Program Structure

Our Tumbling & Trampoline Competitive Team Program, often referred to as T&T, includes competition for boys and girls in trampoline, double mini trampoline, and tumbling. T & T is a great sport for children of all sizes, coordination levels, and fitness levels. From learning forward and backward rolls on the tumbling strip to performing multiple flips and twists on a trampoline, T&T offers an endless challenge of skill acquisition as athletes develop greater spatial and body awareness through safe progressive training methods. Listed below is a brief description of the progressive levels of our T&T competitive program

5-7 hours per week

The preparatory levels are designed to help advance a gymnast from the day he/she enters the gym until he/she is prepared to participate in the Age-Group Competition Program. Levels 1 – 4 may compete at local, State, and Regional levels.  This is a great way for the athlete to prepare themselves for the higher   skills that they will learn as the work their way thru the program.  They will learn routines that they will be able to compete at sanctioned meets.

5-8 hours per week

These levels are USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic’s heart and soul of our competitive program.  Athletes will continue to develop strength, flexibility and strong skill fundamentals.  Levels 5-7 are also eligible at this time to compete at National Competitions.  Athletes must compete at both State & Regional Competitions to be able to go to Nationals.

5-8 hours per week

These levels no longer compete with compulsory routines.  At these levels, athletes will begin performing more complex skills and combinations in routines designed specifically for the individual athlete.  Each level provides a more difficult level of requirements on each event that must be included on every event.  After level 10 an athlete has the opportunity to move on to the elite level and be part of our National team.

Tumbling & Trampoline Competitive Events

80′ Fiberglass Rod Floor

Tumbling utilizes elevated rod-floor runways that enable athletes to jump at heights more than 10 feet and execute a variety of acrobatic maneuvers.

Double Mini Trampoline

For the double-mini competition, the athlete makes a short run, leaps onto a small two-level trampoline, performs an aerial maneuver and dismounts onto a landing mat.

Regulation Trampoline

Trampoline events involve athletes using trampolies that can propel them up to 30 feet in the air, during which they can perform double and triple twisting somersaults.
