Backward Roll

A non-aerial tumbling skill where the athlete rotates backward into/or through an inverted position by lifting the hips over the head and shoulders while curving the spine (a tucked position) to create a motion similar to a ball “rolling” across the floor.


There may be additional variations of this skill. Please send all skills to the USASF to ensure the skill you are performing is legal for the division and level in which you are competing.
