TUMBLING LEVELS

1.       Below are the level classifications as identified by the United States All Star Federation.

2.       Before your child can move to the next level, it must be approved by their tumbling instructor to ensure the mastery of skills.

3.       Combination passes for each level may be worked on but do not determine whether you progress to the next level.

4.       If the skills are performed with at least 90% great technique, it does not count.
