Intermediate Tumbling – Skills worked on will begin with running round off back handsprings and standing back handspring series (2 or more in a row).  Front and back tucks will also be worked on trampolines.  Conditioning skills will be added to increase strength during each class.  The ultimate goal of the Intermediate Tumbling level is a round off and three back handsprings on the floor.

Advanced Tumbling -  Skills worked on will include round off back handspring back tuck, front tucks and standing back tucks.  As these skills progress, layouts and twists will be added.  Each class will also include conditioning skills to increase strength.
