Acrobatics & Tumbling is a separate and distinct sport from Men’s and Women’s Gymnastics ; the governing body for all teams is the National Collegiate Acrobatics and Tumbling Association. Effective August 1, 2020 Acrobatics & Tumbling was approved as an NCAA Emerging Sport for all three NCAA divisions. 

Additionally Stunt has received a recommendation from the Committee on Women’s Athletics to also join the NCAA Emerging Sports for Women Program. Approval of Stunt as an NCAA emerging sport was tentatively scheduled to be determined during the 2021 NCAA legislative cycle, however due to the Covid-19 pandemic this determination may be delayed.

* Average Athletic Scholarship is the average annual amount of athletically related student aid per athlete for ALL varsity sports sponsored by the specific school. Some athletes receive full awards, some receive partial and many receive none. Additionally some sports within a school may be fully funded, some partially and some sports provide no athletic scholarships. Private schools generally have higher tuition than public schools and the average award will reflect this.
