Tumbling Team

Tumbling Team

MISSION

The Asbury University Tumbling Team is an outreach ministry team of the Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation (HPER). This unique ministry uses a combination of gymnastics, acrobatic stunts, and mini-trampoline work in one-hour exhibitions to fulfill its mission of witnessing for Christ through gymnastics.The team is available to perform for churches, schools, and other community organizations during their spring break each year. The team ends its spring tour season with "Jym Jamboree" in early April at the Luce Center on campus.

HISTORY

Founded in 1965, the group has toured throughout the United States, performing for schools, churches, community groups, prisons, and has included shows at the Pentagon and the NAIA National Basketball Tournament. The team has roots going back to 1935 before becoming officially sponsored by the school, offering the first "Jym Jamboree" that year. Through out the years, Asbury University students have used the vehicle of gymnastics and sports acrobatics as a means to communicate Christ's transforming work. We are proud to be an extension of that great heritage.
