Cheerleading Tumbling Moves
Katrina and Sloane perform various tumbling moves that are used in cheerleading, dance and gymnastics. There is standing tumbling, run and tumble and power tumbling.
Along with their friends at Cheerforce, they introduce tumbling from basic cartwheel and somersault to advanced cheerleading tumbling moves.
Cheerleading often has competitions for the best jumper and best tumbler.
A general guideline for tumbling levels is:
- Level 1 (beginning) is cartwheels and round offs
- Level 2 involves back handsprings
- Level 3 would be tucks
- Level 4 would have layouts
- Level 5 includes fulls, twists and whips. You are not allowed to perform these stunts if you are competing at lower levels.
Tumbling routines will consist of 1 running tumbling pass with at least 3 tumbling skills and 1 standing tumbling pass with at least 2 tumbling skills, and also be 1 minute maximum. Participants compete based on age group.

Other moves include back extension rolls, a back walkover from standing,
