What is Acro & Tumbling?
HINT: It’s not acro dance or acrobatic gymnastics.
Acro & Tumbling is a college sport that involves ‘stunts’ similar to what you see in cheerleading (Acro) and tumbling that includes some incredible power tumbling.
"Acrobatics & Tumbling was developed to provide fair and safe opportunities for young women to compete at the varsity intercollegiate level in skill sets primarily developed through youth participation in all disciplines of gymnastics or in cheerleading. Thirty-one institutions sponsor Acrobatics & Tumbling as a varsity sport on their campus, including six that added a program in 2019. Twenty-nine of the 31 institutions that sponsor acrobatics and tumbling are members of one of the three NCAA divisions. The NCAA Committee on Women's Athletics (CWA) has recommended that all three divisions of the NCAA governance structure add acrobatics and tumbling to the NCAA Emerging Sports for Women program."~TheNCATA.org~ @thencata
