The Al Fong Spotting Blocks System Story

Posted on 11/7/2018

By Al Fong

I created the Al Fong Spotting Blocks System because of the way I taught bar skills back in the early 1980’s. To spot releases like jaegers and reverse hechts, I moved my pommel horse under the uneven bars, put additional folding panel mats on top and hoisted my gymnasts onto my shoulder to flip them around to catch the bar, or threw them over the high bar.

Positive Mindset for Cheerleaders!

Posted on 10/4/2018
There will be times where we want to quit and won’t think we’re good enough. Maybe it was a fall or made a mistake in a stunt sequence and after a thorough reminder from our coach, it can be defeating. The feeling as if all options have been expended. The best effort was given. We consciously tried to fix technique. What’s left to fix? [More]


Athletes coaching athletes

Posted on 10/4/2018

By: Skyler Memmel, Central Michigan University Gymnast

As a child, I always had the dream of becoming a collegiate gymnast and I’m proud to say that my dream came true. I am a senior on the gymnastics team at Central Michigan University and I am so thankful to have had this opportunity. I have learned many life skills through the sport of gymnastics which have heightened since the time I became a freshman at CMU. Aside from the many benefits that come along with being a student athlete, the gymnastics team does a little something extra. We have a gymnastics school program that gives our team the opportunity to become coaches to kids around the Mount Pleasant area.

Putting Fitness Activities Into Gymnastics Classes

Posted on 8/13/2018
Fitness, exercise, and fighting childhood obesity are parenting buzzwords. The media continually pounds this home. Schools are beginning to take action and parents are looking for more help. Once parents realize their children receive three of the four main fitness components namely strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility as a benefit of gymnastics, they’ll realize fitness is another key benefit for their kids continuing in gymnastics. In gymnastics we can’t offer them cardiovascular endurance, but we can offer the other three components and direct them to the local soccer club for the fourth. Here are some specific ideas on how to make fitness and athletic preparedness part of your preschool and school-age curriculum.

Is It Possible to Produce High Level Gymnasts Without Sacrificing Health?

Posted on 8/13/2018

I’m going to flat out say it, that this is the question of the year for gymnastics. Every single person in the sport of gymnastics is grappling with this. Coaches, medical providers, gymnasts, parents, and outside spectators. In the last year as gymnastics has been thrown into the darkest point in it’s history. Multiple gymnasts and coaches have told the world their story of how they achieved so-called “success” in the form of medals, podium placements, or college scholarships, but at a massive cost to their physical, emotional, and mental health.

The Evolving World of Dance

Posted on 7/12/2018

Contributor: Alissa Zumer, Tumbl Trak Sales Associate & Dance Teacher


The dance world is always changing and evolving and good dance teachers must change and evolve with it.


I’ve been teaching acro/gymnastics for many years and now more than ever, acro has become a staple in dance performances. Being trained as a gymnast my whole life has made incorporating gymnastics into dance challenging in many aspects. The term “acro dance” has become more and more common in the dance world which is why I’ve transitioned my lesson plans and teaching methods to an acrobatic approach rather than gymnastics.
