Of course not! I am a cheerleader and I do not tumble. But during tryouts you get more points and have a better chance of making the squad if you do ! Also a tumbler can be a great asset to the team! But hey, everyone can't do everything! You can be the most spirited! Good luck In Cheerleading:)

Yes, but only those who go to a tumbling class or lesson. Some cheerleading teams such as allstars and high school require you to tumble. Some tumbling skills are backhandspring, back tuck, layout and full or layout full twist.
