Tumbling High Performance Clinic 

Over the school holidays our nation’s top tumblers came together for an immersive clinic, held by Gymnastics NSW and High Performance partners, Kachan School of Tumbling and Performance (KSTP).  

The five day clinic was led by renowned international guests; High Performance coach and FIG Judge, Adyl Guseynzade, and  Under 21 World and Senior European Champion, Mikhail Malkin. The presenters worked with the athletes and coaches, giving an insight into both technical and physical aspects of tumbling.

Kicking off the clinic was a combined gymsport session, bring together gymnasts and coaches across artistic, trampoline and acrobatic gymnastics to share ideas and improve tumbling technique. It was a fantastic session of collaboration for both coaches and athletes. 

Following the combined clinic, 45 tumblers and 17 coaches from across Australia gathered for an intensive 3 day tumbling camp.   

The camp focused on all aspects of elite tumbling, including strength and conditioning at Last Round Fitness and pool recovery at Linda’s learn to swim in Windsor, facilities our current NSW High Performance Tumbling Squad utilise weekly.

There were open education forums held daily for coaches, who made the most of the opportunity to learn.  

A big thank you to our amazing international presenters for lending their expertise, as well as KSTP for hosting the event and sharing their own personal knowledge and experiences.
