Acrobatics & Tumbling Team
A&T is an emerging sport at the club level and a rapidly growing NCAA collegiate sport. Imagine this, group stunts, pyramids, and basket tosses similar to cheerleading, strong technique focused tumbling which is synchronized and a short skill-focused routine set to music. A&T is a great avenue for girls who like some of the aspects of cheer but still want to be under the structured umbrella of USAG. Former competitive gymnasts looking for life after JO and girls who love tumbling are perfect candidates for this exciting sport. Here at WCC, we are always looking for new team members, so if you would like to set up a trial please email our Director, Zach Francis, firstname.lastname@example.org.
At WCC, we are thrilled about the future of this sport and what it means for female gymnasts and athletes that love competing. Our team has grown to over 30 athletes since our inception in January 2018. Our team is currently split into two teams based on tumbling ability and age. We currently practice Monday & Wednesday 5-8 or Tuesday & Friday 5-8, we also offer an optional Tumbling only practice on Thursday 5-8.
The cost for this competitive program without monthly tuition is about $1100 for the season(which includes uniform cost). We are planning on 3 meets here in Texas, and one in Las Vegas, NV. We are also planning on 3 different expos this year, University of Houston basketball game, Houston Rockets basketball game, & East Texas Baptist University collegiate A&T game.
All A&T athletes wear volleyball style uniforms and white Nfinity cheer shoes to complete their uniform.
