Every year in Spring, members of intermediate and advanced gymnastics classes are invited to a gymnastics tumbling competition. Children have been focusing on tumble skills in the first phase of our Club Calendar year, giving everyone the opportunity to work towards entering this event and I’m sure many are disappointed that it has been cancelled due to the lockdown measures. Although we are not in classes at this current point in time, we did not want our Springfit family to miss out on this opportunity – so we have decided to move the competition online!
This “Virtual Tumbling Competition” will be taking place over on Springfit Online – our new Facebook service for members to enjoy our continued service during this trying time.
To find out more about Springfit Online please click on the button below.
To enter the Virtual Tumbling Competition, you will need to be a current member with either a full subscription or online-only subscription.
All you need to do is head over to the Springfit Online Group, find the post in the “Discussions” section advertising the competition and post a comment on it with the video of your best tumble run, along with your child’s name, age and venue they usually attend classes at.
The rules of this competition are nice and simple:
- This virtual competition is open to all CURRENT members
- Submit entries before midnight on Sunday 24th May.
- Tumbles will be scored on effort, style, creativity and execution
- Make sure that you warm up and stretch before practising/executing your tumble
The winner of each age or ability level category (split at the discretion of the organisers) will be announced Monday 25th May and awarded with a gold medal which will be posted out to you.
The competition is open to all ages and abilities. You can do any five moves that are within your ability level.

We look forward to seeing your entries from home and awarding a winner!
