Acro Summer Camp Handbook – Coming Soon
What is Acro?
Competitive Acrobatic Gymnastics (“Acro” for short) is a discipline recognized by USA Gymnastics. Acro is the combination of dance, tumbling, and partner stunts performed by synchronized pairs or groups. Routines are performed on a 40’x40’ spring floor and each level has specific requirements that must be met, similar to artistic gymnastics. Engaging choreography and brilliant attire are also a part of this form of gymnastics.
Athletes of varying ages, shapes and sizes are needed in the sport. Smaller, more flexible athletes are needed for top positions, while taller, stronger athletes are ideal for base positions. Both boys and girls are welcomed in the discipline. There are five types of partnerships in competitive acro: Men’s Pairs (2), Women’s Pairs (2), Mixed Pairs (2), Women’s Group/Trio (3) and Men’s Group (4).
Young or beginner athletes may go through recreational training before considering competition. We have had athletes ages 4 to 25 involved in our competitive program. Pair/groups that work exceptionally well together and show great dedication may be invited to travel outside of California with opportunities to compete across the country. Very experienced athletes may be selected to compete for Team USA at international events all over the world.
