Affinity & Sapphire


Affinity and Sapphire Elite Cheerleaders have had a long relationship and in Sept 2019 we made this official! The story goes that back in 2009, Affinity Founder Jennifer Page was approached by a Sapphire athlete (an athlete who would then go onto run the Sapphires later on) for gymnastics classes to help her learn a back handspring.

Out of these classes, Jen ended up joining the Sapphires as an athlete and competed with them for 3 years. 

​This paved the way for many other collaborations over the years with other Affinity coaches and athletes discovering cheerleading with Sapphire and vice versa with Affinity welcoming Sapphire coaches and athletes over for gymnastics.

So when in early 2019, the opportunity for Affinity, Sapphire and Goffs Academy trust to collaborate together we jumped at the chance (or should that be toe-touched!).

We're all aligned in what we do and why and committed to developing gymnastics and cheerleading moving forwards in our combined future as a larger, united club.

Tumbling Classes
(Age from full time school 4yrs -16yrs+)


Both Affinity and Sapphire coaches welcome you…

 

What are these classes all about

​Tumbling is one area we've merged right together between Affinity and Sapphire Elite Cheerleaders.

It's a gymnastics discipline in its own right, plus an essential skill support class for our cheerleaders.

Tumbling classes are all floor based and about dynamic skills joined together into a series, using our sprung floors (and we've a MASSIVE sprung floor).

We focus on excellent technique as this is needed to then add on the next skill. 

 

What happens at Tumble classes?

Tumble Level [1]: 4-6yrs, 45min class. 
Working mainly on basic gymnastic floor skills - rolls, cartwheels, bridges.
 
Tumble Level [2]: 50min class. 
Working mainly on walkovers and round offs.
 
Tumble Level [3]: 50min class
Working mainly on handsprings - backwards and forwards.
 
Tumble Level [4]: 50min class
​Working mainly on somersaults - forwards, backwards and twists.

Elite Tumble: 45 min class


We use lots of various skills and drills to break down and learn skills well. Tumbling, whilst there are less skills to learn than gymnastics or other activities, the skills all eventually are performed in sequence one after another – so technical skill is super important.
