have been cheering for a long time! My tryouts are in early August and
we are required to have 3 tumbling passes. One is a rounded backhandspring
back, and I have that no problem. They want original, unique passes that
are difficult and good looking (possibly competition material!) I am an
advanced gymnast.. so if you have any unique passes I could do, please
let me know!
tumbling elements that transition into typical back-tumbling skills, are
a GREAT way to add "seemingly" high levels of difficulty and
great looks. The CORE front tumbling skill is the FRONT handspring. If
you don't have one, GET IT!For example:
1. Front Handspring step-out, round-off, backhandspring.
In this pass, the front-handspring is used to gain momentum and takes
the place of a hurdle or run.
2. THREE front Handspring step-outs in a row. (or
three fast front-walk-overs in a row.
3. Standing Back-handspring STEP-OUT 1/2 twist into
a cartwheel or round-off.
Have fun, Be safe, Push HARD!
