There are many materials required for a tumbler which is why gymnastic facilities want to make sure they have the best for their athletes. But the best tumbling material doesn’t all fall in the hands of your tumbling facility; you are responsible as well for being prepared. The first key material is your attire. Fitted clothing that won’t restrict you in any way is crucial for your safety. When learning new skills, it is dangerous for your coach to spot you if you are wearing loose clothing. Your coach may get tangled or caught which will prevent them from spotting you correctly. We always recommend wearing a leotard but gym shorts and a fitter t-shirt work as well. Any type of jewelry is not a tumbling material. Jewelry can be distracting and any type of piercing is at risk to being torn from your skin. If you are a cheerleader, your uniform requires you to wear sneakers. Make sure you are double knotting your laces and buy shoes that are well fitted to ensure your safety during tumbling passes. Once you have taken the responsibility to make sure you are well prepared to tumble is safe attire then the rest of the proper tumbling materials are left up to your gym.
Gyms take all necessary precautions when purchase the best and safest tumbling materials. Tumbling skills are practiced on spring floors, trampolines are various mats. A large spring floor helps advanced tumblers and cheerleaders complete their long tumbling passes. The extra lift from the springs allows for higher distances in order to complete skills more successfully. The trampoline is a great way to learn tumbling skills before doing them on the floor.
