Trampolining is a competitive Olympic sport where gymnasts perform acrobatic moves while bouncing on a trampoline. Whether you bounce on the trampoline, the double mini tramp or flip down the tumble track, the fundamental skills are the same and lead on to developing coordination and body awareness.
There are four related competitive components to Trampolining Gymnastics:
- Individual Trampoline consists of an individual competitor performing two routines on the trampoline; a compulsory and a voluntary. The compulsory routine consists of 10 pre-set skills, with the routine judged only on execution and not the difficulty. The second routine also consists of 10 skills, which are chosen by the competitor. The skills in each routine are performed one after the other, with no breaks or extra jumps in between.
- Synchronised Trampoline is judged the same as Individual Trampoline but there are two competitors bouncing on separate trampolines. Competitors are marked on how well they stay synchronised with each other. The routines that they perform must be identical and if either competitor performs a different skill or even the same skill in a different position the routine stops at that skill and they will receive a score for the part of the routine performed before the error.
- Double-Mini Trampoline (DMT) competitors perform two different passes consisting of two skills in a preliminary round and another two passes for finals. No skills may be repeated on the same section of the DMT in these four passes or no degree of difficulty will count for that skill.
- Tumbling is the most similar to artistic gymnastics. Competitors perform two voluntary passes. A tumbling pass demonstrates forward, backward and sideward hands to feet, and feet to feet rotational elements. The elements should be presented showing good control, form, execution and maintenance of tempo. In elite tumbling, passes consist of eight skills performed on a 25 metre sprung floor.
