Discover the Difference Between Gymnastics & Tumbling, Greece, New York

If you are considering enrolling your child in a gymnastics class, you might have discovered that most facilities, including The Victors Gymnastics in Rochester, NY, offer a variety of gymnastics and tumbling classes. For those who are new to the sport and might not know the difference between the two, this can be confusing.

To help parents decide on the best classes for their child, here are a few distinctions The Victors Gymnastics would like to note between gymnastics and tumbling.

What Is Gymnastics?

gymnastics-rochester-nyAthletes who participate in gymnastics perform a number of acrobatic maneuvers—including jumps, flips, and handstands. Very often these actions are performed using different kinds of equipment or props, such as balance beams, vaults, uneven bars, hoops, and ropes.

As there are a variety of gymnastics types, a beginner gymnastics class is often the best choice for younger children who are just starting out. These classes will help to build listening and focusing skills, which are a crucial part of keeping kids safe while they train. Children will also develop basic gymnastics skills in the beginner classes. Once they have completed those, they will then be able to move on to more specialized forms of gymnastics.

What Is Tumbling?

One form of gymnastics is tumbling. In this particular style, athletes forgo using any equipment other than a padded floor to perform flips, somersaults, handsprings, and other movements. Tumbling is often referred to as floor gymnastics. Cheerleading is one of the most common sports to use tumbling moves frequently.

Usually, tumbling classes require athletes to have a basic understanding of gymnastics and to have already developed a certain amount of body strength. If your child is older and has already completed beginner gymnastics classes, tumbling is a great next step for enhancing their skill set.

If you are searching for a gymnastics class for your child, The Victors Gymnastics in Rochester offers classes for preschool-age children and older, as well as a tumbling and trampoline program. To learn more about their class schedules, call (585) 663-4810 or visit them online.
