With a simple tumbling mat, you can create a safe space for your young tumbler or gymnast to practice their craft at home, under your watchful eye. Tumbling mats are the foundation for all gymnastics because they protect and defend, just like a vigilant parent. They’re affordable, easy to use and store, and can last your tumbler’s whole gymnastics career.
Our tumbling mats come in different thicknesses, lengths, and widths so you can choose the one that fits your child right now or one that will accommodate growth and increased skills. For the littlest tumblers, the tumbling mat will be a safe place to practice motor control and balance. And there’s no better place to do all that than on a soft, supportive surface. You cringe every time your little guy wants to show you his forward roll on the hard kitchen floor, worried he’ll hurt himself on that unforgiving surface. The tumbling mat takes that out of the equation. It provides padding so when the fall happens, the kiddo can get right back up. But it provides firm support, too, so there are fewer of those falls.
For older and more experienced gymnasts, the larger tumbling mats offer safe space to practice bolder moves and skills right at home. Confidence levels as well as skill levels improve vastly when there is opportunity to extend practice time at home. Getting instruction a couple of times a week from a thoroughly vetted gymnastics coach is of absolute importance, but when your child has the opportunity to keep practicing even when she’s not at the gym, she will progress even between classes.
While no athletic endeavor is without risk, you can mitigate some associated with tumbling and gymnastics with the purchase of a professional-quality tumbling mat for your child to use at home. Fold it up and tuck it away when it’s not in use and you have your family room back. And when the mood for practice strikes again, pull out the trusted tumbling mat and let the games begin.
