TRAMPOLINE + TUMBLING TEAMS
Trampolining is a competitive Olympic sport in which gymnasts perform acrobatics while bouncing on a trampoline. These can include simple jumps in the pike, tuck, or straddle position, to more complex combinations of forward or backward somersaults and twists.
The routines are performed on a standard 14-foot by 7-foot regulation sized trampoline with a central marker. Each routine consists of the athlete performing ten different skills starting and finishing on their feet.
A double mini-trampoline is smaller than a regulation competition trampoline. It has a sloped end and a flatbed. The gymnast runs up and jumps onto the sloping end and then jumps onto the flat part before dismounting onto a mat. Skills are performed during the jumps and/or as they dismount.
SIGS Trampoline + Tumbling teams compete in January - May with national competition taking place in June. The new team year begins in July and current team members are placed by the coaching staff. Tryouts for new team members take place in April.
