TRAMPOLINE & TUMBLING
Our Tumbling and Trampoline (T&T) program provides an intense and enthusiastic atmosphere that promotes growth for our participating athletes.
The competition events include power tumbling, double mini-trampoline, and trampoline routines. The Tumbling and Trampoline Team competes from Level 1 to Elite.
WHAT IS TRAMPOLINE & TUMBLING
The Junior Olympic Program is designed to provide developmental and competitive Trampoline, Tumbling, and Double-Mini opportunities and provide a pool of talented athletes for State, Regional, and National competitions.
Power 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 will perform explosive somersaults with multiple flips and twists.
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 American suburban neighborhoods. These modern trampolines can 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 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 the 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.
