Oct 17, 2013 - TUMBLING CLINIC

ASPB Tumbling Clinic - Rochester, NY   November 17, 2013 - note from their coordinator & clinic brochure below




Due to high demand, ASPB will be hosting an additional clinic this season!!!   

The first session will be from 12:30-3 p.m. for ages 5-18 with a back handspring or less. The coaching staff will work on progressive skills based on each athlete’s ability and current tumbling level. This will be a perfect time for kids just starting out that have no tumbling experience, and also fantastic for those looking to move on from a back handspring series to something more challenging.

The Advanced Tumbling will run from  3:30-6:00 pm for ages 8-18.(bhs series or higher).  

Athletes that wish to attend both sessions must have approval from ASPB, as we want to ensure every athlete has the opportunity to attend at least one session.  The cost is $10 for one session or $15 for both.

We ask that all coaches and parents remain off the floor during the tumbling sessions.  There is a parent room for your convenience.

T Shirts will be available for sale at the event.  

Sound interesting?! This is what we would encourage you to do next:


Send your registration form and payment in A.S.A.P! Make sure you include an email address in case we need to contact you. Forms are due no later than November 11, 2013. (Remember we always fill up prior to the final date so don’t wait.) Early registrants, by 11/4, will get a chance to win a $50.00 gift certificate to Empire Cheer!)


Contact me asap with the number of athletes you wish to bring so we can set space aside for your team. 

Print the attached form and and have it signed by a parent or guardian of each athlete..

Please make sure the forms are returned no later than November 11th so we can ensure proper staffing.  (Again, the earlier the better, we don't want to turn teams away, but we fill up very quickly.)



If you have additional requests or requirements, please feel free to email me at or 585-278-5164
