National Collegiate Acrobatics & Tumbling

Acrobatics & Tumbling is a relatively new American College sport exclusively for female athletes.

The NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics has recommended that all three divisions of governance structure add Acrobatics & Tumbling to the NCAA Emerging Sports for Women program Aug. 1, 2020.

There were 29 NCAA colleges and universities sponsoring teams in 2019. The sport must reach 40 varsity programs to move forward to the NCAA governance structure for championship consideration in future.

Athletes are recruited as bases, flyers or backs. Some compete only the tumbling portion. Each team has 30 members or more. Baylor, the top team in 2019, has 50 on their roster as I post.

Scholarships are available. Numbers and amount vary school-to-school.

Competitors come from disciplines including Acrobatic gymnastics, Artistic (often Levels 8-10), Trampoline & Tumbling, and competitive Cheer  (often Levels 4 & 5).

The harder competition surface is typically a basketball floor with roll mats on top.

Canadian Trampoline Championships

Jon Schwaiger of Caledonia, ON repeated his double gold-medal performance from 2018, taking gold in both senior men’s tumbling and DMT for another year.

“The competition went pretty well for both,” said Schwaiger who captured his eighth-consecutive senior tumbling title this weekend. “I went four for four on both (apparatus) which is really all you can hope for, and I also set a new difficulty record on DMT on my first pass. Looking forward to Worlds, my plan is to just clean up some of my passes, and up the difficulty in the straight passes and just get them more confident and consistent.”
