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. We currently practice Monday & Wednesday 5:30-8:30 with an optional tumbling practice on Thursday nights 5:30-8:30.
The cost for this competitive program without monthly tuition is about $1500 for the season(which includes uniform cost). We are planning on at least 4 competitions here in the state and hopefully one every season out of state.
All A&T athletes wear volleyball-style uniforms and cheer shoes.
In our short history here at WCC our A&T program already sent 2 athletes to collegiate programs.
