Tumbling is a highly spectacular sport requiring a combination of speed, rhythm, spatial awareness, coordination, power and strength. Tumblers perform on a 25m specialized tumbling strip and work combinations of round-offs, flicks, whips and various somersaults.
In competition the gymnasts perform tumbling passes of eight elements judged on their degree of difficulty - based on single, double or triple somersaults in the tucked, piked or straight shape, with or without twists and their execution quality - speed, technique and height.
AGC Tumble squads are all invitational only. Our developmental structure guides children from the age of 5 through to adulthood through their national and international gymnastic career.
Years 1, 2 & 3
In additional to a weekly Recreational session we offer an invitational advanced session for children with the talent and desire to step onto the competitive pathway
We use the Tumble National Development Plan to introduce gymnasts to the competitive environment.
Children from Year 4 onwards train and compete age approriate skills ranging from rolls & cartwheels through to multiple flicks and somersaults.
Our FIG Tumble squad is the pinacle of our club.
Gymnasts train 5 days a week to develop the advanced skills performed at national and international competitions.
