All Star Cheer / Get ready for high energy, non-stop competition

All Star Cheer is not what you see at sporting events. All Star Cheerleading teams compete a 2-1/2 minute routine against other cheerleading teams. Packed into that routine are stunts, tumbling, pyramids, jumps, and dance. Judges score the routine based on difficulty, sharpness of motions, originality, and hitting all of the stunts correctly.

What people say about our teams

"Thank you for everything you have done for us this year. We have really enjoyed being part of this team. The sportsmanship and leadership skills you continue to instill in our girls is priceless. Sarah has made such good friends and has learned so much. So many of the skills you have taught can and will be utilized later on in life.
We can't thank you enough!"

"I meant to tell you Thank you for setting standards for the girls. I was so proud to see the girls in the uniform (Actions looks the best), arms linked together when they traveled as a group in the lobby. Thank you for enforcing the no Ugs and sweats rule. They do look like classy girls....they stood out and looked professional. Abby had a great time!
Looking forward to Portland..."

"I just wanted to let you know how happy we are with our decision to join Action. Caroline really enjoys going to practice and says that it "just feels right," which is what we've been searching for. Thank you for providing a fun and positive atmosphere for our girls...When we came to check things out and practice with you, I knew within the first 60 sec that this was definitely the right place for Caroline. She told me she can't wait for the 1st competition so she can hear them announce "Action Athletics" and run out on the floor. I've found several drawings of "Action Sharks" in her room and I couldn't be more thrilled that she's identifying with her new squad.
Thanks for everything you're doing and making Caroline feel welcome!"
—Warmly, Angie

Trampoline & Tumbling / Flying, twisting, powerful fun

The gymnastics discipline of trampoline & tumbling, often referred to as T&T, includes competition in trampoline, synchronized trampoline, double mini-trampoline, and power tumbling. Both girls and boys can participate in all four events.

The sport of trampoline & tumbling

Tumbling is performed on elevated spring runways that help tumblers propel themselves higher than a basketball goal as they demonstrate speed, strength, and skill while executing a series of acrobatic maneuvers. Top-level contenders perform explosive somersaults with multiple flips and twists.


While today's athletes perform many of the difficult skills performed by former notable American and international athletes, modern competitions are quite different than those early years. The biggest changes have been in advances in equipment design, the rules and governance, and more systematic training of athletes.

International competition trampolines are larger and more powerful than those used in the early years and a far cry from today's "backyard" models. These modern trampolines propel trained athletes as high as 30 feet in the air during performances.

During two competitive routines of 10 skills each, upper-level athletes can easily demonstrate a graceful array of double, triple and twisting somersaults.

Synchronized Trampoline

Synchronized trampoline demands the same athletic skill as individual trampoline, while adding the element of precision timing. Using two trampolines, two athletes perform identical 10-skill routines at the same time. In this most artistic event in the sport, each performs as a mirror image of the other, doubling the visual beauty of trampoline competition.

Double-mini Trampoline

Double-mini is a relatively new sport that combines the horizontal run of tumbling with the vertical rebound of trampoline. After a short run, the athlete jumps onto a small two-level trampoline to perform a rebounding trick immediately followed by a dismount element onto a landing mat. Double mini is similar in concept to springboard diving, using a mat instead of water.

Our trampoline & tumbling director
Hello, I am Hans Nielson

Hans Nielsen, 29, grew up in Pocatello, ID. Hans has always been interested in competitive athletics. At the age of 9, Hans competed for the United States and won the silver medal at the World Age Group Championships for Trampoline and Tumbling. He was a USA team member in 1996, and again captured a silver medal in the 1998 World Age Group Championships at 14. Hans then turned his focus to High School athletics: soccer, and track and field. In his first year as a competitive pole vaulter, Hans placed 2nd in the state. He began coaching trampoline and tumbling at age 13 in his mother’s gym. His start there led him to opportunities in California and Nevada. Hans is presently the Head Coach/Program Director at Action Athletics. Bellevue has been his home for 4 years, where he produced USA National Team Members as well as a USA National Champion at the elite level.

Hans’s interest in athletics is not a coincidence. His father, Dave Nielsen, was an accomplished athlete competing in Pole Vault at the Olympic trials in 1976. Dave has been named Coach of the Year numerous times as well as coached 2000 Olympic Women’s pole vault champion Stacy Dragilia. His mother, Joy Umenhofer, competed in trampoline, diving, and powerlifting. Her accolades are extensive as well; having coached an 8 time national Sr. Men’s Trampoline Champion, and has received the honor of Coach of the Year from USA Gymnastics 3 times.
