Tumble Time headed to Disney for Summit

BY LEN WELLS

Tumble Time Cheer and Fitness, a local cheerleading training facility in Carmi has been selected to compete in The Summit, an event produced by Varsity All Star. The Summit is held at the ESPN Wild World of Sports complex at Walt Disney World Resort April 30 through May 2. 

In order to make it to The Summit, Tumble Time Infinity Elite athletes had to succeed at a bid event held earlier in the competitive season.  

“We are beyond excited for these girls!” said Tumble Time owner and team coach, Whitney Barbre. “They have worked so hard this season to push to be the very best they can be. COVID really put a damper on last year’s season, and the start of this year, but these girls were fully committed to having a season. Summit is a huge deal and is full of the best of the best teams around and we are forever grateful for this opportunity.”

The Tumble Time Infinity Elite Cheer team is currently hosting a number of fundraisers to help cover the team’s competition fees along with travel and lodging costs. If you are interested in helping with the costs, you can make a donation through their Facebook fundraiser, Tumble Time Infinity Elite Virtual Bucket Brigade Team Fundraiser or at their live bucket brigade set for April 17 from 8 a.m. until noon at the intersection of Oak and Main Streets in Carmi or the four-way stop in Crossville.
