uk tumbling collective associates program
The UK Tumbling Collective was created to provide accessible, elite tumble coaching for UK dance & cheer athletes. We aim to provide quarterly opportunities, in a fully equipped tumble venue, with access to high-level coaches for individuals who wish to work hard and progress their tumbling skills for competitive disciplines.
How does it work?
The UK Tumbling Collective is run by 230 Intensives in partnership with Steel City Sports. We select only 30 of the best tumblers from the UK to participate. Being chosen means you are considered the best of the best! NEW for 2023-24, we will be awarding one FULL PAID scholarship to the program!
The program is open to applications from tumblers, dancers, cheerleaders, acrobats and gymnasts who show tumbling talent. We are looking for committed individuals ready to take it to the next level, and also those who show great promise to benefit from the access to equipment and elite coaching. The Associates program is intended to supplement the excellent training already provided by athletes’ home programs or studios.
The program focuses on fine-tuning technique, effective drills, and direct instruction delivered by expert coaches; aimed at maximising safe progress in tumbling skills. Skills covered (but not limited to) will include aerials, tucks, layouts, onodis, twisting layouts and running tumbling passes.
Available places on the Associates program will be limited, and by invitation following successful application only. This allows participants to train with other like-minded individuals to develop skills, confidence and friendships.
