cheer - especially "sideline"/courtside cheer - taught differently than tumbling skills for gymnastics? I would think the difference in surfaces would be a factor, primarily for landing, but I could be wrong. My DS (non-gymnast) plays basketball and I've been able to see some middle school cheer squads up close as a result. I have seen some tumbling skills, mostly BHS and tucks, and since my DD is learning both in the gym, I'm curious about whether the coaching techniques are different. I absolutely *cringe* seeing girls tumble on a hardwood basketball court, since I'm so used to the padding and spring floors of gymnastics!
