Power tumbling is performed on an elevated 84 ft spring runway. The runway helps the tumblers propel themselves high into the air. They demonstrate speed, strength and skill while executing a series of acrobatic maneuvers. Top level contenders will perform explosive somersaults with multiple flips and twists.
Although even in the early years of trampolining, notable Canadian, American and international athletes performed many of the difficult skills and combinations of skills that are seen today, modern trampoline competitions are quite different from those of the early developmental years -- due in part to advances in equipment design, changes in the rules and governance, and more systematic training of the athletes. International competition trampolines are larger and more powerful than those utilized in the early years and a far cry from the "backyard" models that are found today in most Canadian suburban neighborhoods.These modern trampolines can propel trained athletes as high as 30 feet in the r 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 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 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.
TRAMPOLINE INTRO 3-5 Years old 1 Hour
Athletes learn basic skills on the trampoline. The focus of this class is to provide a safe, relaxed environment where kids can have fun as they develop their balance, coordination, flexibility, and strength.
T & T BEGINNER 6+ Years Old 1 Hour
Athletes build on the basic skills learned on the trampoline and are introduced to the basics on the tumbling floor.
T & T INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED 8+ Years Old 1 ½ Hour
The intermediate trampoline and tumbling class is a continuation of the direction provided by the beginning class. Students expand their trampoline and tumbling abilities with careful attention to the level of safety required when learning more advanced skills.
