Mastering a new tumbling pass or trick can be an extremely thrilling moment for cheerleaders, but it comes after a lot of ups and downs. Learning how to perform the skill  and actually achieving it are two completely different things. From the beginning to the end the different stages have meaning and importance, and definitely are all moments we will never forget. Take a look at these six stages of mastering a new tumbling pass (funny GIFS included):

Stage 1: It all begins when your coach yells across the gym to you that they want you to learn how to do a new trick. You start to freak out a little.

Stage 3: After getting tips from teammates and coaches you give it your first shot, with a spotter of course. To no one’s surprise you freak out in the air and end up tumbling to the floor in your spotter’s arms.
