Acrobatics and Tumbling

Acrobatics and Tumbling

In a historic turn of events for college sports, the field of Acrobatics & Tumbling was recognized this year at the NCAA Convention as an emerging sport. This marks a new beginning in our ten-year journey for recognition of the sport, which was created at the collegiate level specifically for young women across the country.

As we welcome this new sport to our Student Athletics program, now is a perfect time to show your support for this up-and-coming team. A tax-deductible gift of any size will make an enormous difference to our student-athletes, who are beyond excited to compete at the collegiate level!

Acrobatics & Tumbling was created for women, by women. Only a decade ago, a group of female collegiate coaches came together to conceive of a new sport for young women competing in this skill area. Together with administrators on their campuses, six institutions began a movement that would provide new opportunities for young women who were not served by the opportunities in NCAA Gymnastics and looking for more than a typical spirit program experience. The officially recognized collegiate sport of Acrobatics & Tumbling is the culmination of those efforts.

I’m sure you’re as excited as our students are to begin this new chapter at HPU. Please help us get our team off the ground (so to speak!) with your tax-deductible gift. Show our student-athletes how much you care about their success and how excited you are to see a woman-led program flourish in the NCAA.
