History

This sport’s unique format combines many athletic activities into a new, unique, and exciting sport. Because of a tradition of athletic excellence, the team continues to grow.

Our Schedule

The Acrobatics & Tumbling team practices three to four times a week beginning at the end of August. Practice schedules during the school year are based upon a variety of factors, including the class schedules of our upper-classmen. Mandatory preseason workouts are held each summer at APU two weeks before classes start. Due to the time commitment involved with the Acrobatics & Tumbling team, athletes cannot participate in a music ensemble, theater production, or intramural sport. The competition schedule for 2010-11 will include approximately eight events, including six NCSTA sanctioned meets.
