Here at Haydens, ages 5 and up are welcome to join our Tumbling and Trampoline program. We have found that incorporating trampoline training helps cross train for other sports. T&T has been found to be useful for All-Around gymnastics, both boys and girls, Cheerleaders, Parkour, Wakeboaders, Skateboarders and Snowboarders, to just name a few. T&T helps athletes to develop a strong sense of air awareness. This awareness helps your child to conquer the harder skills easier.
The skills acquired in levels 1, 2, and 3 will enable your child to continue forward to our competitive T&T pre-team/team or will give them a superior foundation which is needed for high school, junior high school, elementary school, recreational Cheerleading programs or our All-Star Cheerleading Teams. Advancing to our Levels 4 & 5 straight Tumbling classes will prepare your child for the upper "flight" skills that will be required for upper level recreational or competitive cheerleading. We also find T&T training extremely vital in the development of our boys who wish to take on the challenge of men's gymnastics.
Tumbling and Trampoline is also an Olympic event. Trampoline was introduced into the Olympics in 2000 and Tumbling will be added in 2016. Many colleges are also expanding their gymnastics programs to include T&T. Also, many T&T athletes go on to be great stars in Cirque Du Soleil and stunt doubles.
Tumbling and Trampoline (T&T) is one of the newest and fastest growing disciplines in USA Gymnastics. It includes four separate events: Trampoline, Double Mini Trampoline, Tumbling and Synchro Trampoline. T&T is unique in several ways. Athletes DO NOT have to compete in all four events. They can choose to specialize in just one or two areas. Also, athletes do not have to be a certain body type. T&T is wonderful for all types of athletes. T&T is also great for athletes that may have a physical disability. This sport is a great esteem builder, team builder and fun way to learn awesome skills.
We have a great Tumbling and Trampoline Team, with many current State Champions. The team is always looking for new ways to challenge themselves. But, if you choose not to compete in the T&T program and are on the path of competitive cheerleading, you can be sure that your child will have received the best tumbling foundation skills available.
