Debbie Love joins David, Sean, and Shea to talk about the changes to the tumbling rules starting in the 2018-19 season.
On the 21st episode of Drills=Skills, the band is back together to discuss the skills they are seeing performed based on the rules changes for next season.
On the first Drills=Skills show, Sean Guzman, David Petty, Shea Crawford & special guest Debbie Love discuss the changes to the tumbling rules which will start in August, 2017.
- Level 1 – Changes to round off connections
- Level 2 – No turning after back handsprings
- Level 3 – Now requires a clear pause or step after punch fronts/aerial skills. The safety is discussed along with how it can help the industry moving forward.
- The addition of front twisting in restricted 5 now opens the door for more skills and for front and back tumbling to align.
The show closes with discussions of Tiny ages 5-6 and Tiny Exhibition 3-5. Debbie goes into detail about how alternative curriculum directed at younger athletes can positively impact a gym’s bottom line! Tune in next week to hear the show discuss Standing Fulls! Resources:
