Trampoline + Tumbling
What is Trampoline and Tumbling?
The gymnastics discipline of trampoline & tumbling, often referred to as T&T, includes competition in trampoline, synchronized trampoline, double mini-trampoline and tumbling. Both girls and boys can compete. .
Power Tumbling: Power tumbling is performed on elevated spring runways that help tumblers propel themselves as they demonstrate speed, strength, and skill while executing a series of acrobatic maneuvers. Top-level contenders perform explosive somersaults with multiple flips or twists.
Double Mini Trampoline: This event combines the horizontal run of tumbling with the vertical rebound of the 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 a similar concept to springboard diving, using a mat instead of water.
Trampoline: Trampolining or trampoline gymnastics is a competitive Olympic sport in which athletes perform acrobatics while bouncing on a trampoline. In competition, these can include simple jumps in the straight, pike, tuck, or straddle position to more complex combinations of forward and/or backward somersaults and twists. Scoring is based on the difficulty and on the total seconds spent in the air. Points are deducted for bad form and horizontal displacement from the center of the bed.
Whatever the event, you're sure to see numerous high-flying skills which include multiple flips and twists combined into one routine. While the skills are on a much more basic level, participation at the beginning can be thrilling and exciting. Bouncing high, learning body control, and developing spatial awareness are all adventures of the sport. It can be a well-suited activity for children and teenagers of any shape and size, coordination, and fitness level.
