TRAMPOLINE & TUMBLING
The Flip Shop USA Gymnastics Trampoline & Tumbling competitive team is made up of Levels 4-Elite. Athletes competing Levels 1-7 are members of our compulsory team. These levels are progressive in nature building on the skills required at the previous levels. The compulsory levels provide a foundation of discipline, strong basic skills, and teamwork. T&T athletes can compete a different level on each event so athletes are placed into a "group" with similar levels for their season.
