Trampoline, DMT, Tumbling (TR)
- Gymnastics New Zealand National Age Group Programme
- Gymnastics New Zealand International Programme
Our Competitive Programme includes athletes from Senior International Men down to 8 & under Girls and Boys. Athletes must be dedicated to training and follow a strong conditioning programme so that their core muscles are the required strength to perform their skills on tramp. The development squad start by training twice a week and the International Athletes are required to train 5-6 days per week.
Individual Trampoline Trampoline routines are performed on 4 x 4 or 4 x 6 web or string beds that can propel the gymnast up to 30 feet in the air. A competitor takes as many preliminary bounces as necessary for height and control, before beginning the first of 10 skills in a routine. Two routines are performed, a compulsory and a voluntary. The compulsory routine must include the required elements as determined by the competition organisers. In New Zealand it is set out in our technical handbook. The second routine is a 10-skill voluntary, made up of single, double or triple somersaults with multiple twists. A successful routine will show consistency of height, proper technique and a minimum deviation from the centre of the bed. The routine must end under control in an upright position.
Synchronised Trampoline Synchronised Trampoline demands the same athletic skill as individual trampoline, while adding the element of precision timing. Athletes perform two routines, a compulsory and a voluntary. Using two trampolines, two athletes perform identical 10-skill routines at the same time. In this most artistic event, each performs a mirror image of the other, doubling the visual beauty of the competition. The goal is to have both trampolinists in total synchronisation of skills, height and form.
Double Mini Tramp Double Mini-Trampoline is a relatively new sport which combines the horizontal run of tumbling with the vertical rebound of trampoline. After a short run, the athlete jumps onto a small, two-level trampoline to perform a rebounding skill, immediately followed by a dismount element onto a landing mat. Competitors perform two two-skill voluntary routines in preliminaries and two two-skill voluntary routines in finals.
