Trampoline and Tumbling (T&T) is one of the newest and fastest growing disciplines in USA Gymnastics. It includes four separate events: Trampoline, Double Mini Trampoline, Tumbling and Synchro Trampoline. T&T is unique in several ways. Athletes DO NOT have to compete in all four events. They can choose to specialize in just one or two areas. Also, athletes do not have to be a certain body type. T&T is wonderful for all types of athletes. T&T is also great for athletes that may have a physical disability. This sport is a great esteem builder, team builder and fun way to learn awesome skills.
Trampoline and Tumbling is also an Olympic event. Trampoline was introduced into the Olympics in 2000 and Tumbling will be added in 2016. Many colleges are also expanding their gymnastics programs to include T&T. Also, many T&T athletes go on to be great stars in Cirque Du Soleil and stunt doubles.
Here at Haydens, ages 5 and up are welcome to join our Trampoline and Tumbling program. Many find that adding a T&T class helps them to cross train for other sports. T&T has been found to be useful for All-Around gymnastics, Cheerleaders, Parkour, Wakeboaders, Skateboarders and Snowboarders, to just name a few. T&T helps athletes to develop a strong sense of spatial awareness. This helps them to conquer the harder skills just a bit easier.
We have a great Trampoline and Tumbling Team, with SEVEN current State Champions. The team is always looking for new ways to challenge themselves. But, if you choose not to compete, you are always welcome in the land of T&T!
