Over the past decade, Coach Levi has had the honor of coaching tumbling to dozens of cheer and pom teams to both small and large school districts around the greater Tulsa Area.
Through the years Coach Levi has listened to the needs and frustrations from coaches of teams, athletes on the teams and parents of those athletes when it comes to team tumbling with various coaches. He has not only listened, but he has adjusted, innovated and created solutions to those problems to have the most effective team tumbling program in the state!
Typical team tumbling problems with other coaches Vs. Coach Levi’s solutions
1. Problem: Lack of repetition for each athlete.
Solution: He has created a system that guarantees each athlete to get around 60 passes. This includes running, standing, perfecting passes on their own and spotting new skills. On average Coach Levi will spot 570 passes a hour, this means a mid to average size team should receive 20+ spots on the skills they are working on.
2. Problem: Long extensive warm ups and a slow paced rhythm throughout the hour.
Solution: A quick and effective stretch/warm up that allows athletes to get right into main tumbling skills that need spots or improvements.
3. Problem: Poor emphasis on both standing and running tumbling.
Solution: A very intentional balanced plan to work on both running and standing skills on a weekly basis.
4. Problem: A lot of standing around in lines and downtime while waiting to take a turn.
Solution: iPads with video examples are set up as drill stations that are completed between tumbling passes. This improves conditioning and technique. There is very minimal standing around at Coach Levi's team tumbling practices.
5. Problem: Lack of structure or same exact flow week after week.
Solution: You will not find a more detailed and intentional lesson planner than Coach Levi. Every week he has a customized lesson plan for each team that changes with the season (Ex. off season, competition, tryout)
