From preschool to pre-team, the Hurdle Helper is a “go-to” for every coach for creating FUN and creative tumbling, vault and beam stations.  There are 8 different pieces to this system that an athlete can adjust to adapt to drills that improve tumbling height, distance and technique. The vinyl covered components are filled with soft, forgiving foam intentionally in case an athletes foot or body lands on it. Available in two colors: red and purple.
