Stunting skills involve two or more athletes working together to hold a balance shape or throw a dynamic skill.
There is always one flyer - the top person being held in a shape or being thrown and caught.
There is always one base - supporting, throwing or catching the flyer.
There may be a secondary base - helping to support, throw and catch the flyer.
There may be a back spotter - helping to support, throw and catch the flyer.
Skills are performed at various heights - ground, waist, shoulder (Prep level) and full stretch (Extension).
Individual dynamic skills ranging from forward and backward rolls through handsprings and flicks to single and twisting somersaults. Athletes work two types of tumble in a routine.
Running Tumble - starts in a forward direction from running or forward skills such as handspring.
Standing Tumble - starts in a backward direction with steps or backward skills such as back walkover.
All our tumble skills are developed on the trampoline, fast track, air track or tumble track.
