If your athlete is taking any class involving tumbling, there is some important information you should know.
There is a proper progression for learning tumbling skills.
Strength, flexibility and technique must be gained in order for a skill to be completely achieved.
If athletes progress too quickly from one tumbling skill to the next, their muscles and technique may not be ready yet.
It is very important that skills are learned safely and properly.
PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IMPORTANT TIPS WHEN YOUR ATHLETE IS SUPER EAGER TO GET A NEW SKILL AND THEIR COACH MAY FEEL THEY NEED MORE DRILLS, CONDITIONING AND TRAINING BEFORE LEARNING IT. AT INFINITY, WE CARE ABOUT THE SAFETY OF OUR ATHLETES AND WILL HELP THEM PROGRESS IN THE PROPER AMOUNT OF TIME BASED ON THEIR CURRENT SKILL SET.
