Bishopbriggs Acro Tumble Squad Trial

Date: Saturday 19th March              

Location: Meadowburn primary school          

Time: 09:00 – 11:30

Last year was the first year we have introduced tumble squads within our club.  We feel that the tumble squads have made a big difference to our gymnasts and have greatly improved their progress and confidence.  We have lots of talented high level tumblers and hope that this continues next year.  Due to the popular demand of our tumble squads we have decided to change the structure for next year to allow more gymnasts to be included.

Please see 2016 – 2017 squad list below:-

Senior Tumble Squad (approx. NDP 5+)

A Tumble Squad (approx. NDP 3-5)

B Tumble Squad (approx. NDP 1-2)

Development Tumble Squad (approx. Development A/B)

All gymnasts who were previously in our tumble squads are required to trial again.  This unfortunately means that they may not be selected for 2016-2017 squads.

Please see below the criteria for all tumble squad gymnasts:-

  • Gymnasts must train Saturday 09:00 – 11:30 at Meadowburn primary school
  • Gymnasts must have good attendance at current sessions
  • Gymnasts must be available and keen to attend additional sessions

At the trial session gymnasts will be tested on a number of different areas all of which are connected to tumble.  These are flexibility, strength, speed, endurance and tumble skills (flips, whips, somersaults etc.).  We will also take into account previous attendance at Saturday morning sessions and additional tumble sessions if relevant.

Please note that all gymnasts who trial will be unable to join our tumble squads.  This does not mean they will be discounted from competing at tumble competitions.  Each squad will have maximum ten gymnasts.  All gymnasts will be notified via email the results of the trial (this may take up to one week).  Coaches will unfortunately be unable to provide individual feedback.

If gymnasts wish to trial for our tumble squad please contact the club via email or ask a coach for a form to complete.  Please note that all gymnasts are able to trial for the tumble squads regardless of current sessions/ability.     

Thank you!
