National Team has a Senior team and its Junior team is divided into two age groups; and This is largely due to the fact that schools run out of money to fund the program and therefore it is cut from the school's program.

POWER TUMBLING Power tumbling is performed on elevated runways, generally designed with fiberglass rods underneath, that help tumblers propel themselves higher than a basketball goal as they demonstrate speed, strength and skill while executing a series of acrobatic maneuvers. Explosive somersaults with multiple flips and twists are performed by the top-level contenders. Using two trampoline, side-by-side, two athletes perform identical skill routines at the same time. In this most artistic event in the sport, each performs as a mirror image of the other, double the visual beauty of the trampoline competition.
After a short run, the athlete jumps onto a small two-level trampoline to perform a rebounding trick immediately followed by a dismount element on to a landing mat.
Double mini-trampoline is similar in concept to a springboard diving, using a mat instead of water. Gymnastics skills add excitement to the exercises. Acrobatic balances show grace, strength and flexibility. Choreography and synchronization add flare and creativity to each exercise.
Acrobatic Gymnastics favors body control in various positions, both on the ground and in the air. For this reason, the sport is included in the training program of pilots, cosmonauts and parachutists. Acrobatic Gymnastics is fun for athletes of any age and athletic ability. This sport is a partner sport requiring athletes of all ages, shapes, and sizes. Athletes progress through recreational levels to compulsory Ievelsthen to optional levels 8-elite. Pairs are made up of a base and a top.
Women's groups are comprised of a base, a middle, and a top partner and men's groups have a base two middle and one top partner.
Bases are generally older athletes that display strength and balance. Tops are generally younger athletes and display flexibility and agility.
